DASbox: Mini Bioreactor System for flexible and effective Bioprocess Development
DASGIP AG an industry leading supplier of parallel bioreactor systems and comprehensive bioprocess software solutions has launched its new and unique mini bioreactor system DASbox at Biotechnica in Hannover.
The DASbox serves users with the full functionality of industry bioreactors on minimal lab space. Designed as 4-fold modular system with working volumes of 60 – 250 mL it provides highest flexibility for bioprocess development. DASbox modules can be linked up to 24 and even more parallel operating mini bioreactors.
Requiring only 3 inches/7.7 cm of bench space per bioreactor it is the world’s most compact, industry standard mini bioreactor system for cell culture and microbiology. A 24-fold DASbox system only takes up approximately 6 feet/1.8 m of lab bench space.
The DASbox is a perfect fit for clone & cell line screening as well as media optimization. Users in bioprocess development can easy and flexible increase their experimental throughput. Bioprocesses are controlled as effective as in large scale manufacturing bioreactors allowing for easy up-scaling. The DASbox includes advanced temperature and agitation control, precise monitoring and control of pH and DO as well as state of the art multipump and gasmixing modules.
The DASbox impresses by its user-friendly operation design. Integrated storage slots for unused bioreactor components and telescopic base for effortless handling, e.g. during sampling are only a few features mentioned.
Combined with DASGIP’s Software Solutions Suite DASware, it supports the FDA’s QbD approach by providing comprehensive information management, integration of 3rd party analyzers, and DoE tools as well as remote access via PC, Notebook, iPhone and iPad.
DASGIP has been an industry leading supplier of benchtop bioreactor solutions for the biotech, pharma and chemical industries as well as academia and research institutions since 1991. Process engineers, scientists and product developers use DASGIP Parallel Bioreactor Systems and Software Solutions for the cultivation of their microbial, plant, animal and human cells to benefit from increased productivity, high reproducibility, and ease of scale up. A team of more than 70 in-house experts contribute to the ongoing success of the company with a compound 5 years annual growth rate of about 25%. DASGIP is headquartered in Juelich (Germany) and has operations throughout Europe, North America and Asia.

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.
A warming planet
Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
New technique promises tunable laser devices
Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
