Nova Biomedical Launches BioProfile® FLEX2 On-Line Autosampler for Fully Automated Sampling, Analysis, and Feedback Control of up to 10 Bioreactors

Nova Biomedical


Waltham, MA – Nova Biomedical is pleased to announce the launch of the BioProfile FLEX2 On-Line Autosampler (OLS), a modular system that connects as many as 10 bioreactors to one FLEX2 analyzer for up to 3 weeks of walkaway, automated sampling, analysis, and feedback control of key cell culture analytes. The FLEX2 measures up to 16 tests including pH, gases, metabolites, osmolality, cell density, and cell viability.

FLEX2 combines Nova’s MicroSensor Card™ chemistry technology with optical measurements and freezing point osmometry for an automated and comprehensive cell culture analyzer that eliminates chemistry sensor maintenance, increases analyzer speed, and reduces sample volume.

With the OLS, FLEX2 uses a small sample volume of 5.6 mL for the 16-test assay to allow frequent sampling for this detailed look at culture performance. Up to 24 samples per day for each of 10 bioreactors can be analyzed in as fast as six minutes, with proven comparability to manual sampling. The OLS provides automated sampling, analysis, and feedback control of 10 bioreactors in as fast as one hour for chemistry results, with only 20 minutes needed for setup.

The ability of OLS and FLEX2 to provide unaided capture of key cell culture attributes across 10 bioreactors saves hours of scientists’ time versus manual sampling and analysis, and eliminates after-hours cell culture monitoring. Scientists are able to focus on other critical development processes and PAT initiatives.

“We are excited to launch the next addition to the BioProfile FLEX2 platform with the On-Line Autosampler. FLEX2 OLS represents the latest in cell culture automation technology and further demonstrates Nova’s leadership and history of innovation,” said Matt McRae, sales product line manager at Nova.

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
