HOW IT WORKS
The atSpiro ShakeReactor is a wireless monitoring and control add-on for shake flask fermentation and cell cultivation. The ShakeReactor upgrades a shake flask into a bioreactor, but without the time consuming setup and take down.
· Setup experiments in minutes (< 15 min. handling) Single use sensors and liquid containers eliminate hoses, calibration, and clean-up afterwards
· High oxygen transfer with large filter area (0.2 µm pore size)
· High quality experiments with 3 programmable pumps Perform pH control, feeding and induction profiles
· Cloud database for analysis and visualization Online monitoring and analysis from your PC or phone
cell expansion, and
laboratory fed-batch production
We believe that it is too slow and too expensive to bring biotechnology products to market. By combining novel sensor technology, modern data analysis, and automation we will overhaul the bioprocess development industry and radically lower the barrier to entry within biotechnology.
We have the technology, the know-how, and the ambition to become the go-to fermentation platform for bioprocess development across biopharma, industrial biotech, and food-biotech.
atSpiro was founded in September 2019 at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
Key partners and Supporters
In April 2020 we signed a collaboration agreement with Novozymes. As part of the collaboration Novozymes scientists will evaluate atSpiro ShakeReactor prototypes and determine how they can create value for Novozymes moving forward.
On the 20th of April 2020 we packed our things into a trailer and moved to Søborg in the Alfa Laval Innovation House. We are exited to be part of community of startups building the future of industrial innovation!
Together with researchers from the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark we are validating our prototype and finalizing our design.
