Accelerate protein production with a LEX bioreactor
Epiphyte3's LEX ("Large-scale EXpression") bioreactor technology was developed at the Structural Genomics Consortium as an efficient, high-throughput method for growing E. coli cultures for protein expression.
With the capacity to grow up to 40 x 1-litre cultures (or 24 x 2-litre cultures) in 46" of lab bench space, our LEX bioreactor products are ideal for research labs and core facilities that want to avoid cumbersome shaking incubators and flasks.
How it works
LEX uses industry-standard GL-45 threaded glass media bottles to grow your cultures.
LEX uses filtered, compressed air to provide aeration and mixing to each individual growth culture.
LEX culture bottles are immersed in a digital temperature controlled water bath.
LEX bioreactors are more affordable than shaking incubators, per liter of cell culture capability. Perhaps more surprising is the time savings that labs discover when they adopt a LEX bioreactor.Here are just a few of the simple ways that LEX saves you time when compared to using flasks and shaking incubators:
Do you only require the capacity of a single floor mount shaking incubator? Then LEX-10 is for you.
Whether you're a large high-throughput core facility with existing shake flask infrastructure or a small lab just starting out, there's a LEX bioreactor system for you.Available in three models - using either 2L or 1L bottles, you can grow from a single culture up to:
