Distek Releases BIOne Single-Use Bioreactor System
Product News May 20, 2016
From the company that has brought you 40 years of excellence in laboratory pharmaceutical instruments, Distek, Inc. has introduced the BIOne Single-Use Bioreactor System. Distek, Inc. has developed a benchtop scale single-use bioreactor (SUB) system for mammalian cell growth and recombinant protein production. The pre-sterilized BIOne system is engineered with a disposable head plate welded to a tri-layer liner that can be easily inserted into a non-sterile bioreactor glass vessel, converting it to a sterile, disposable SUB within a matter of seconds with minimal investment.
All materials are USP Class VI, animal derivative free and utilized in existing single-use products. “Our expansion into the biotech arena marks another major milestone in Distek’s long standing company history. As the bioreactor market continues shifting to single use technologies, our BIOne product line will offer an innovative approach to greatly assist our customers in the transition from autoclavable reactors,” says Jeff Brinker, President of Distek.
The "patent pending" BIOne SUB liner will mold to and mimic your existing glass system allowing you to continue using your existing cabinet, probes, motor, heating jacket and recipes. Since the liner is nearly identical to the existing glass vessel geometry, there is no need to change or modify your process. The Distek BIOne system significantly reduces turnaround time by allowing users to seamlessly transition to a disposable platform while utilizing their existing equipment, without compromising the scalability of their current process.
“This is a very exciting product launch for us on many levels. Not only are we expanding our business into a new market space but we are immediately establishing Distek as an innovator just as we have been doing for over 40 years in small molecule dissolution testing,” says Jeff Seely, Vice President of Sales & Business Development, Distek, Inc.
