Aber Instruments launched its new Futura neotf single-use biomass sensor for process fingerprinting for on-line monitoring and control of cell culture.

Aber Instruments launched its new Futura neotf single-use biomass sensor for process fingerprinting for on-line monitoring and control of cell culture. Formulated for integration with Thermo Fisher Scientific’s single-use bioreactors, the Futura neotf works to support scale-up for biologics and vaccine manufacturing.

Using capacitance measurement technology, the sensor measures biomass on-line every four seconds, is sample-less, enables walk-away analysis, and collects real-time data without removing samples from the bioreactor. When using the fingerprints from the sensor, scientists can maintain the critical process parameters and critical quality attributes of their biologics and vaccines from batch to batch while using data from the device for advanced control including, determining optimum cell harvest or virus infection times, improving product yield and quality, and reducing the cost of goods.
