The Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Fermentor (SUF) is the first single-use system specifically engineered for microbial fermentation, the company claims.
According to Thermo Scientific, the HyPerforma SUF integrates into the company’s existing single-use technologies to achieve exceptional efficiency and scalability across the entire bioprocessing workflow.
Daniel Nelson, product manager, single-use systems at Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: “Through engineering an innovative, single-use exhaust and condenser system, coupled with powerful mixing, we overcame constraints in oxygen transfer to create the first purpose-built single-use fermenter.
“The HyPerforma S.U.F. is a natural progression developed specifically for fermentation processes and a dedicated tool needed to increase choice, flexibility and performance for all bioprocessing workflows.”
Effective mass transfer, powerful mixing, and temperature control using three Rushton-style impellers and baffled, jacketed vessel
5:1 turndown ratio and 3:1 height-to-diameter ratio for consistent scalability and flexibility of process design (both 30L and 300L models)
Efficient exhaust management system, enabling high flow rates (2VVM)
Vertical access door for easy loading and retrieval of the BioProcess Containers and harvest lines
Turn-around times between batches as low as two hours
