    Solaris IO features & benefits

    • Single-wall borosilicate glass vessel, with thermoregulation performed through a Peltier Cell (no need for an external chiller/water supply).
    • Different configurations available for microbial (aerobic/anaerobic) and cell culture applications, with the choice of Rushton/Marine/Pitched-Blade impellers and fluted/L-shaped sparger.
    • Wide range of measurement and control options, including temperature, pH, dO 2 , dCO 2 , redox, antifoam, level, conductivity, weight, cell density (total cells, viable cells).
    • Modbus digital sensors reduce background noise and guarantee quick response time.
    • Suitable for batch, fed-batch and continuous processes.
    • Powerful and accurate (1 RPM) brushless motor.
    • Optional integration of up to 4 analog input/output connections, choosing between 0-10 V and 0-20 mA/4-20 mA (e.g. pumps or valves with power supply independent from Solaris electrical cabinet)
    • Different gas mixing strategies with up to 5 TMFC and/or solenoid valves.
    • Gas out can be optionally integrated with a condenser with Peltier Cell.
    • Extremely compact system maximizes lab space.
