Encapsulate your own microorganism cultures in a confined medium protected by a microfiltration membrane.
Get your SBP capsules research kit which includes 50 SBP capsules for exploring the capabilities of your own microorganism cultures.

The SBP capsules allow us to adapt and accomplish sufficient biomass of selected bacterial culture in a suspended form. The SBP capsules are coated with a semi-permeable membrane, enabling only dissolved molecules to traverse across the membrane, while keeping the microorganisms inside the capsule at favorable growth conditions. Microorganism cultures will grow inside a confined environment for a period of up to 2 months.

The SBP has found applications in many fields including wastewater treatment, fermentation, microorganism interactions and microbial ecology. BioCastle offers researchers a “ready to use” encapsulation method for the implementation of their own bacterial culture (Macro-capsule, 2.5 cm long).

A: The SBP capsules are composed of a microfiltration Cellulose Acetate membrane. The microfiltration membrane consists of 0.2 – 0.75 micron pore sizes.

A: The Capsules are intended for creating a physical barrier between the inner space and the outer surroundings with 0.2 – 0.75 micron microfiltration. Therefore, no microorganism can traffic through the membrane, only dissolved nutrients and proteins.

A: It is possible to inoculate the capsule with bacteria, yeasts, and several species of molds. Working with yeast and other fungi cultures, it is recommended starting with procedure A prior to procedure B.

A: Depending on the type of microorganism inoculated in the capsule and other incubation terms (shear forces, temperature, pH etc.). The capsules may be used for up to eight weeks, it is recommended to use an additional number of capsules for monitoring viability and functionality.
