The Cell Growth Quantifier (CGQ) has recently been used by the workgroup of Prof. Dr. Eckhard Boles (University of Frankfurt) to monitor growth of S. cerevisiae. In this publication the yeast was genetically engineered to produce high yields of mandelic acid and 4-hydroxymandel acid which are commonly used e.g. in the cosmetic or food industry. […]
From the 19th to 21st of February 2018, the Ruhr-University will be hosting this year’s DGHM conference in Bochum. Again, aquila biolabs is one of the sponsors and we will show you the advantages of online biomass monitoring and feeding in shake flasks & bioreactors. The registration and additional information can be found here.
From the 19th to 21st of February 2018, Prof. Frank Eiden and his group “BioProzessTechnik” will be hosting this year’s BioProcessingDays at the Westfälische Hochschule in Recklinghausen. Again, aquila biolabs is one of the sponsors and we will also be offering a new workshop with the title “Online Biomass Monitoring and Automated Feeding in Shake Flasks […]
Through the release of CGQuant 7.4 several important features regarding improved software reliability have been introduced, including the migration to .NET 4.7, improvements in the USB communication as well as a CGQ Monitor application, which supervises proper CGQuant operation. Minor new features and bug-fixes as well as an updated CGQ user guide complete the release […]

The Liquid Injection System (LIS) is the first easy-to-use technology allowing for automated feeding of liquids in shake flasks. Learn more here and contact us if you are interested in a quote.
In this publication, the researchers developed a whole-cell system based on a yeast strain deficient in fructose uptake, in which GLUT5 transport activity is associated with cell growth in fructose-based media or assayed by fructose uptake in whole cells. The growth of shake flask cultures was measured using our Cell Growth Quantifier. Download PDF […]
With the release of CGQuant 7.3, you are provided with new data processing, comparison and export features. Merge replicate data into consensus data sets with automated curve alignment and statistical evaluation. Visualize confidence intervals and display the significance of observed data set differences. Finally export your data to .xlsx-files, to .png images or just create […]
The effects of TORC signal interference on lipogenesis in the oleaginous yeast Trichosporon oleaginosus In this study, the CGQ was used to determine the impact of rapamycin on Trichosporon oleaginosus growth kinetics, which was part of a first-time evaluation of rapamycin’s effects on TOR specific signaling pathways associated with lipogenesis in the T. oleaginosus fungus.
