Orbitally shaken bioreactors
include non-instrumented systems (well plates, TubeSpin bioreactors, shake flasks) in milliliter scale, as well as automated microbioreactors (e.g. Biolector, Micro-24 bioreactor system) and bag bioreactors (Current bioreactors, OrbShake bioreactors) up to cubic meter scale. Like wave-mixed bioreactors, they are characterized by a more homogenous energy dissipation compared to stirred bioreactors for animal cell cultures. In addition, the antifoam agent can, in some cases, be omitted due to the negligible foam production which facilitates the DSP.
