Our priority is the purchase of a Multi Vessel Bioreactor to meet growing demands for quality research in volatile and metabolite analysis.
At the moment candidate yeast’s can be screened using flasks to measure comparative production, but this technology is extremely limited in that the yeasts are forced to grow in a state of relative oxygen depletion, this can give erroneous results. A multi vessel bioreactor would allow simultaneous small volume fermentations (750mL) of four candidate yeasts in an optimal growing environment allowing accurate selection of superior candidates.
The multivessel bioreactor would also be used for the development of optimal media, and optimisation of growth parameters of candidate yeast or bacteria, these are important steps in researching microorganisms and commercialising a Biopesticide.
