With the development of a brandnew design for bottom-mounted magnetic agitators ZETA is ensuring its technology leap in aseptic mixing process of high volume cell cultures in bioreactors up to 30.000 liter.
Scaling up mixing processes from laboratory to industry scale is a big challenge because of the conflicting demands on the mixing time, shear forces and hygienic design.
The demand from the biotech industry for bigger and bigger vessels for cell cultures, without any quality loss due to inadequate mixing, is huge.
To meet these requirements, the ZETA bottom-mounted agitator has been put through a program of testing for its use in XXL fermenters in a collaborative project with Boehringer Ingelheim and the Institute of Multiphase Flows at Hamburg-Harburg University of Technology.
ZETA’s prototype of the bottom-mounted magnetic agitator was tested extensively in a 15,000 L fermenter over a period of four months.
