Fermenters are reaction vessels (bioreactors) that promote the process of fermentation - the conversion of carbohydrates into gas, acid or alcohol. More generally, the term can refer to any extensive microbial process. Typically, microbes are suspended in a growth medium. The process may be aerobic, in which case air or other gas must be added to the mixture, or
anaerobic, in which case the carbohydrate is generally just stirred. Contact the following suppliers to source fermenters for pharmaceutical applications.
