By mimicking the fish tail, LAMBDA created a new mixing disc, where high efficiency of stirring is provided without the destructive mechanical damaging and cutting of living cells.
The up and down movement of one or more "fish-tail" stirring discs provides gentle mixing both in horizontal and vertical direction. At the same time, it eliminates cutting edges and micro-eddies formed by all common impellers (used in bioreactors). As a consequence, the cell viability is increased.
Did you know, it took over 500 millions years for nature to develop a perfect fish-tail for energy transmission in the water?
Only LAMBDA uses this know-how of nature to produce a unique Bio-mimicking "Fish-tail" bioagitator...
Move it like a fish!
Nature has invented the right solution long before mankind appeared on earth!
The agitating discs of the 'fish-tail' bioagitator are elastic and have the typical form of fish tails.
In analogy to a fish tail, this shape of the stirring disc produces an efficient energy transfer in liquid (culture medium).
Have you ever seen a fish moving with a propeller instead of a tail?
