  • Total volumes 200 mL and 1000 mL
  • 2 different ratios
  • Ideal for applications including:
    • Cell and strain screening
    • Protein expression and kinetics
    • Fermentation optimisation
    • Synthetic biology
    • Enzyme activity tests

Matt’s take on this product

Matt Wright
Technical Sales Specialist

Revolutionise your lab with the IO – compact, powerful, and designed to elevate your research to new heights.
Introducing the IO, Solaris’ smallest benchtop fermenter/bioreactor option available in 200 ml and 1000 ml volumes. What sets the IO apart is its ultra-compact design, maximising precious lab space while delivering exceptional performance. Ideal for R&D with expensive media, the IO offers cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality. Experience the IO’s innovative thermoregulation system, powered by a Peltier Cell.

Say goodbye to external water supplies as the IO efficiently heats and cools, simplifying your workflow and utility requirements.

    Solaris IO features & benefits

    • Single-wall borosilicate glass vessel, with thermoregulation performed through a Peltier Cell (no need for an external chiller/water supply).
    • Different configurations available for microbial (aerobic/anaerobic) and cell culture applications, with the choice of Rushton/Marine/Pitched-Blade impellers and fluted/L-shaped sparger.
    • Wide range of measurement and control options, including temperature, pH, dO 2 , dCO 2 , redox, antifoam, level, conductivity, weight, cell density (total cells, viable cells).
    • Modbus digital sensors reduce background noise and guarantee quick response time.
    • Suitable for batch, fed-batch and continuous processes.
    • Powerful and accurate (1 RPM) brushless motor.
    • Optional integration of up to 4 analog input/output connections, choosing between 0-10 V and 0-20 mA/4-20 mA (e.g. pumps or valves with power supply independent from Solaris electrical cabinet)
    • Different gas mixing strategies with up to 5 TMFC and/or solenoid valves.
    • Gas out can be optionally integrated with a condenser with Peltier Cell.
    • Extremely compact system maximizes lab space.
