Duran® presented its new shake flasks with baffles at the ACHEMA 2009 in Frankfurt . These flasks ensure increased oxygen transfer rates compared to unbaffled shake flasks. This leads to significantly higher biomass production in anaerobic cultures. The determination of kLa values to quantify oxygen ingress where performed with support of PreSens’ new SFR Shake Flask Reader. The SFR measures oxygen and pH in up to 9 shake flasks of different sizes simultaneously. Here you will find further information on the SFR Shake Flask Reader.
