Main Equipment at BCC

Class II Biosafety cabinets ensure that people, products, and the environment are protected. They are used for sterile handling of microbial or animal cells.

An incubator is an equipment used to grow microbial or animal cultures. The incubator can maintain optimal temperature and humidity, as well as carbon dioxide and oxygen levels.

This 3.1 l bioreactor (max. 2 l working volume) can be used to grow microbial cells in batch, fed-batch or continuous mode, in a sterile and controlled environment.

This 3.7 l bioreactor (max. 3.3 l working volume) can be used to grow microbial or animal cells in batch, fed-batch or continuous mode, in a sterile and controlled environment.

The Allegro XRS 25 bioreactor system is a single-use bioreactor system with unique agitation and control properties designed for the cultivation of mammalian cells in suspension culture under controlled conditions.

The Allegro™ STR bioreactor has a direct bottom-driven impellor allowing power inputs up to 0.25 W/kg, resulting in high oxygen transfer rates and short mixing times. All product contact surfaces in the Allegro STR bioreactors are single-use components and therefore the demands on maintenance, cleaning and cleaning validation are minimal.

iCELLis™ fixed-bed bioreactors are a robust, compact adherent cell culture solution delivering (scalable) performance (from 0.5 to 500 m2) to support clinical and commercial production.

ÄKTA Avant is a preparative protein purification chromatography system designed for the development of biotechnological processes.

The Centramate™ 500 S bench top tangential flow filtration system provides biotechnology and biopharmaceutical drug developers & manufacturers with an ultra-compact portable unit for process development in ultrafiltration (UF) and diafiltration (DF) applications.

Pall’s PKP-2 modular automated chromatographic system is designed to perform all types of low-pressure column biochromatography (e.g., ion exchange, affinity, mixed mode, hydrophobic interaction, size exclusion and hydroxyapatite) and membrane chromatography. This system is suitable for small-scale production or process optimization.

Autoclave for sterilization at 121 °C for 20 minutes using steam under pressure to kill any potential bacteria, viruses, and even spores present in the material put inside of the vessel.

Optical light microscopes are used to magnify samples that are too small and difficult to see with the naked eye, between 40x and 1000x. They are also essential for observing details during sample analysis and evaluation.

Optical microscope that uses fluorescence instead of, or in addition to, scattering, reflection, and attenuation or absorption, to study the properties of organic or inorganic substances.

Fully equipped multimode spectrophotometer for UV-vis absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, cell counting and viability measurements in a multi-well sample format.

Viable/non-viable cell staining and quantitation in Bioreactors must be accurate and reproducible. Relying on manual cell counting techniques leaves you open to costly errors. The Vi-CELL™ XR cell counter overcomes these issues with automated cell staining and counting in just a few minutes with customizable cell types for individual needs. 

The Vi-CELL BLU prepares and analyzes small samples fully automatically and cleans itself after use. It expedites processing by now having the option to use a 24-position sample carousel or a 96 well plate for sample delivery.

Automated analyzer for the determination of a wide range of analytes in aqueous solutions such as cell culture and fermentation media.

HPLC for separation, identification and quantification of specific components in mixtures. The mixtures can originate from food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biological, environmental and agriculture, etc, which have been dissolved into liquid solutions.

The SoloVPE System is the technological innovation behind the Slope Spectroscopy® technique. Unlike traditional UV-Vis methods that rely on a single absolute absorbance value, slope spectroscopy methods use section data (absorbance vs. pathlength data) to determine a slope value for quantitation of sample concentration using the slope spectroscopy equation (m = ec) which is derived from the Beer-Lambert Law.

The CTech™ FlowVPE® System uses the power of Slope Spectroscopy® for online process monitoring and process analytical technology fields. Offering process insights and enabling innovation, the FlowVPE helps accelerate development, reduce risk, and increase process efficiency.
