The Model DFR 110 Drip Flow Biofilm Reactor consists of four (4) parallel test channels, each capable of holding one (1) standard glass microscope slide sized coupon, or a length of catheter or stint. Media is provided by dripping over the coupon or catheter surface. Biofilm growth conditions provide low shear, short residence time (2 minutes). Catheter and stint studies can also utilize the alternate end media port to provide flow within the catheter or stint. Media flows via gravity to provide a very low shear condition.
The Drip Flow Reactor is ideal for microsensor monitoring, general biofilm studies, biofilm cryosectioning samples, high biomass production, medical material evaluations, and indwelling medical device evaluations.includes:
- Polysulfone reactor body with polycarbonate lid/silicone gaskets
- glass slide coupons (1 bx)
- slide removal pick
- bacterial vents (4)
- glass flow break (4)
