Effective immediately, INFORS HT is solely responsible for the global distribution of aquila biolabs’ Cell Growth Quantifier (CGQ). The CGQ allows non-invasive online monitoring of biomass in shake flasks. The automatic measurements save time and also provide a profound understanding of the bioprocesses, ensuring sustainable success of shake flask experiments.

The CGQ determines the biomass concentration automatically, optically and non-invasively through the vessel wall using a patented sensor. Overall, the CGQ can generate detailed microbial growth kinetics in up to 16 shake flasks simultaneously and in real time.
The benefits are clear: time and cost saving, an undisturbed bioprocess and better reproducibility of results. Thanks to the CGQ, bioprocesses can be developed and optimized based on detailed growth curves. Hence, the sustainable success of shake flask experiments can be significantly increased.
