Invasive turbidity sensors for online biomass measurement

Optek Turbidity Sensors

The Optek-ASD sensors are mounted in a port (12 mm or 25 mm) on the top plate of the vessel. Using the NIR absorption the sensors provide data on the growth of microorganisms and cell cultures

Turbidity sensors for biomass measurement

Control based on results and real-time analysis

The eve® bioprocess platform software can seamlessly monitor growth kinetics in real time, document them, and compare them to those of earlier batches. These biomass data can be used for process control tasks in jobs such as generating feeding profiles or using growth curves as a basis for inducing protein product.

Ideal for a wide range of scientific applications

Directly comparing growth curves allows scientists to screen a variety of media and bacterial strains in detail, thereby optimizing bioprocess conditions and cell clones in very little time.

Make sense of your bioprocess

Creating a seamless record of biomass concentration allows you to detect bioprocess changes in real time.  This lets you identify limitations, inhibiting factors, and contamination a t an early stage. Reproducibility is increased due to a lower error rate when compared with manual biomass measurement.
