Compact Bioprocess Controller for Bioreactors
- up to 20L
Simultaneous control of two bioreactors
Designed with flexibility in mind, the Agilitech bioreactor controller is adaptable to both fermentation and cell culture configurations. It can be configured with up to 8 pumps (4 for each bioreactor) and up to 8 mass flow controllers for gas measurement (4 for each bioreactor), offering simultaneous control of two vessels. The controller is compatible with glass stir vessels up to 20L and rocking bioreactors with single-use bags up to 20L.
Unique brand-agnostic design
The bioreactor controller can be used with any manufacturer brand bag or glass vessel, including the agitator motor adapters for different types of vessels and impellers. It can also be adapted to your existing equipment and automation/control platform. The controller provides an ideal solution for updating outdated controllers while extending the lifetime of your existing fully functional bioreactors. The system is also brand agnostic when it comes to sensors, giving you the freedom to choose the right sensor for your unique bioprocess, whether that’s Mettler Toledo, Broadley James, Hamilton, PreSens, or another sensor brand.
Space-saving compact design
Components are protected with a durable stainless steel housing and a compact footprint saves valuable bench space. The control system also accommodates additional scales for vessel weight and additional sensors for perfusion applications.

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
