Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's (PNNL's) 8-liter extremophile bioreactor is a metal-free, high temperature, radiation and corrosion-resistant, stirred laboratory fermenter for the cultivation of conventional and extremophile microorganisms. It is particularly useful in the Microbial Cell Dynamics Laboratory (MCDL) for situating in close proximity to high magnetic fields of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) instruments for real-time analysis of culture metabolites. Modular in design, eight culture flasks of 1.5 to 10 liters in volume can be combined. All fermentation processes are controlled by an easy-to-use digital controller.
