BioLector XT Microbioreactor & Biomek i5 Liquid Handler Integration

Perform online cultivation experiments and prepare media compositions with the BioLector XT microbioreactor & Biomek i5 liquid handler integration.  Our unique automated screening platform for microbial cultures allows you to design and execute highly elaborate experiments that are on track with biological signals increasing the experiment reproducibility.  Individually triggered sampling, dosing actions (e.g., adding inducer or feed solutions), or inoculation of culture wells in the BioLector XT microplate are executed on the basis of the online, real-time signals from the BioLector XT microbioreactor (biomass, pH value, dissolved oxygen concentration, experiment time, etc.) without the need to stop the shaking of the microplate inside the BioLector XT instrument.

  • Measure biomass, pH value, dissolved oxygen and fluorescence online
  • Increased walk-away time
  • Reduce potential contamination with automation
  • Reliable scale-up to benchtop fermenters
  • Reproducibility and scalability of results

BioLector XT Microbioreactor & Biomek i5 Liquid Handler Integration


The system automatically draws samples, adds media and inducer solutions or inoculates the culture wells triggered by experiment time or BioLector XT microbioreactor online signals. This allows for an increased walk-away time while keeping the same level of quality output.

Reproducibility and Scalability

Take advantage of the integrated system to transform your workflow and get reproducible experiment data. The scalable results make it fast and easy to bring more products to market.


Incorporating cultivation modes with online triggers (real-time signals from the BioLector XT microbioreactor), you get the benefits of continuous operation 24/7.

Reduce Contamination Risk

Fixed Biomek tips are cleaned and decontaminated between actions reducing the potential for cross-contamination.
