The Auto Culture modes, standard on the Eppendorf BioFlo® 120 bioprocess control station, offer push-button automatic process control for some of the most common microbial and mammalian cultures. Process control loop modes and setpoints are automatically turned on and populated with values.
The Auto Culture modes allow users, who are less familiar with bioreactors and fermentors, to achieve quick and easy initial culture success. All setpoints and modes of operation can be adjusted, optimized, and saved as user-defined recipes. For this application note, an E. coli batch fermentation was conducted.
