    About This Project

    Bioreactors are used to produce everything from vaccines to lab-grown meat. However, traditional bioreactors are expensive, costing between $8,000 to $250,000, current bioreactor capacity is almost full and projected demand is high.

    Our novel approach looks to improve upon a smaller 3D-printed bioreactor to create a 100-liter bioreactor that costs $2,500. Our specific focus is to develop a unit to produce bacterial cellulose initially with the vision to expand to other organisms.
