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.
Color your Lab
- Easy operation through web browsers
- Expandable control system with optional extra inputs and outputs
- Enhanced parallel processing by allowing up to 8 my-Controllers in one human interface
The selectable colored band on the unit allows the system to be personalized and to fit your laboratory. The advanced my-Control software makes it possible to switch from microbial to cell culture configuration in seconds. With its footprint of only 19 by 35 cm (W x D) it uses the minimal amount of bench space, allowing to set up as many as 5 on 1 m width of bench space.
Features & Specifications
The my-Control provides full control of all bioprocess parameters, including pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, RedOx, agitation, foam, and level. It has USB connections for optional balances, Biomass, Fluorophor pH and DO sensors.
It is based on the same familiar Getinge Applikon control platform as the other controllers.
Advanced control strategies
The my-Control comes with selectable autotuning adaptive PID control for accurate control when process conditions change during the culture.
It has extended liquid additions options tuned to small scale cultivation via up to 4 variable speed pumps at the front of the controller. And it comes with enhanced gas addition strategies via 4 mass flow controllers.
Easy operation through web
The built-in web server allows the my-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 a my-Control.
Via the built-in web server enhanced parallel processing is accessible which allows user to control multiple (up to 8) bioreactors in parallel.

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 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 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.
