BioPAT® Viamass single-use sensor (pack of 10)

®Viamass single-use (SU) sensors. The single-use (SU) application can be used in Biostat®STR and Biostat® RM.

Item no.:  BMS10


One of the most requested parameters in industrial cell cultivation is the monitoring of biomass. The knowledge of the biomass progress during a fermentation process gives deeper process knowledge and understanding. Offline methods like visual cell counting or semi-automated systems still dominated the biomass measurement in industrial cell cultivation. But these offline methods based on taking a representative sample can not monitor the process continously. The radio frequency (RF) impedance method for online in-situ detection of viable biomass has already become well established in biopharmaceutical apllications using traditional reusable fermenter equipment. But industrial cell cultivation tends more and more to single-use (SU) fermentation solutions. BioPAT® Viamass is the first standardized online biomass measurement solution for single-use fermenter systems, which is fully integrated into the standard fermenter control system and tailored to the single-use fermantation bags such as the Flexsafe® RM and Flexsafe STR®. Integrated into the bioreactor’s DCU and Biobrain® control system, BioPAT® Viamass permits automatic monitoring and control of viable biomass.

  • Reduces the need for manual sampling, lower risk of contamination due to lower sampling needs
  • Easy to use plug and play operation for rapid cell expansion
  • Real-time measurement of and feedback on viable biomass
  • Decreased labor and laboratory costs for offline analysis
  • Ensures batch-to-batch consistency
  • Improved data gathering
  • Eliminates operator influence that occurs in manual biomass measurements
