TECNinox Fermenter/Bioreactor suitable for R&D, small batch production, pilot plant

New & Unused

This unit has the ability to run multiple types of organisms singularly from a minimum fermentation volume of 7.5l to a maximum of 75l. However the unit can run, district volumes in between with the break point at 20l 30l giving the operator great flexibility.
