Fluidised bed processes in biotechnology

Fluidised bed processes have become widely accepted in biotechnology. The production of bio-particles by agglomeration and granulation offers several advantages, such as fully automatic process control including the recording of all process data and the reliable reproducibility. The hygienic processing of the product within a closed system and optimal cleaning conditions act as protection against pollution and cross contaminations when handling potentially dangerous substances germs. The separation of production and plant engineering also increases safety when handling bio-materials. Less personnel requirement and less energy consumption guarantee the economic operation of the plant in continuous mass production and in batch operation.

Basing on our extensive experience gained in biotechnology we develop individual solutions for your specific applications.
