CLAIM

1. I claim the ornamental design for a moving bed bioreactor carrier, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the moving bed bioreactor carrier of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view of the moving bed bioreactor carrier of FIG. 1, the rear elevational view being a minor image of the front elevational view shown;

FIG. 3 is a left side view of the moving bed bioreactor carrier of FIG. 1, the right side view, top view and bottom views being identical to the left side view shown; and,

FIG. 4 is a perspective view of a second embodiment of the moving bed bioreactor carrier shown broken away with the specific length of the moving bed bioreactor carrier forming no part of the claimed design.
