The BioProfile FLEX 2 from Nova Biomedical is a cell-culture chemistry analyzer that allows for automated cell-culture analysis for small-volume culture systems.

The BioProfile FLEX 2 from Nova Biomedical is a cell-culture chemistry analyzer that allows for automated cell-culture analysis for small-volume culture systems. The system incorporates Nova’s MicroSensor Card technology, which minimizes sensor maintenance. The FLEX 2 provides analysis of 16-cell culture chemistries including Gluc, Lac, Gln, Glu, NH4+, Na+, K+, Ca++, pH, pCO2, pO2, osmolality by freezing point depression, and total and viable cell density and viability by trypan blue dye exclusion method. The full panel of tests can be run in under four minutes with 265 microliters of sample, and users can select from manual sampling or two modes for batch sampling: 96-well plates or the built-in 24-position tray. Designed for small volume, early-stage cell culture development through GMP manufacturing, BioProfile FLEX 2 provides 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, OPC connectivity, full networking functionality, and support with all validation needs.
