Description: Small multipurpose laboratories require flexibility to perform different bioreactor operations. The dual-purpose bioreactor described in this poster can be used to perform both microbial fermentation and cell culture. Alternative protein sources are poised for rapid growth, and this dual -purpose bioreactor with a working volume of 7 litres in fermentation mode and 3 litres in cell culture mode is designed for smaller laboratories where space is a concern and are considering alternative protein research. This bioreactor is steam sterilizable in both modes with two types of agitation. The fermentation mode has a typical rotational stirred tank agitator and the cell culture mode utilizes a reciprocal type agitation. The design has two headplates which support each of the agitation systems, the headplates are configured to be compatible with Eppendorf BioFlo accessories. This project is in the fabrication phase and function testing is the next phase.
