Pilot bioreactor for sophisticated bioprocesses

Techfors

There are practically no limits on flexibility with regard to design and operation, since each pilot bioreactor model is built individually according to your needs. You specify the requirements – we implement them after performing a thorough feasibility study.

Successful bioprocesses start with professional planning

That is why we define an individual requirement profile for each Techfors together with you. Of course, our experts are happy to incorporate their expertise from more than 1,000 installations so far, and accompany you from planning to commissioning.

Retrofit? Anytime!

The modular design of the Techfors makes it possible. Even after commissioning, the bioreactor you want can be expanded with additional options, sensors or analysis devices.

We look after the paperwork

From planning to commissioning, your contact person will assist you with all questions regarding qualification and validation. In addition, we will provide you with all necessary documents for commissioning.
