Industrial stainless steel bioreactor

The third generation of a model with advanced and reliable technologies

By volume

By application

Basic Configuration

A wide variety of stainless steel vessel types in different volumes

The vessels are available in a wide range of working volumes, from 20 to 200 liters and in different geometries, for microbial, cell culture and airlift solutions.

Ports can be found on the lid, side and bottom.

industrial biorreactor lid

A lid with easy maintenance and a variety of port configurations for different uses

The lid design offers a wide range of possibilities for operation due to available space for ports, which provide functional versatility for material and information exchanges. Easy cleaning, handling and maintenance are enabled thanks to a crane to lift the lid.

Industrial stainless steel bioreactor

A powerful and precise bottom agitation module with easy maintenance

A precise motor to serve the complete vessel range and a wide range of rpm, with bottom agitation to free up space in the lid.

Turbine options range from Rushton and Marine to other customized option upon demand. For control see MARTA.

Industrial pumps

A premium quality pump configuration for specific needs, with advanced control

The addition module includes 3 peristaltic pumps for accurate and linear flow, enabling reliable scaling. Integration of optional additional pumps with variable speed allows for Batch, Fed-Batch or Continuous Processes. Integration with weight control available, see MARTA.

A reliable and precise gas module with flexible and advanced control options

The standard gas module in F3 units includes Air supply with rotameter, through sparger and overlay supply, as well as advanced control.

Additional gas lines and associated control loops are available, with their feedback loops. MARTA enables advanced control.

heat exchanger industrial biorreactor

An efficient integrated temperature control with ergonomic utilities management

The temperature module includes a jacket, combined with a primary circuit and advanced control with a feedback loop, in order to heat and cool automatically the contents of the bioreactor through the circulation of water from a cold water tank to the jacket. For control see MARTA.


High quality instrumentation for advanced analysis

A set of standard sensors, and a range of available additional sensors enable reliable measurements, monitorization and data analysis as well as use of trigger values for feedback control of actuators.

Presure sensor

High capacity condenser and pressure control for exhaust gas line

The equipment includes a shell and tube condenser, a manual needle and solenoid valves in exhaust gas to control pressure and moisture effectively.

Automatic pressure control, exhaust gas filtering or heater can be included as optional Add-Ons.

Industrial steel valve

Re-sterilizable sampling valve for simple sampling during operation

The sampling valve of the F3 equipment allows for multiple sampling during operation. The sampling solution is re-sterilizable and includes a manual steam valve and steam condensate outlet with steam trap.

Simple and safe Sterilization in Place (SIP) to facilitate operation

There is an automatic sequence for the sterilization of the bioreactor, the rest of the sterilizations, such as transfer, addition, sampling and harvest lines when applicable, being performed manually. For control see MARTA.

Includes a touch PC attached to the BCU and a license of MARTA software

MARTA has been developed on SIEMENS WINCC platform to guarantee advanced control, visualization and registry of data of the specific process, with the option of upgrading automation functions with additional modules. For more information see MARTA.

Possibilities for future expansion – Plug&Play

The presence of accessible spare signals and wired connectors allows for future integration of additional instrumentation and actuators, and Bionet’s bSmart Modules in a Plug&Play fashion.


A full ecosystem of tools
within a single design environment.

  • bBreath
    The Plug&Play module you need to carry out O2/CO2 composition analysis of your bioreactor exhaust gas (i.e. metabolic predictions) and get the maximum of this data to enhance the quality and productivity of your process.
  • bVSP
    he Variable Speed Pump (bVSP) is the module you need when expanding the number of freely assignable pumps to cover multiple additions or withdrawal/harvesting actions according to a number of feeding/bleeding profiles or advanced controls.
  • bCPM
    The Plug&Play module you need to carry out different continuous strategies for an increase in your bioprocess productivity.
  • Flexible Gas Module
    This is the software module you need to be able to select other gas than air and O2, required for anaerobic processes or to use CO2 as an acidifying agent for pH control.
  • bScale
    The bScale is the Plug&Play module that you need for the connection of scales, from a range of scale precisions and brands used in lab and production settings.
  • Other Add-Ons
    The Plug&Play module you need to carry out O2/CO2 composition analysis of your bioreactor exhaust gas (i.e. metabolic predictions) and get the maximum of this data to enhance the quality and productivity.
  • Upstream Services
    We reduce the "time-to-market" of new bioproducts thanks to our expertise to provide a holistic bioprocess solution. We do this by accompanying our equipment with a range of process services that help clientes to take crucial decisions and support them all the way through the selection and operation of the technologies, and the acquisition of the scientific knowledge necessary to enhance the potential of the process. This includes Upstream Proof-of-Concept Trials, Upstream Optimization Services, Bioprocess Scale-Up, Installation and training and Fermentation Courses.
  • Clean in Place
    BIONET offers a fully integrated CIP system all in the same frame, with no extra-footprint, with a premium recirculating pump, using the dossing pumps for acid and base additions and the pH probe for control. The CIP can be done withour external devicen and controlled with the MARTA software, in which the CIP Module allows for programming of cleaning cycles in recipes. This recipes can be created and saved to allow for standardization of cleaning and productivity.
