Abstract: Driven by the demands of the market and the manufacturing industry, disposable bioreactors have gained in importance in cell culture-based processes during the last 10 years. Today they are widely accepted in R&D and also in manufacturing where process simplicity, safety and flexibility have top priority. Although disposable bioreactors are mainly used for cell expansions, glycoprotein secretions and virus generations realised with mammalian and insect cell lines, there are several reports delineating their suitability for the cultivation of plant cell and tissue cultures. This review describes the current disposable bioreactor types suitable for growing plant cell suspensions and organ cultures (hairy roots, meristematic clusters, somatic embryos) at Litre-scale. Based on a definition of the term “disposable bioreactor”, a categorisation of the prevalent types for plant liquid cultures is presented. We describe the bioreactor regimes, working principles and bioengineering parameters of mechanically and pneumatically agitated bag bioreactors, which have advantages of process scalability and efficiency. Furthermore, results from the literature and data from our own research (obtained during production of undifferentiated bioactive cells, expressions of secondary metabolites and glycoproteins, and micropropagations of plant tissues) are discussed.
