In biopharmaceutical and chemical industries, sampling is vital to develop, maintain, and improve processes. This needs to be done in aseptic conditions. The risk of contaminating either the test sample or the reactor can be eliminated by the use of a dedicated sampling probe designed to operate with the range of sample ports in use across all scales of production.
The Flownamics FISP F-Series is a dedicated sampling probe capable of withdrawing sterile, cell-free samples from fermenters and bioreactors with 12mm or 19mm top ports, from lab scale up to production scale.
FISP is a sterilizable 316 stainless steel carrier which is surrounded by a tubular, micro-porous membrane.
FISP has been designed to withstand the temperatures, pressures, and chemicals found in fermentation environments, and is perfect for use with aerobic or anaerobic bacteria, yeast, fungi, algae, insect, and mammalian cell cultures. It’s design provides risk-free sampling thanks to a sterile barrier provided by its 0.2 micron filter, and offers the flexibility of being able to be used for submerged feeding or adding sterile media.
Compatible with Clean in Place (CIP), Sterilize in Place (SIP), and autoclaving, the FISP is easy to maintain and intuitive to use, with no specialist training required.
For use in fully automated test scenarios, the FISP has been developed to work seamlessly with the Flownamics Seg-Flow range of automated samplers.
