Smart Agitation

Everything you need to know about our Company

Smart Agitation

The smart mechanical agitation system is designed specifically for liquid and slurry mixing in standard GL45 bottles. The bottle cap with integrated agitator tube, inlet and outlet is autoclavable and can be used to seal any GL45 bottle. The system can be used for mixing, dissolution and dispersion of most media including particle free solutions and slurries with a high suspended solids content.

  • User friendly setup – simple mounting on a laboratory bottle without using a stand
  • Strong and reliable agitation with minimal risk of irregular spin
  • Integrated bottle cap and motor-holder set fits on standard GL45 bottles of various sizes
  • Flexible design for both single bottle mixing and simultaneous agitation for multiple bottles
  • Modular design for easy cleaning and maintenance
  • Easy to seal bottles and create gas tight conditions
  • Feeding and discharging ports for gas and liquid

New agitators for your laboratory

New agitators for your laboratory

The smart mechanical agitation system is designed specifically for liquid and slurry mixing in standard GL45 bottles in chemical, biological and biotechnological laboratories. The bottle cap with integrated agitator tube, inlet and outlet is autoclavable and can be used to seal any GL45 bottle. With our brushless step motor and control systems, this agitation system offers long-life operations, local / manual and remote control for agitation speed and on / off intervals, manually adjustable direction and time intervals, as well as a timer function for the rotational direction.

New way of reliable mixing

New way of reliable mixing

Bioprocess Control has developed a novel way of mechanical agitation. Instead of using a propeller or a magnetic stirrer bar, a flexible agitator tube, together with an inserted stainless steel agitator rod is arranged to provide clockwise or counter-clockwise rotational movement.

One of the main advantages is its simplicity of mounting on standard GL45 laboratory bottles without having to use a laboratory stand to supporting the agitator. Driven by a high-quality brushless step motor, it provides strong, gentle and reliable mixing; minimizing the risk of irregular spin that is often experienced with magnetic stirrers.

Our smart agitators are most suitable for chemical, biological and biotechnological applications in laboratories. Applications include mixing, dissolution and dispersion for media with low to moderate viscosity.

Flexible and modular design

Flexible and modular design

The modular design allows for easy assembling and disassembling. Each agitator can be operated stand-alone or connected in series of up to 15 agitators.

We offer various agitation packages, including a starter kit with a single agitator and controller, as well as kits for 3, 6 or 15 agitators. When a higher capacity is needed, additional agitators can be ordered and easily connected in series to the existing kit.

Our flexible agitator tubes and the inserted stainless steel agitator rods are made in different lengths and shapes, depending on the size of the GL45 flask. Tubes are also made in different materials to fulfill the requirement for handling different chemical and biological media.

Full control of agitation

Full control of agitation

The agitation system is equipped with brushless step motors with long lifetime requirements. The system can be operated in basic manual mode with speed and adjustable direction controls, or in an advanced mode with remote control for speed and on / off time intervals, as well as manually / local adjustable direction and time intervals. It also has a timer function for the rotational direction.

This allows users to select various mechanical mixing intensities and movements according to their need. Moreover, all connected agitators can be either operated in a synchronised direction mode or set on an individual basis.

Mixing solution for all GL45 flasks

Mixing solution for all GL45 flasks

Bioprocess Control currently offers smart agitation sets for standard GL45 laboratory bottlers from 100 ml up to 5 L in size. For a larger volume of flask (e.g. 10 L) a stronger motor is used to achieve sufficient torque for mixing.

The specially designed cap has three sealing surfaces touching the GL45 flask, in order to provide maximum security in sealing. It also has in- and outlet ports, designed fro gas or liquid, which can be easily blocked if a completely sealed bottle is required. The cap (including the tube) is also autoclavable together with the glass flask, making it easy to create sterile conditions for microbial fermentation and cell cultivation.

Our smart agitation system is a durable, easily operated and cost-efficient mixing solution for various laboratory applications, in particular for multiple agitation processes intended to be operated simultaneously.
