The MiniBio2 is an improved verison of the original Applikon MiniBio bioreactors. Autoclaving, installing and connecting tubings are simplified resulting in time savings in setting up these systems. The MiniBio2 range of bioreactors (250 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml total volume) is a true scale down of the classic laboratory scale bioreactor. The MiniBio systems have the same flexibility as the laboratory scale bioreactors. This means that the MiniBio2 systems can be customized to fit the demands of any process. The small volume reduces media costs and maximises bench space, which is normally at a premium.
