The Novaferm cell-cultivation systems are designed for optimal reliable growth of animal and plant cells in an easy, controllable way. The product program includes systems for cells in suspension and/or on microcarrier support. The cultivation volume range is laboratory scale 3—20 l, pilot plant scale 5—75 I and industrial scale 20—1 000 I utile volumes. The basic concept is gently stirred reactors, a well-defined and controlled environment and aseptic design for safe operation over long cultivation periods.

Oxygenation of cell cultures is sometimes a problem because of the sensitive nature of the cell and foaming due to serum in the culture media.

Novaferm AB has developed oxygenation methods available as various products in the Novaferm program.

In small vessels and in process with moderate oxygen demand, surface aeration/oxygenation may be the best solution. The head space gas is continuously changed for a suitable gas mixture. To increase diffusion, a special surface-braking "comb" may be mounted on the agitator shaft.

The supply cabinet/drive unit contains tubing, valves, pumps etc. for distribution of thermostated water, steam, process gases and electricity and is controlled by the Novaferm Fermenter Control System.

A variety of measurement systems in addition to the basic control modules are available, e.g. for gas analysis, turbidity, etc.

Addition of different chemicals, such as alkali/acid or anti-foam agent, can be provided by fixed-speed pumps (or pressurised vessels).

The fermenter vessel, made of high-quality, acid proof stainless steel, is in its laboratory version mounted directly on the drive unit by means of a quick connector.

The fermenter vessels, will be sold to substantially reduced prices.

Aerobe fermenter with double jacket, bottom mounted magnetically coupled agitator, baffles, filter housings for sterile filters, 25 mm electrode connectors in lid, viewing glass and stand. 


Our experienced design and development engineers are using state of the art tools.

All in situ sterilisable fermenter systems are designed and manufactured in accordance with guidelines of the current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) in regard of hygienic and aseptic design of process equipment and piping. A recorded QC is routinely performed during production and delivery. Suitable adaptations can be made on request.

Our products meet common international quality and product safety standards including applicable IEC and CE directives. The pressure vessels are normally designed according to the PED Code for pressure vessels. Design according to other codes can be made on request.

Novaferm AB offers the following services:

  • Analysis and Description
  • Supervision of installation
  • Supervision of start up

  • Guarantee service

  • Maintenance service
  • Supply of spare parts

In addition to this, we are also servicing fermenter equipment previously delivered by Electrolux Fermentation and we keep a selection of spare parts for the Electrolux fermenters in our stock. Documentation for all Electrolux fermenters is filed by Novaferm AB and we are, in most cases, able to supply special spare parts for older equipment, aged 10-20 years.
