JUPITER Single & Parallel Fermenter & Bioreactor


Jupiter: Parallel control of up to 24 independent fermentations/cultivations, simultaneously!


The JUPITER platform from SOLARIS is a highly versatile and customisable fermenter/bioreactor. With several vessel sizes and designs available, anywhere from 2 to 10 L total volume, as well as multiple aspect ratios and thermoregulation designs.

One of the key benefits of this system is its scalability. With the Jupiter, you can keep adding more units, and still automatically manage up to 24, with the same controller.

Built with high quality components, this fermenter is available in two versions: jacketed (fully removable and cleanable) or single wall, with heating blanket and cooling finger (Jupiter SW).

JUPITER is fitted with a Process Control System based on a web-based (Linux) software Leonardo 3.0 and Siemens S7 1200 PLC. The HMI control panel (interface) is made through a very user-friendly PC 24” touch screen.

The system is designed for aerobic and anaerobic cultivations/ fermentations, closed aseptic operations. The control is based on a SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) control system.


Parallel Means Smarter & Faster

The Leonardo 3.0 Software is intuitive & user-friendly. This smart controller was designed to provide a high level of automated management of the fermentation/ cultivation processes: batch, fed batch or continuous processes.

This software can be used for process development, which saves you time (and money) by taking a parallel fermentation approach. With the JUPITER you can carry out up to 24 independent fermentations/cultivations simultaneously & wirelessly!

Thanks to Modbus Digital Sensors, this system benefits from a robust communication protocol not susceptible to signal loss, as well as in-software sensor diagnostic information, parallel calibration/batch calibrations and more.

This means more mobility as users can access the JUPITER remotely, via PC, tablet or phone (with multi-level password protection) and be confident that connection to the running batch won’t be lost.
