Nova Biomedical added a Sample Retain Collector (SRC) to its FLEX2 cell culture analyzer, which works to measure up to 16 tests including pH, gases, metabolites, osmolality, cell density, and cell viability.

Nova Biomedical added a Sample Retain Collector (SRC) to its FLEX2 cell culture analyzer, which works to measure up to 16 tests including pH, gases, metabolites, osmolality, cell density, and cell viability. Together, the cell culture analyzer and the SRC in combination with Nova’s online sampler can provide automated sampling and analysis of key cell culture tests from up to 10 bioreactors, saving time in comparison to manual sampling, analysis, sample storage, and after-hours cell culture monitoring.

The SRC functions by gathering cell culture samples from the FLEX2 online sampler and keeps them in a refrigerated environment to achieve regulatory requirements for long-term sample retains and to allow for additional offline testing. The SRC also permits user-selectable retained sample volumes from 200 uL to 50 mL at a storage temperature of 4˚C.
