BioLector │ Microbioreactor

m2p-labs, now part of Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, is an internationally leading supplier of microbioreactor systems focusing on microreaction and automated solutions for screening and bioprocess development/optimization. The product portfolio comprises high-throughput BioLector microfermentation systems, microtiter FlowerPlates, and automated cultivation RoboLector platforms.

Proprietary online monitoring technology increases the number and the information content of microbial experiments, either aerobic, microaerophilic, or strictly anaerobic. Experiments can be conducted with excellent efficiency and high quality at low costs in microscale. The RoboLector enables the automated fermentation of the whole bioprocess, with its specific integration of the BioLector tool into a liquid handling system.

NextGen Microfluidic Microtiter Plates  //  MF FlowerPlate  //  MF Round Well Plate

We are pleased to announce the Next Generation of Microfluidic Microtiter Plates for BioLector Pro. The NextGen Microfluidic Microtiter Plates (NextGen MF MTP) pave the way for even more advanced process development and optimization of pH-regulated and fed-batch strategies. An improved manufacturing process has made it possible to reduce the CV (coefficient of variation) of the pneumatically pumped liquid volumes to < 6%. Read here how to increase the reliability and comparability of results generated in the microfluidic mode of the BioLector Pro.

"Our BioLector is a fantastic instrument: it tells us what’s happening in many cultures in parallel, real-time, and automated.  We can try up to 48 media or genetic conditions and get a rich data set unparalleled by any other instrument.  It played an important role in optimizing production conditions for our RebM and other steviol glycoside products.  The Flower Plate is a brilliant invention.  Its baffles imitate air sparging in bioreactors, and allow us to correlate our BioLector results  ..."

"The BioLector has been a useful tool both for process optimization and for E. coli strain design in our laboratory. On the bioprocess side, we have screened media formulations in order to develop media compositions limited in specific nutrients. The automatic OD monitoring in the BioLector saves labor and allows us to closely monitor growth patterns such as diauxic shifts that may be less apparent with..."

"We work with the BioLector for 2 years and this micro-fermentation system in parallel has clearly revolutionized the way we work and define our experiments. Easy to use, results reproducibility and its friendly computer interface make the BioLector a powerful tool for the screening of bacterial and yeast strains, optimization of the medium composition and of the culture conditions. The online measurements of biomass growth, pH, dissolved oxygen and fluorescens..."
