Low-cost, modular, bacteriological fermenter equally suited to simple or more specialist applications in both educational or industrial environments.

  • Vessel size: 2 litres
  • Powerful, direct drive agitation system
  • Pt100 temperature sensor for accurate temperature monitoring by separate controller
  • Wrap-around, silicone heater blanket operates at low-voltage and is washable


Comprises 2 litre borosilicate glass vessel with rigid frame. The 316L stainless steel top plate features 7 x 12mm and 5 x 6.3mm accessory ports for maximum versatility. O-ring seals are mounted on the sterile side of ports to assure sterility and avoid cross contamination. Removable twin baffle and cooling coil ensure cleaning of the vessel is quick and easy.

Agitation and temperature module

Agitation is provided by a vessel-mounted, powerful d.c. direct drive motor which is locked to the stirrer paddle so that it cannot be removed accidentally. Both agitation and temperature are controlled by the same module, which uses an industrial-grade Pt100 sensor for stable measurement with temperature displayed on an LED readout. Cooling is on-demand, operated by a valve mounted on a separate service plate, thus separating water and electrics.
