Smart Control for Bench Top to Pilot and Production plants

  • The control software is compatible with main operating platforms such as
    Windows, MC, Linux;
  • The user interface consists of a monitor equipped with touch-screen, substituting the keyboard in all its functions;
  • The monitor is usually placed in the high part of the control module, but it
    can also be positioned in a remote position;
  • Acquisition of data in real time and conversion of the signals from sensors applied to the process into values expressed in the specific units of measure of each variable;
  • Continuous graphic representation of the values, free choice of the variables represented and of the related scales;
  • Control of choosing the control method (Maintenance, Program cascade, Off) and the values of the control parameters;
  • Attribution to the variables of maximum and minimum values to act as alarm thresholds;
  • Automatic sterilization of the fermenter with a wide range of choice of phase
    temperature and durations;
  • Connection through Ethernet with other bioreactors, allied equipment and supervisory computer.

Downstream equipment

Best filtration membranes available on the market, in terms of materials, geometric configuration and operative parameters, for:

  • Concentration with the best efficiency
  • Avoiding problem of gel layer
  • Increasing the efficiency in Diafiltration

Different forms of filtration

Method Pore size Retained
Microfiltration 100nm to 10 m Cells, cell debris
Ultrafiltration 10 to 100nm Fine particles, viruses, large proteins
Nanofiltration 1 to 10 nm Proteins purification, virus clearance
Reverse osmosis 0.1 to 1 nm Water purification
