The Pioreactor can be used as an inline sensor for larger bioreactors, fermenters, and yeast starters too. All that's required is our inline sensor insert, and a single peristaltic pump with female luer lock ends. The pump will flow media through the Pioreactor continuously, and our sensors and software will report back to the user-interface. In this set-up, the same measurements can be made (cell density, fluorescence, etc.) as in the usual bioreactor set-up. 

It's recommend to place the ordering of flow bioreactor → peristaltic pump → Pioreactor → bioreactor (i.e. the pump pushes liquid into the Pioreactor, and not pulls liquid out).
