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.
