Piccolo controlling a simulated bioreaction

The Piccolo is a Peltier based chiller/heater designed for simple bench-top applications. This case study demonstrates the Piccolo’s ability to control a simulated bio-reaction in a Chemglass 3-liter bench-top bioreactor using a “CC-E” Immersion Heater to simulate the heat generated by a bio-reaction with the 2kW heater adjusted to 5% (100w) for one set of tests and then 3% (60w) for a second set of tests.

A set-point of 40°C was entered into the CC-E to keep the heater on continually.

The stability of the simulated bio-mass was demonstrated to be +/-0.05°C. The Case Study can be seen in full on our web site.
