The Revolutionary BioTilt™ and the Evolution of Biocouplers™

Bioreactors have long been a staple in efficiently multiplying tissue culture plants, yet traditional models often present complexities and high costs, particularly challenging for medium-to-small-scale culturists and hobbyists.

This led us to develop the Biocoupler™—the market's simplest temporary immersion bioreactor.

Upon its launch, the Biocoupler™ was met with resounding success, aiding thousands of tissue culturists worldwide in overcoming scalability challenges.

Remarkably, it enabled the production of hundreds of plantlets from a small jar, drastically boosting business profitability.

We have even produced over 500 plants using one single Biocoupler™!

Pretty incredible, isn't it?

Now, why are we diving into the topic of Biocouplers™?

Understanding the success of the Biocoupler™ is crucial as it sheds light on the why we created the BioTilt™ in the first place, highlighting its functionality and problem-solving capabilities.

Read on to learn about their connection and how they complement each other.

What Is The Biocoupler™ and What Does It Do?


The Biocoupler™ simplifies the multiplication of plants.

Simply attach a mason jar on each side, add liquid media, and by tilting the jars a few times daily, your tissue culture operation is underway.

Our research confirms the Biocoupler™'s efficacy with various species, including orchids and Venus fly traps, though customers report success across a broader range of plants, including Philodendrons, Monstera, succulents, callus work, and even synthetic seed sprouting!

Here is a video on our YouTube Channel that teaches you how to make liquid media for the BioCoupler™:

For over a year now, we've dedicated ourselves to extensive R&D efforts, diligently testing the compatibility of Biocoupler™ with a wide range of plant species. The results have been consistently positive, showcasing its perfect fit for many in vitro applications.

While the Biocoupler™ solved the issue of: 

  • Multiplication
  • Space problems due to traditional bulky bioreactors
  • Operational complexity

The product had one limitation: Manual tilting of the jars to dip explant for a couple of seconds in the media to provide nutrition. 

This led our R&D team at Plant Cell Technology to develop a solution that automates the process and frees our culturists for their remaining essential tissue culture tasks: The BioTilt™
