Sampling with bioPROBE: automatic, sterile and dead-volume-free

Mit dem vollautomatischen Probenahmesystem bioPROBE stellt die bbi-biotech GmbH ein Gerät vor, das schnell, totvolumenfrei und autark flüssige Proben aus einem Bioreaktor entnimmt und diese an ein beliebiges Analysegerät übergibt. Die Sterilität des ablaufenden Produktionsprozesses ist dabei zu keiner Zeit gefährdet.

Sampling around the clock– The connection between bioreactors and analytics

Das universale, vollautomatische Probenahmesystem bioPROBE für Flüssigproben aus Bioreaktoren der Firma bbi-biotech GmbH ermöglicht die sofortige und direkte Weitergabe von Proben an Analysegeräte oder Probensammler. Menschliches Eingreifen wird beim Vorgang der Probenahme und bei der anschließenden Analyse unnötig und verhindert eine Kontamination der Proben. Das System erlaubt damit Atline-Analysen, was zu einer Erhöhung der Produktivität des Bioprozesses beiträgt. Eine Rund-um-die-Uhr Probenahme wird möglich und eine daraus resultierende optimierte Steuerung reduziert die anfallenden Verbrauchskosten. Es eröffnen sich neue Möglichkeiten der Verfahrensentwicklung und Qualitätssicherung.
