Designed for R&D and process development scale-up, SmartGlass vessels
provide easy handling and rapid assembly. Developed to ensure complete process
sterility and minimize lost batches, the vessels are manufactured with the highest standards for surface finish and ease of operation. Improved efficiency of aeration, feeding, and monitoring enhance cell growth and expression.

Available in 0.7, 2, 5 and 13L working volumes, the SmartGlass bioreactor can
be combined with the G3Lab Universal controller and TruBio software for optimal
process management.
