DASGIP presents product innovations during Biotechnica 2007

04.10.2007
Online monitoring of optical density, expanded gassing solutions for small and pilot scale, and a special fermenting system for anaerobic cells

DASGIP AG, leading manufacturer of parallel bioreactor systems, will present a number of innovations at their booth during Biotechnica in Hanover.

OD4, an online monitoring module for optical density, offers fast and accurate measurement of biomass and cell growth in up to four vessels. OD4 utilizes small sensors and a proprietary signal processing algorithm to reduce the signal disturbance caused by gas bubbles in the media. These features make the OD4 module the best OD measurement solution for small scale operation.

DASGIP’s new software edition, DASGIP Control 4.0, offers freely programmable profiles in a very user-friendly operator interface, which makes working with the DASGIP system easier than ever. Other expanded automation features such as the “Triggering Automation Package“ and the parallel operation of up to 16 vessels, can enhance the efficiency of any laboratory.

DASGIP’s advanced gassing solutions have two new additions of mass flow controlled systems: MX4/1 system mixes oxygen, air, carbon dioxide and nitrogen and supplies to one output; while MF4 mixes four freely selectable input gases and supplies to four outlets. Both gassing systems provide safe and efficient gassing to pilot scale production and, with the use of external pressure sensors, can be used with cell culture bags.

DASGIP has also developed a new fermentation system especially for anaerobic microorganisms. Providing monitoring and control of the redox potential as well as temperature control up to 95°C the system has been designed to meet special requirements in biofuel development.

Two seminars will be given by DASGIP at Biotechnica: “Advanced Tools Meeting New Challenges in Biofuel Development“, which details the use of DASGIP’s technologies in biofuel development, will be given by Dr. Christof Knocke on 9th October at 12.00pm. A second seminar will be given by Dr. Jörg Schwinde on 10th October at 3.10pm on “Industrial Biotechnology and Tools for Process Understanding“. The DASGIP team cordially invites attendees to a traditional “Beer &Pretzels” reception on 9th October from 4.30pm in booth G25, Hall 9.

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
