The Futura neotf single-use biomass sensor is designed for integration with Thermo Scientific single-use bioreactors to process fingerprinting for on-line monitoring and control of cell culture. According to the company, this sensor supports seamless scale-up with biologics and vaccine manufacturing. The company claims its Futura neotf single-use sensor can measure biomass on-line in a Thermo single-use bioreactor every four seconds. Utilizing process fingerprints from Futura neotf, the sensor was made to allow scientists to maintain critical process parameters and critical quality attributes of their biologics and vaccines from batch to batch and identify and prevent out-of-specification batches from occurring. Scientists can also use data from Futura neotf for control, such as determining cell harvest or virus infection times.
