The story of INFORS HT began in 1965 with an unoccupied news kiosk in Basel. In the course of time, the family firm advanced to become one of the most important developers and manufacturer of shakers and bioreactors worldwide. Much has changed since the beginning but a lot of important things remain.

                      Advantages

The Minifors 2 is a compact and easy-to-use bioreactor with a full range of application possibilities. It is a complete package that enables both, beginners and experienced users to easily perform microbial applications.

 Unpack and get started.

The Minifors 2 will take you directly to your bioprocess. The bioreactor is preconfigured and delivered ready to use. Connect the device, mount the vessel, connect pumps and sensors and begin to work after only 10 minutes.

 All this – and more.

The Minifors 2 comes as a complete package with everything you will need for the culture of microorganisms. The fully equipped culture vessel is located on a compact base unit with four freely configurable pumps, pH and pO2 sensors, two fully automatic gas lines with mass flow controllers and a touch screen control unit. In addition, the Minifors 2 offers optional features with which you can understand and optimise your bioprocesses even more easily.

Design for practical applications.

The Minifors 2 has a compact, user-friendly design. With its small footprint and few external connections, the bench-top bioreactor takes up little space in the lab. Your work around the bioprocess will be simplified by special details; for example, the practical vessel holder that enables the safe and risk-free transport of the pump heads and the bottles together with the culture vessel. Also, the steel drip tray can be easily cleaned, even if the bioreactor is in operation.

It speaks your language.

Easy and intuitive means: Get on directly with the bioprocess in only a few steps thanks to understandable controls and without the need for training. The touch screen accompanies you through the experiment in several languages. You can prepare everything in the shortest possible time – from the calibration of the sensors to the configuration of cascades and specification of setpoints.
