SciVario twin bioreactor control system with two single-use bioreactors BioBLU from Eppendorf

SciVario® twin

The next-generation bioprocess controller

In a fast-changing field like modern biotechnology, working with a system that grows with you and adapts to your needs reduces setup time and additional investments into new bioprocess equipment. The new SciVario twin bioreactor control system is the first product of our new bioprocess controller platform SciVario for small and bench-scale devices.
Step into the digital age with highly innovative hardware and software advances and a new intuitive user-interface.

More Bioprocess Customer Voices

“I got to know the SciVario® twin bioprocess control station as a well-conceived bioreactor platform, which was easy to use, especially due to the logically structured user-interface of the software.
A big advantage of the new controller is the sophisticated modularity of the vessel sizes that ensure an easy exchange of various bioreactor volumes without the need to invest in completely new control systems. Already during our first field-test, the controller worked smoothly and produced solid, reliable results, comparable with our DASGIP® Bioblock system.”

SenseUp GmbH, Dr. Regina Mahr

“The software was very easy to understand. We did not need a complex user training to get familiar with it and all its features. We especially liked the fact that the UI takes one through the workflow, which helps a lot in avoiding mistakes.”

GenMab A/S, Patrick Priem
