Bio-inLine Biofilm Reactor™
The Bio-inLine Biofilm Reactor consists of twelve (12) nylon coupon holder plugs threaded into a black PET lid. The coupon holder plugs can accommodate one 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) diameter coupon each, totaling 12 coupons per reactor (same coupons as are used in the CDC and Rotating Disk Biofilm Reactors). The lid with coupon holders and coupons is mounted to a black PET body which contains a half-inch channel designed to mimic standard half-inch water pipe. The entire chamber seals shut with the help of silicone rubber o-rings, allowing the reactor to hold up to 80psi.
The Bio-inLine Biofilm Reactor was designed to allow the growth and testing of biofilms grown under conditions found in common water distribution systems. They can be easily placed in water piping systems, allowing biofilm testing as needed within the system. This reactor was designed with the original modified Robbins Device (mRD) in mind, but with modifications to improve ease of sampling.
