Product Information

The SciVario twin is a next-generation bioreactor control system suitable for microbial and cell culture as well as stem cell applications. The system is capable of controlling two vessels at the same time, either glass or single-use. Compact, adaptable for changing requirements in the future, and its' intuitive VisioNize-onboard user interface make this the ideal controller in R&D and process development. Digital sensor technology, wide range pumps and gassing system, and a guided workflow to guide you step by step are just some of the features that will help you growing your cells. The controller integrates seamlessly into the Eppendorf Digital Lab, enabling remote monitoring and notifications for your peace of mind.
