CGQ – The Cell Growth Quantifier

The Cell Growth Quantifier (CGQ) offers non-invasive online monitoring of biomass in shake flasks. Our patented technology allows you to follow the growth of your cultures in real time by measuring the biomass non-invasively through the wall of the shake flask.


This enables you to generate profound bioprocess understanding and maximize the success of your shake flask fermentations.

  • Dr. Hanna Tegel,

    “Thanks to the CGQ and the experts from aquila biolabs we have ultimately developed a profound understanding of our bioprocesses .”

    Dr. Hanna Tegel, Group Leader at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) Stockholm
  • Prof. Dr. ir. Eveline Peeters,

    “The CGQ has enabled us to obtain accurate information on the growth kinetics of hyperthermophilic archaea and has solved the problem of manually generating data for prolonged periods of time and of dealing with evaporation effects due to the high temperature.”

    Prof. Dr. ir. Eveline Peeters, Group Leader at Vrije Universiteit Brussel
  • Martin Böhne,

    “Thanks to the CGQ we were able to save a lot of time for our manual OD measurements, could run our growth experiments unattended over night and generated growth curves with high precision and data density.”
