  • Patent number: 6474259
    Abstract: Disclosed are an apparatus and methods for in vivo mass production of insecticidal nematodes, which the efficiency and volume of nematode production. In the method, nematodes are cultured within a natural insect host. The apparatus comprises at least one harvesting area, a water dispensing system that promotes harvest of nematodes from the host organisms, and a water collection and concentration system for nematode collection and storage. The harvesting area comprises reusable stackable perforated trays, which allow passage of dispensed water while retaining the nematode hosts. The perforations are sized to retain the host organisms and facilitate the passage of harvested nematodes carried within the dispensed water.

  • Patent number: 6432698
    Abstract: A disposable bioreactor for culturing microorganisms and cells is provided. The bioreactor is suitable for use by individuals not skilled in microbiology or aseptic technique. It is constructed of flexible or semi-flexible waterproof sheets to form a container designed to provided mixing and gas exchange to microorganisms cultured therein. Mixing and gas exchanged are achieved by bubbling gas through the culture, either from a single locus at the lowermost apex of a container having a wedge-shaped or rounded bottom, or from multiple loci across a flat-bottomed container. Also provided is a kit for culturing a selected microorganism, preferably an entomopathogenic nematode or other organism useful as a biopesticide.
