Sartoflow® Smart - The Crossflow System for Process Development

Smart and Easy - Small Scale Benchtop System 

The Sartoflow® Smart is a modular and flexible small scale benchtop crossflow system optimized for ultrafiltration and diafiltration applications used in many downstream processes, such as purification of vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins. The system is suitable for use in laboratory environments for process development and clinical trials as well as for cGMP environments.

Excellent Flexibility

Ideal for membrane surface areas 
from 50 cm2 to as much as 0.14 m2

Intuitive and User-Friendly

One operating design and predefined sequences for all Sartoflow® systems

The Highest Product Yields

Low shear 4-piston membrane pump

Sartoflow® Smart Overview

Intuitive Operation – Predefined Production Sequences

You can use predefined parameters to automatically run customized sequences for concentration, diafiltration (UF | DF), rinsing, filling, draining, flushing steps and tare functions. This allows intuitive and user-friendly operation.

DCU-4 touch screen

Process Sequences

The following production sequences are provided by the system


Used to concentrate the product to a predefined level and to diafilter the product subsequently - followed by concentration to a final level.


Used to concentrate the product to a predefined final level.


Diafiltration of the product. At the end of this phase, the product is concentrated to a predefined volume.


Used to rinse the system by flushing the system with WFI, acidic or alkaline solutions.

Drain | harv

Used to drain or harvest the product from the system.


Used to fill the tank or bag with product.


Automatically zeros the load cell.


Automatically zeros all pressure sensors.

Just select and start the phases on the control panel, and the DCU-4 will then execute the steps automatically. Interactions or process end will be indicated by text messages.

Optional software

  • MFCS/Win Standard software package
  • Recipe Control (S88) software module
  • 21 CFR part 11 software module
  • BioPAT® MFCS | win OPC
