To identify certain groups of organisms, metabolic processes and toxic end products, it is necessary to cultivate the microorganisms in the laboratory. This is done in the absence of oxygen in small pressurized containers (serum bottles) or on a large scale in technical bioreactors. 


A special method known as anaerobic technology is used for this type of cultivation. This requires not only special equipment and devices, but also practical experience in handling highly sensitive microorganisms.

  • Cultivation of extremophilic and anaerobic microorganisms

  • Anaerobic fermentation in bioreactors up to 300 L

  • High-pressure incubation up to 170 bar

  • Production of culture media

  • Growth optimization through
    media adaptations

  • Growth curves

  • Isolation and characterization of unknown microbes

  • Microscopy e.g. phase contrast and fluorescence microscopy

  • Live cell count determination
    (ATP determination)

Microbial Biodiversity 

Our gallery gives you a small insight into the diversity of extremophilic microorganisms. These include hydrogen-consuming microorganisms such as sulfate reducers (SRB), methanogenic archaea and homoacetogens.
