Accurate, sterile sample collection is vital across a range of biopharmaceutical, chemical and industrial processes. In order to eliminate the risk of contaminating either the culture or the sample, specially designed probes developed to withstand fermentation environments can deliver accurate, cell-free samples for monitoring and development.
The Flownamics FISP D-Series is a dedicated sampling probe capable of withdrawing sterile, cell-free samples from fermenters and bioreactors with 25mm side ports, from lab scale up to production scale.
At the heart of FISP is a fully sterilizable carrier that’s encompassed by a specially designed micro-porous membrane. This has been designed to cope with the most extreme fermentation environments, and it’s ideal for use with both anaerobic and aerobic bacterial cultures, yeasts and fungi, and mammal and insect cells.
With a 0.2 micron filter, FISP’s sterile barrier means zero-risk samples can be taken. It’s robust design also means it can easily be used for the addition of media or feeding of cultures.
FISP is simple to use, and requires no additional operator training. It’s also simple to sterilize, and can be autoclaved.
As well as manual sampling processes, FISP is fully compatible with the Seg-Flow range – Flownamics’ automated sampling products.
