New Brunswick Scientific Expands Line of BioFlo Pro Bioreactors with New Pilot- and Production-Scale Models
EDISON, N.J., March 1 / -- New Brunswick Scientific Co., Inc. (NBS) (NASDAQ:NBSC), today announced the expansion of its range of cell culture systems to include new pilot- and production-scale bioreactors in 75- to 300-liter capacities. The new BioFlo® Pro Cell Culture Bioreactors feature a modular design, enabling ready customization, rapid delivery and on- the-spot field upgrades as processing or manufacturing needs change.
These cell culture systems are typically used to grow suspension cell cultures in order to obtain antibodies or proteins, which can be used in turn for treating a large range of medical conditions including asthma, hemophilia, cancer and AIDS. The large-scale units complement NBS' existing, full line of cell culture systems -- which now includes a 500-mL disposable system as well as a series of autoclavable and sterilizable-in-place bioreactors for research through production.
New Brunswick Scientific President and Chief Operating Officer James Orcutt commented, "We find that scientists and engineers are choosing our BioFlo Pro cell culture systems because of the success they have had using our smaller-scale systems, as well as the systems' built-in versatility and quick delivery -- often in as little as 12 weeks. In fact, our new field-upgradeable bioreactors combine the best features of our BioFlo Pro fermentation line -- including ease of operation, maintenance and systems integration -- with a modular design that not only enhances reactivity and adaptability to fluctuating demands, but does so at a very competitive price."
