A laboratory glass fermentor is a piece of laboratory equipment used for fermenting microorganisms or biochemical reactions. It is typically made of glass and has a volume of around 1-50 liters.
The fermentor has a number of components, including a vessel to hold the fermentation mixture, a stirring mechanism to mix the mixture, a system for introducing and removing gases, and a way to control the temperature and pH of the mixture. Many fermentors also have a sampling port for taking samples of the fermentation mixture, as well as a port for adding nutrients or other substances. Fermentors are used in a variety of applications, including the production of pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and industrial chemicals.
