10/3/2019 INFORS HT launches new version of the Techfors pilot bioreactor

With the Techfors, INFORS HT is offering a bespoke solution for production-scale bioprocesses. The new pilot bioreactor differs from its predecessors not only in terms of looks. The user interface is consistently workflow-oriented and therefore makes operating the Techfors absolute child's play. With the aid of the eve® bioprocess software, complex bioprocesses can not only be controlled, monitored and analyzed in a GMP-regulated environment, but also documented.

As in the previous models, INFORS HT has implemented a modern design with clear lines. However, the new version of the pilot bioreactor has far much more to offer: "Besides the modern look with ergonomically arranged pumps and a tilting touch screen, we particularly focused on a consistently workflow-oriented user interface," explains Dr. Dirk Hebel, Lead Product Manager Bioreactors, INFORS HT.

The result is a real eye-catcher. Controlling the new Techfors pilot bioreactor using the touch screen user interface is child's play. The software is the same as that used in the smaller bioreactors. The advantage of this is that the user can get started right away – without the need for any familiarization. The interface and procedures are already familiar from the smaller bench-top and parallel bioreactors. The eve® bioprocess software is used not only to control, monitor, and analyze complex bioprocesses but also to document them in conformity with GMP.

The proven advantages of the Techfors are also offered by the new version: each pilot bioreactor is produced precisely according to the customer's requirements. Thanks to the modular design, sensors or analysis devices can be retrofitted at any time later on. The INFORS HT team is available as required to provide support during qualification and validation.
