With respect to automation it is preferred to provide a stackable bioreactor design. Hence, we are able to implement a production capacity that equals 40,000 roller bottles or even more on a footprint of 20 square meters.
The disc reactor comprises all relevant features with an inoculation port (no.3) that is directly connected to the porous cell compartment (no.9) through a tube like recess (no.11).
This embodiment has further a port for inflow (no.2) and outflow (no.4) of medium that flows thorugh the porous cell compartment.
Because of the large cross-section and the relatively small thickness of the porous cell compartment the cell culture can be efficiently supplied with medium at extremely low flow velocity while using high flow-rates of medium.
