The 30 L Thermo Scientific™ HyPerforma™ S.U.F., jacketed, AC Motor, with 2 position vent filter bracket, is designed to provide the users with enhanced functionality, ease of use, and efficiency for microbial fermentation. The HyPerforma S.U.F. system consists of a fermentor tank and Thermo Scientific™ HyPerforma™ S.U.F. BioProcess Container (BPC). The system has a 5:1 turndown ratio, which means it can run at a low 6 L working volume. The HyPerforma S.U.F. maintains traditional stirred-tank fermentation design principles, including specific height-to-diameter ratios (3:1), top-driven impeller location that deliver optimum cell viability, and performance and scalability from process development through production.

• The S.U.F. is a fully functional fermentor vessel including single-use sterile contact surfaces for mixing, venting, sparging and temperature sensing. Additional ports are included to allow choice of aseptic connections for filling, emptying and sampling.
• Unique proprietary mixing system enables conventional overhead mixing while maintaining sterility and integrity of the S.U.F. BPC.
• Minimized vessel footprint and reduced hold-up volumes.
• Simplified bag loading with a front access door.
• Tank includes baffles that enhance mixing.
• Side and bottom jacket for effective heat transfer.
• Cable management system offers greater organization for electrical cables, tubing and line sets.
• Dedicated adjustable tool holder keeps necessary tools available for convenience.
• BPC utilizes three Rushton-style impellers and sparger configuration with a proprietary exhaust management system.
• State-of-the-art foam sensor that helps to prevent exhaust filter failure.

Applications of the Thermo Scientific HyPerforma S.U.F. include:
• Proven for various microbial cultures of Pichia, Bacillus and others.
• Batch and fed-batch cultures.
