When selecting a bioreactor, you can choose stainless steel or single-use technologies, depending on your biomanufacturing requirements. The bioreactor is a key component of your bioprocessing workflow and should be regarded as a strategic asset. It is important that this core technology is carefully chosen, specified, designed and supported, both now and in the future.

Stainless steel bioreactors, at capacities of 10,000 – 20,000 liters or greater, are still the preferred option when producing large-scale products. But single-use bioreactors, typically 1,000 or 2,000 liters, are quickly becoming the preferred option for small-scale production.
