Our Story

Fluorometrix Corp

1999-Fluorometrix

Like many good stories, ours began when one researcher pursued his fascination — to connect the environment of the cell with its metabolic behavior — and shared his research with experts and practitioners in the biotech industry. Fluorometrix Corp was formed by Drs. Rao and Joe Qualitz of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop fundamental patents on optical sensors for monitoring dissolved oxygen, pH, CO₂, and glucose.

Scientific Industries (SI)

2011-scientific-industries

Scientific Industries (SI) – creator of the ubiquitous Vortex-Genie® – acquires Fluorometrix and changes the company name to Scientific Bioprocessing Inc. (sbi). It was the vision of SI’s Chairman, Mr. Joe Cremonese, to combine SI’s expertise in creating optimal cell growth environments with the sbi optical sensor technology to make the lives of cell scientists and bioprocess engineers easier and more productive with a faster trajectory to critical research results.

aquila biolabs Founded

2014-aquila-biolabs

In 2014, Jens Bayer, Daniel Grünes, Konrad Herzog, and David Frank, a dynamic group of young entrepreneurs and biotechnologists co-founded aquila biolabs and launched the Cell Growth Quantifier (CGQ), which revolutionized biomass monitoring in countless laboratories.

aquila biolabs

2021-aquila-sbi

sbi and aquila biolabs join forces and introduce a new era of Digitally Simplified Bioprocessing. Through a combined network of sensors and actuators alongside a powerful software, researchers can gain actionable insights into their bioprocess when and where it matters most.

The DOTS Platform

today-dots-platform

We offer the DOTS Platform to bring bioreactor-like shake flasks into your laboratory. Advanced sensing and control options in shake flasks allow for simpler handling and lower costs than similar fermentation platforms. Start now and build a smarter shake flask - one parameter at a time.

"The CGQ provided accurate growth curves with very dense sampling intervals and gave us the opportunity to identify differences in growth behaviors."

- Prof. Dr. Lars Blank (RWTH Aachen)

SBI-Success-Table-1-1
"The backscatter data we gathered here with the CGQ system clearly shows a match with another growth characterisation parameter, in this case with the oxygen transfer rate (OTR)."

- Frédéric Lapierre (HS München)

SBI-Success-Table-3-1
"The CGQ BioR system provides precise growth curves with a very dense sampling interval, freeing my team for tasks with higher added value"

- Dipl. Ing. Andreas Hoffman (Technical University Dresden)

"With the LIS, I was able to recreate typical bioreactor processes, like fed-batch cultivations, in shake flasks."

- Dr. Victor Pozzobon (Chaire de Biotechnologie, CentraleSupélec)

"The CGQ BioR is well suited for monitoring biomass of cultivations with thermophilic organisms that require high temperatures and long fermentation times."
