BioGene Fermenters can Grow almost any cell type With a wide range of vessels and impellers, including
Customized options, fermentation and bioreactor systems have the Capacity to grow virtually any cell type: whether it’s anaerobic or aerobic microbes, yeast, Insect, plant 

Microbial cells have sturdy cell walls, and tend to clump together. 

They withstand rigorous treatment, require large amounts of air, and need shearing impellers to break apart the clumps.

Mammalian cells have no cell walls and are fragile and sensitive.

Vessels for these cells come equipped with impellers that gently mix the media and minimize shearing.
