The best digital mass flow controllers (MFCs) feature alarms and diagnostic tools to give you more complete insight into the quality and efficiency of your biopharma processes.
This infographic shows you how to use those tools to achieve better control over bioprocessing performance and yield, so you can focus on protecting and enhancing people’s lives.
Industry-leading digital MFCs track the total amount of process gases delivered to a bioreactor during a bioprocessing run. They also generate alarms if total gas delivery exceeds preset levels.
MFC generates alert (and triggers blinking light on device) to notify bioprocessing management system that device is scheduled for service or recalibration.
Digital MFCs automatically adjust to maintain proper flow rates. If the MFC overadjusts and exceeds established setpoints, there’s a strong risk that the bioreactor isn’t receiving proper amounts of gases like O2 and CO2—throwing off pH and dissolved O2 and harming production of the targeted biologic.
Bioreactor MFCs have specific flow rate “recipes” for each new biologic being processed. Preset alarms will trigger to alert operators if upper and/or lower thresholds have been crossed or there’s no flow at all.
MFCs record and monitor the temperature of the gas the MFC controls. The MFC can monitor fluctuations in gas temperature that could negatively impact bioprocessing repeatability.
