Hydrodynamics inside wells of extra-high 24 square deepwell plates
Extra-high 24 square deepwell plates (well volume: 25 ml) are applied when culture volumes of 2.5 to 3.5 ml (as can be maximally used for regular 24 square deepwell plates) do not suffice.
With extra-high 24 square deepwell plates, culture volumes up till 8 ml can be used, preferably at 300 rpm on a shaker with a 50 mm amplitude.
Oxygen-transfer rates between 40 and 60 mmol O2 l-1 h-1 (corresponding to kLa values of 200-300 h-1) are readily attainable.
For the (slowed-down) high-speed videos below we used hitplates from HJ- Bioanalytik
Adviced (default) condtion 1:
25 mm shaker amplitude, 375 rpm
Adviced (default) condtion 2:
50 mm shaker amplitude, 300 rpm
Below: video database showing alternative shaking conditions (using E. coli cultures of 5 , 6, 7, or 8 ml)
25 mm / 300 rpm
50 mm / 225 rpm
25 mm / 325 rpm
50 mm / 250 rpm
25 mm / 350 rpm
50 mm / 275 rpm
The best way to contact us is to use the form below. However, you may also contact Wouter Duetz directly by e-mail. This e-mail address can be found on the "about us" page.
Optionally you may provide us with additional details about your project; culture type & duration, throughput and desired culture volumes.
We are happy to assist you. We generally reply within a single business day.
