Eppendorf BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f single-use fermentors convince in DECHEMA® kLa performance study.

The performance of the BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f Single-Use Vessels is highlighted in an external report, which was recently published by the DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V. (Society for Chemical Engineering  and Biotechnology).

A sufficient supply of oxygen is crucial for aerobic bioprocesses. To help the users to objectively compare the performance of bioreactors in terms of oxygen transfer, the DECHEMA expert group on “Single-Use technology in biopharmaceutical manufacturing” developed a standard operating procedure for measurement of the volumetric mass transfer coefficient (kLa), and using this protocol, different manufacturers experimentally determined the kLa values of their single-use fermentors. With kLa values > 500 h-1 the Eppendorf BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f Single-Use Vessels outperformed the other lab-scale fermentors tested.
