The ez2-Control is there to simplify your bioprocess. Its multiple software innovations make it easy to control your bioreactor. The web-interface for the ez2-Control provides a clear overview of the parameters of your bioprocess, putting the attention right where it’s needed.
Easy to control your bioreactor
- Up to 6 Mass Flow Controllers
- Less maintenance due to brushless motor
- Powerful software features to simplify and optimize bioprocesses
Advanced user management enables you to create up to 21 users on 3 authorization levels. Back-ups, copies and predefined settings of configurations can simply be shared via USB. Extra flexibility is brought by additional analog and digital inputs / outputs.
The brushless motor requires virtually no maintenance, which saves you costs in the long term. It contains only one cable for the motor power and feedback and includes a motor controller. The ez2-Control comes with a motor support at the side of the device for easy operation.
Features & Specifications
Easily set, control and adapt your parameters, including pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, agitation, foam, and level to optimize the bioprocess. It has total gas flow control to reduce shear stress for cell cultivations.
It is based on the same familiar Getinge Applikon control platform as the other controllers.
Advanced control strategies
The ez2-Control comes with selectable autotuning adaptive PID control for accurate control when process conditions change during the culture.
It has extended liquid additions options via (up to) 4 variable speed pumps. And it comes with enhanced gas addition strategies via (up to) 6 mass flow controllers.
The built-in web server allows the ez2-Control to be operated by any computer with a web browser: Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari or Google Chrome. Wireless devices like iPad, iPhone or Android tablets or phones can also be used to operate an ez2-Control.
Via the built-in web server enhanced parallel processing is accessible which allows the user to control multiple bioreactors in parallel.
The remote desktop support gives you access whenever and where ever you want.

The Applikon ez2-Control is ideal for the following applications:
- Microbial and cell cultures
- Batch, Fed-Batch, Perfusion, and Continuous cultivation
- Autoclavable bioreactors up to 20 liter volume
- Single-use bioreactors
- Steam-in-place bioreactors
The Livit Flex is the intuitive controller that fits any research and development application. It can be configured as a single or dual control system for single-use and / or multi-use bioreactors. Only one network is needed to monitor and control the data of all your bioprocesses.
An easy-to-use, and cost-effective technology platform for the rapid handling and growth of large numbers of microbial strains, clonal libraries, mutant banks, and cell lines. This system enables a single person to grow and test thousands of strains simultaneously with a minimum of repetitive handlings.
The my-Control is ideal for small scale cultivations as this controller requires less bench space than other controllers. This advanced system can control single- and multi-use bioreactors from 50 mL (working volume) up to a total volume of 3 L for both cell culture and microbial cultures.
Applikon Motor Controller
The Motor Controller is a robust and user-friendly device that allows for easy and stable mixing. The Motor Controller can be supplied with 4 different types of brushless stirrer motors that can support mixing in vessels up to 130 L.
The in-Control is a process controller for laboratory scale bioreactors, offering high level control on a small footprint. This modular system allows you to create the most optimal set-up as you can add any extra inputs or outputs. You are in control.
The Applikon BioSep is a unique cell retention device for the process of constant feeding of fresh media and removal of spent media, while retaining a high number of viable cells. It uses high frequency resonant ultrasonic waves to separate cells and thereby automatically removes cell debris, which makes it the perfect solution for continuous bioprocesses.
Applikon AppliFlex ST
Single-use bioreactors provide higher throughput thanks to easy setup and operation. Plus minimal operator handling reduces the ever-present risk of contamination. The Applikon AppliFlex ST has been designed to make your life in the lab easy.
The Applikon MiniBio is a true scale down of the classic laboratory scale bioreactor. It has the same flexibility, which means that the Applikon MiniBio can be customized to fit the demands of any process. The small volume reduces media costs and maximizes usage of bench space.
