Optimizing Lab Analyzer Communications: Analog Protocols Preserve Critical Quality Attributes to Data Loggers and Bioreactors

analog protocols preserve critical quality attributes to data loggers

Introduction In the bioprocessing industry, bioreactor controllers are often used to tightly control many parameters within a bioreactor process run. The measurements that are controlled are called Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) and include real-time pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), CO2, temperature, biomass and metabolites. Digital vs Analog Communication Protocols in Biotech Analyzers often have many different […]

Using AseptiQuik & Kleenpak Connectors with Aber Probes in Single-Use Bioreactors

using aseptiquik and kleenpak connectors with aber probes in single-use bioreactors

From traditional bioreactors to SUBs (Single-Use Bioreactors) Traditionally, bioreactors have been constructed from glass or stainless steel, and were designed to be reusable. However, in between batches, these vessels had to be carefully cleaned and sterilized prior to the next process being introduced. This cleaning process is labor-intensive and time-consuming. To reduce the costs and […]

Non-Contact Flow Meter FAQ

non-contact flow meter FAQ

Introduction to Non-Contact Flow Detection A non-contact flow meter utilizes ultrasonic technology to measure flow rate at critical points of various biotech processes. Ultrasonic technology enables non-contact detection of flow, independent of liquid composition (turbidity, charge, temperature etc.).  ProA Flow ultrasonic flow sensors clamp on to the outside of flexible or rigid tubing, send ultrasonic […]
