New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 510

New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 510

SIP benchtop reactors designed to meet the needs of R&D through production.

Product Information

The CelliGen 510 is a compact sterilizable-in-place cell culture system ideal for pilot to small scale production processes. The modular design features a wide variety of standard options allowing this system to be flexible enough to meet most process requirements.

Gas flow
  • Various combinations of one, two, three or four TMFCs:
    • 0.06  –   3 SLPM
    • 0.3  –   15 SLPM
    • 0.6  –   32 SLPM
    • 1  –   64 SLPM
  • Air Wash System with TMFC (0  – 15 or 0  –  32 SLPM)
  • Overlay with TMFC (0 –  15 or 0  – 32 SLPM)
  • Overlay (valve only)
Exhaust line
  • Exhaust condenser
  • Manual or automatic pressure control
  • Rushton-type – Used commonly for robust cell lines such as bacteria, yeasts, and algae, where maximum OTR is desired.
  • Pitched-blade – Commonly used with mammalian, insect or other shear sensitive cell lines for batch, fed-batch or continuous cultures. Produces axial and radial mixing. Provided as standard with the CelliGen 510 bioreactors.
  • Marine – Commonly used with mammalian, insect, or other shear sensitive cell lines for batch, fed-batch or continuous cultures. Produces axial mixing
  • Spinfilter – For suspension or microcarrier cultures where a dip tube inside the filter withdraws cell media as harvest or waste
  • Cell-Lift – Specially designed to provide uniform circulation for both suspension and microcarrier cultures. Can be used with optional decanting columns for perfusion cultures
  • Packed-bed – For secreted products from anchorage-dependent and suspension cells, this impeller immobilizes cells in a bed of Fibra-Cel® Disks to provide extremely high cell densities
  • Single or redundant pH/DO
  • Redox
  • Foam/level
Addition and sampling
  • Resterilizable sampling valve
