6-Vessel Bioreactor

The arrangement of the 6-vessel bioreactor controller allows six vessels to be operated at one time at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). Experiments may be designed to run in series or parallel to provide multiple growth conditions. These are excellent reactors for growth studies involving terminal elecron acceptor variations. Each 500-mL vessel allows precise control of pH, DO, and temperature.
