ePILOT Bioreactor

Maximize research and production results with Pilot Scale Bioreactor


With replaceable vessels and working volumes of 10, 20, 30, and 50L, these bioreactors offer maximum efficiency and flexibility to take your research to the next level.

Its replaceable vessels make cleaning and maintenance easy, and the system is designed to minimize contamination risk. Furthermore, the system’s versatility can extend to applications such as a plant bioreactor, allowing a wide range of research possibilities.

Achieve precise weight control with the Load cell

The peristaltic pumps feature a 2 in 1 concept with multi-way pumps that are adjustable and can even function as fixed pumps. The system also includes an auto sterilization feature with a steam self-generation system for SIP. TECNIC has designed special additional valves and a large sight glass for easy monitoring and control.


Weight and dimensions

The ePILOT® Bioreactor approximately measures 1095 mm in length650 mm in width, and 1855 mm in height. There are four different vessels which their system weight approx and working volumes:

  • 10L Vessel: 300 (microbial) | 290 (cellular) kg with a working volume of 1.5 | 2 to 10L
  • 20L Vessel: 325 (microbial) | 300 (cellular) kg with a working volume of 2.3 | 3.5 to 20L
  • 30L Vessel: 350 (microbial) | 310 (cellular) kg with a working volume of 3.6 | 5.5 to 30L
  • 50L Vessel: 400 (microbial) | 325 (cellular) kg with a working volume of 5 | 8.4 to 50L
The vessel design of the ePILOT Bioreactor is ideal for versatile volume adjustments in bioprocess. Furthermore, it enables the customization of equipment features, to meet user needs by exchanging different vessels, providing an excellent solution for scaling up production (10L, 20L, 30L and 50 L). The vessel is manufactured with stainless steel, regarding an aspect ratio of 1:3 (diameter: height) for microbial culture and 1:2 for cell culture.
With a 15-inch touch screen interface, our pilot scale bioreactor provides an intuitive control system. This system facilitates the monitoring and adjustment of key parameters in culture growth, ensuring maximum accuracy in the process.
Composed of a set of digital sensors, our system controls and monitors pH, pO2, temperature, and level/foam in real-time. This level of oversight is a cornerstone in achieving high-quality biotechnological outcomes, which guarantees optimal conditions for the growing and development of both cells and microorganism.
With the ePILOT Bioreactor, we achieve maximum hygiene and sterilization through steam with the included ‘External SIP version.’ For facilities unable to generate vapor, an “AUTOSIP version” is available, integrating electric resistances within the equipment to generate vapor.
Our equipment provides two precision-controlled impellers: the 6-blade Rushton turbine for microbial fermentation and the 3-pitched blade for cell culture. Governed by a servomotor, these impellers maximize efficiency and productivity by adjusting agitation velocity and intensity, delivering a power of 400W for optimal bioprocessing performance.
