Bioprocess Control – AMPTS III

The perfect tool for determining the biodegradability of materials, methane testing and oxygen uptake.

Market-leading analytical tool for anaerobic batch fermentation testing

The Automatic Methane Potential Test System (AMPTS®) is the market-leading analytical tool for anaerobic batch fermentation testing. Now on its third generation, AMPTS III is automated and fully integrated for easy access to sampling, analysis, recording and report generation. AMPTS III houses 18 glass reactors for tests in its standard form, or your can choose the slimmed down AMPTS III Light, which houses 9 glass reactors.


  • Web-based. User friendly web-based software running on an embedded server. No need for software installation on PC, tablet or smartphone
  • Remote access. AMPTS can be accessed remotely and locally from any device with a web browser
  • Automated. Automatic real-time pressure, temperature and moisture compensation
  • Calibration free
  • Multiplexing potential. Possibility of multiplexing allows for simultaneous batch analysis at different start-up times
  • Easy maintenance. Modular design means most parts can easily be exchanged
  • Local data storage. Data stored on the local instrument means no dependence on external computer
  • Easy processing. Data exported as a spreadsheet for further analysis with uniform time axis for easy data processing
  • High data storage capacity. 7200 l of gas per channel
  • Real-time measurements. Measure several gas types, including biogas, in real time
  • Gas composition estimates. Connect in series to get real time estimates of gas composition
  • Effective agitation. Proven strong, reliable, multifunctional agitation 
  • Outputs in various time intervals. Generates outputs ranging from a datapoint every minute to one every day

What is AMPTS

AMPTS is the analytical tool preferred by scientists and engineers for conducting anaerobic batch fermentation tests. The latest generation of AMPTS comes in two models (AMPTS III and AMPTS III Light) that house 18 or 9 test vials, respectively. AMPTS III automates and simplifies a wide range of testing, including biochemical methane potential (BMP) tests, biogas potential, anaerobic biodegradability studies, specific methanogenic activity (SMA) assays, and residual gas potential (RGP) analyses on digested slurry. With either AMPTS III model, sampling, analysis, recording and report generation are fully integrated to offer users a seamless testing experience.
