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.
- Increased flexibility by extra inputs and outputs
- Easy operation through touch screen interface and through web browsers
- Enhanced gas addition strategies via Mass Flow Controllers
- Reduce footprint by small size controller
- Replacement of ADI biocontrollers
The in-Control can be used to increase the capabilities of your bioreactor system with a minimal investment and no downtime for your process. The controller can be used for both cell culture and microbial cultures.
The in-Control is easy to operate via an intuitive human interface in combination with a color touchscreen. Due to its small size and simple operation, this system is very well suited to control single-use mixing systems where agitation, temperature, level, and pH need to be measured and/or controlled. The system is a drop-in-replacement for the older ADI 1010 Bio Controller and ADI 1030 Bio Controller.
Features & Specifications
Easily set, control and adapt your parameters, including pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, agitation, foam, and level to optimize the bioprocess. It has an USB connection for optional biomass or fluorophor pH and DO sensors and balances.
It is based on the same familiar Getinge Applikon control platform as the other controllers.
The in-Control comes with selectable autotuning adaptive PID control for accurate control when process conditions change during the culture.
The in-Control has an intuitive touch screen interface for easy operation. It has ethernet communication to SCADA and is applicable through various web browsers and devices, like Windows PC, Apple PC, Linux PC, iPhone, iPad, Android tablet, Android phone.

The Applikon in-Control is ideal for the following applications:
- Batch, Fed-Batch, Perfusion and Continuous cultivation
- Microbial and cell culture on lab-scale (up to 7 liter volume)
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.
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.
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 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.
