Eppendorf and DASGIP introduce the first single-use mini bioreactor for parallel bioprocessing

20.06.2012
At this year’s Achema, held from June 18 – 22 in Frankfurt/Main, Eppendorf and the DASGIP Information and Process Technology GmbH, a leading manufacturer of Parallel Bioreactor Systems and comprehensive software solutions for bioprocessing, will show for the first time the new single-use mini bioreactor DASbox single-use vessel.

The development of the DASbox single-use vessel reinforces the strong synergy that benefits both DASGIP and the Eppendorf AG, which acquired the bioprocessing specialist this past January. “Within a very short time we were able to combine the long-standing competency of the Eppendorf AG in the field of plastics technology with our bioreactor expertise, which led to a new product”, explains Dr. Matthias Arnold, member of DASGIP management and head of the development department.

The DASbox single-use vessel is the first single-use bioreactor which was developed for the DASGIP Parallel Bioreactor Systems. As a fully instrumented mini bioreactor with a working volume of 60-250 ml, it was constructed specifically for use in combination with the DASGIP DASbox mini bioreactor system. Especially with cell culture users in mind, the advantages of singleuse technology are combined with the benefits of parallel cultivation and the full functionality of industrial bioreactors. All critical process parameters such as pH, soluble oxygen and optical density can be monitored and controlled using industry standard probes.

Integrated dip tubes allow for controlled addition of liquids, sampling, as well as fully massflow controlled gas supply. The magnet coupled stirrer is only one of the examples for the uncompromising sterile technology of this single-use bioreactor. A special feature of the DASbox single-use vessel is the novel, liquid-free Peltier element temperature control and condensation. This innovation, which enables, amongst others, efficient liquid condensation from the exhaust air, represents a further milestone in the transfer of the requirements of classic bioreactor technology to single-use technology.

The DASbox single-use vessel accelerates bioprocess development. The small working volumes save precious cell material and media, and extensive cleaning and sterilization procedures are superfluous. Less time is required for installation of the bioreactor, and cross contaminations are virtually excluded. Parallel cultivation under precisely controlled conditions delivers reliable results, fast. Further, the comprehensive software functions of DASGIP DASware allow user friendly and detailed capture, saving, analysis and management of resulting data.

We look forward to meeting you at the Achema at our booths:

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
