The pharmaceutical fermentation process demands the highest level of quality and documentation/validation of all the materials, vessels and process steps that are used. All the equipment, systems, and procedures must be in compliance to the ruling standards (such as FDA, GAMP, cGMP, ASME BPE, etc.), statutory provisions and regulatory requirements. Fermentation is the beginning of all bio-processes and therefore all pharmaceutical manufacturers demand the highest standards with regard to their fermentation systems (if you start with a faulty product you will probably also finish with a faulty product). Every function, every component and every detail has to comply 100 percent with the quality standards. The use of a high-performance and reliable fermentation system will in itself ensure that many of these conditions that are essential to safe and high-quality production are fulfilled. GEA Liquid Processing (GEA Diessel) has been developing and building fermentation systems for the cultivation of micro-organisms and human or animal cells for over 20 years. Whether for individual fermenters/bioreactors or multi-stage fermentation systems, manufacturers again and again put their trust in GEA Liquid Processing's efficient, customized plan.

GEA Liquid Processing gives you the best possible start. Whatever it is you want to use your fermentation plant for - to manufacture recombinant genetic products for therapeutic purposes (TPA, interferon, insulin, h-Factor VII) or growth hormones and enzymes, or for diagnostic purposes (monoclonal antibodies) - our great diversity of concepts will provide for any task to be performed and take account of any requirements or conditions. We use state-of-the-art components and employ the best valve technologies (typically we used the advanced Tuchenhagen valves) to produce high-performance fermenter/bioreactor skid-mounted systems. Together, we will find the most appropriate solution to cover your demands and requirements.

Fermenters/bioreactors from GEA Liquid Processing give you:

  • long-term sterility during medium or nutrient change, aseptic sampling, aeration, venting or transfer
  • highly accurate temperature control
  • stirrers adapted to provide optimum oxygen transfer rates and cell densities
  • a design free of dead-leg areas
