This single-use stirred tank bioreactor can be operated in a choice of working volumes ranging from 0.6L to 2L, and is suitable for the cultivation of mammalian cells, including stem cells, insect and plant cells.

• Proven glass bioreactor design with the efficiency and flexibility of single-use systems

• New single-use sensors for non-invasive measurement of the pH and dissolved oxygen

• Connection Boxes for BIOSTAT® controllers and other brands of bioreactor controller

Sartorius Stedim Biotech presents UniVessel® SU, the second generation of its successful single-use bioreactor. Typical areas of application for the UniVessel® SU are process development and optimization, as well as production of seed cultures and cell banks.

Fast and flexible for efficient management of peak workloads despite challenging timelines
UniVessel® SU combines the proven design of conventional glass vessels with the efficiency and flexibility of single-use systems. Supplied as a completely preassembled and presterilized unit, this laboratory bioreactor is instantly ready to use right out of the box. It eliminates the need for labor-intensive steps, such as autoclaving or installation of probes, minimizing the time needed for preparation. The new UniVessel® SU can be used interchangeably with glass vessels to help laboratories better manage peak workloads despite challenging timelines.

Single-use sensors for non-invasive measurement of pH and dissolved oxygen
Each UniVessel® SU is equipped with integrated single-use sensors for pH and dissolved oxygen measurement. This proven single-use sensor technology, which SSB also uses in its BIOSTAT® RM and BIOSTAT® STR disposable bioreactors, measures the pH and DO values non-invasively, thus eliminating time-consuming autoclaving and risk-prone insertion of probes in the culture vessel.

Connection Boxes interface UniVessel® SU with existing bioreactor controllers
UniVessel® SU is compatible with SSB BIOSTAT® controllers and can also be operated with nearly any other brand of bioreactor controller. This saves customers from having to buy expensive new equipment. The new UniVessel® SU Connection Box enables the integrated single-use sensors of UniVessel® SU to be used with existing controllers. Up to four bioreactor controllers can be interfaced per Connection Box. The sensor calibration data can be read in easily by a barcode scanner in an error-free manner.

Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
