Bioreactor Equipment

Biostream has the capacity to manufacturer a large range of fermenters and bioreactors. Our company has evolved the last years from service & maintenance and customization on existing bioreactors to supplying a complete range of standard reactors. Our vision is to provide a total solution for our customers with the support of our experienced fermentation researchers.

Research & Development

From 50 ml small scale to pilot bioreactors

Large Scale Production

Application Fields


There isn’t always a need for a lot of simultaneous measurement. Our controllers can be built on customer specific demands, with a freely configurable vessel while still keeping a good quality / price ratio. Regulations in the food market are different compared to the other markets and specific changes can be easy implemented. 

  • Applicable for hydrolyses
  • High temperature of 121 °C for pasteurization and sterilization also for benchtop fermenters. Design will be in stainless steel.
  • Special mixers available like anchor
  • High speed & torque measurement
  • Flexible reactor design


Fermentation technology can be used to convert biomass into high value added products. Various biomass sources are used in fermentation process such as lignocellulosic material (Wheat straw, corn stover and more) and aquatic biomass. Micro-organisms produce a variety of biomolecules, such as metabolites, biopolymers and proteins. Customers use these biomolecules in the fermentation process to develop microbial products such as PHA’s, ethanol, butanol, fatty acids and hydrogen.

  • Applicable for hydrolyses
  • High temperature of cultivation of 100 °C for hydrolyses
  • Stainless steel version can be sterilised
  • Special mixers available for different rest streams
  • High speed & torque measurement
  • Off gas measurement and gas production for mass balance


Sustainable production of food and energy are needed due to the growing world population. The cultivation of microalgae can make an important contribution to the sustainability of our society. Namely, they grow well in waste streams, such as carbon dioxide from flue gases, waste from the agro and industrial enterprises. Here they convert waste into usable raw materials. With algae it’s possible to produce algae oils, proteins, starch and pigments. Due to the fact that there is not really standardization of reactors in this field we want to be really flexible. Although we have seen that flat panel reactors are used at different departments.

  • Extensive control of different LED lights in different formats
  • Easily exchangeable LED strip
  • Fluorescence and light option available
  • Flexible gas mixing
  • Out gas flow measurement with gas circulation back to the reactor
  • So-called luminostat regime which has comparable characteristics as Chemostat
  • Different mixing system like air lift options

Cell Culture

Culture conditions vary widely for each cell type, but the artificial environment in which the cells are cultured invariably consists of a suitable vessel with an accurate control of parameters like gases, pH, oxygen, stirrer speed and temperature. 

  • Wide variety of measurements and control of parameters of possible
  • Easy connection and change of glass and disposable vessels
  • Controller easy adaptable for production systems
  • Software adapted for cell culture needs
