Automatic sampling of reactor vessels requires careful fluid management to achieve cell-free sampling. In high density cultures or highly viscous media, this becomes even more important. A self-calibrating fluid control module can be added to sampling probes and automatic samplers that overcomes these challenges and provides consistent sample quality.
The Flownamics Seg-Mod 202 is a self-calibrating fluidic module for high cell density cultures.
Seg-Mod 202 mounts easily to the Flownamics FISP probes used with the very popular Seg-Flow line of automated samplers and uses ultrasonic sensors for increased accuracy and reliability.
The Seg-Mod calculates the fluidic pull on the probe to ensure accurate cell-free sampling. When it detects an increase in viscosity it will decrease flow rates to maintain sample quality.
The unit is completely scale-independent, and it’s been designed to work with vessels from any manufacturer at scales from lab through to full production.
