The advantages of stirred tank bioreactors over shake flasks are as follows:

1. Stirred tank bioreactors are utilised for large-scale production of biotechnological products, unlike the shake flask method which is used for small-scale production of products. 

2. In stirred tank bioreactors, a small sample can be taken out for testing

3. Stirred tank bioreactors have foam breakers to control the foam

4. Stirred tank bioreactors have temperature and pH control systems
