Protein production

Fermenters are ideal tools for scaling up any cell-based protein production process, as they provide better control of physical parameters such as pH, agitation and dissolved oxygen levels,as well as the capacity to generate high cell densities.

A tight temperature control can be crucial during the induction phase if protein solubility is an issue. Thanks to their efficient cooling system, a fermenter temperature can decrease within minutes to reach the desired temperature of expression compared to a shake flasks, allowing the best conditions for your protein expression.

If high cell density is required, the RPF staff has demonstrated expertise in running fed-batch cultures which can increase your production yield up to 15 times compared to a normal batch culture.

We have fermenters ranging from 2L to 20L to suit your various research needs. Below are some images of fermenters from the RPF.
