Eppendorf is proud to announce the release of the next generation New Brunswick™ CelliGen® BLU cabinet and the much anticipated 50 L CelliGen® BLU vessel offerings. The growing Eppendorf portfolio of New Brunswick CelliGen®BLU rigid-walled, stirred-tank, single-use vessels now leads the market, offering a scalable range from 5 - 50 L total volume, all capable of being controlled from a single cabinet.
The CelliGen® BLU cell culture bioreactor combines single-use technology with the trusted performance and true scalability of a traditional stirred-tank design. CelliGen® BLU has been engineered for high-density animal cell culture in research or production, using interchangeable, single-use, stirred-tank vessels in 5, 14, and 50 L total volume capacities. A compact controller enables advanced process management for research or cGMP manufacturing.
The disposable single-use vessels are pre-sterilized and ready for use right out of the box — no cleaning or sterilization needed. All vessel components in product contact are made of USP Class VI materials and have been tested for leachables and extractables, making them appropriate for GMP environments. Applications include growth of mammalian and animal cell lines in batch, fed-batch and continuous culture.
New Adaptor Kits are also now offered to enable your existing New Brunswick, Applikon or Sartorius controller to be used with CelliGen®BLU single-use vessels, rather than traditional autoclavable vessels.
The powerful Eppendorf New Brunswick RPC (Reactor Process Controller) firmware provides integrated control of up to 32 process parameters, and includes time-saving recipe features, built-in security and the ability to simultaneously monitor up to 8 parameters on user-customizable trend graphs. Options such as 4-gas mixing and multiple thermal mass flow controllers provide all the tools needed to produce high cell densities. The compact control station also features integrated pumps and a large, intuitive, color touchscreen interface, with which users of autoclavable New Brunswick CelliGen® 310 and 510 may already be familiar.
