Gilson have published their latest application note entitled “FC 203B/FC 204 Fraction Collectors – Simplify your Fermentation Sampling”.
Fermentation systems are used to provide an optimal growth environment for many different types of cell cultures. The ability afforded by fermentors to carefully control temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen concentrations makes them essential for efficient large scale growth and expression of fermentation products. The system can then be used to characterize the culture in a more quantitative and precise way.
The Gilson FC203B is a compact fraction collector that can be easily located next to the fermentor and allow sampling over several days (night & day) and features cooled racks as an option to maintain the fractions collected at low temperature.
A Gilson peristaltic pump (Minipuls 3) can be integrated to the Fraction Collector in order to transfer samples from the fermentor to the collection tubes. In case there is a risk of precipitation, the peristaltic pump can be used to return the sample located in the tubing back into the fermentor, or in a sterile environment, to rinse automatically the collection tubing between each cycle and collection.
Gilson offers a large selection of fraction collectors: FC204 for more capacity, GX for closed vial collection and/or quencher addition.
