Bioreactors

Presentations | English

It is interesting to know that organisms like yeast, bacteria, and animal cells can be cultivated in large amounts on different biological devices. They are cultivated in bioreactors under controlled conditions. Bioreactors are used in industrial processes to produce pharmaceuticals, vaccines, or antibodies. These are also used to convert raw materials into useful by-product, as in the bioconversion of corn into ethanol. They are devices or systems that supports a biologically active environment and can be either aerobic or anaerobic. They are commonly cylindrical, ranging in size from liters to cubic meters and are often made of stainless steel. A homogenous environment is created by constantly stirring the contents. A controlled environment is created by providing same temperature, pH and oxygen levels. Biotechnology has advanced a lot within a few decades. Bioreactor is one such advancement.
