Rotating Disk Biofilm Reactor

Unlock the Potential of the Rotating Disk Biofilm Reactor for Your Biofilm Studies

Explore the advanced capabilities of the Rotating Disk Biofilm Reactor, a sophisticated tool meticulously engineered for biofilm research under low to intermediate shear conditions. Designed with a teflon and viton disk housing six 12.7 mm (0.5 in) diameter coupons, this reactor allows for versatile experimentation with various machinable materials. The disk, featuring recesses for coupons and a star magnet for rotation, is placed in a 1000 ml glass reactor vessel with a working volume of approximately 250ml. As the disk rotates in the vessel, liquid growth media/biocide/etc. is circulated, creating optimal conditions for biofilm formation.


Versatile Applications

With the Rotating Disk Biofilm Reactor, you have the power to explore and innovate in diverse areas of biofilm research:

  • Biofilm Formation Studies: Investigate the kinetics of biofilm rate processes, including nutrient uptake, growth rate, and biofilm removal.
  • Coupon Material Variability: Choose from a variety of coupon materials, including plastics, metals, and ceramics, to tailor your experiments to specific industry requirements.
  • Seamless Sampling: Aseptically remove the entire disk for efficient sampling, utilizing the provided tool to remove coupons for further study or imaging using microscopy.
  • Biofilm Research Efficiency: Experience a compact construction with minimum space requirements, allowing for controlled fluid shear independent of bulk residence time.
