BIOFLEX™ SOFTWARE FOR PILOT BIOREACTORS
BIOFLEX™ Software intelligent interface, easily accessible for beginners and experienced users alike. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, Bioflex is simple to operate, limiting operator errors and reducing training needs.
BIO-FLEX™ is a bioprocess software designed for R&D, process development, optimization and scale up to industrialization.
Bioflex is high flexibility for a batch, fed-batch or a continuous culture with Advanced control strategies (pH STAT, DO STAT, Turbidostat, exponential, complex calculations), perfusion programs, offline data and profiles management, data batch records, data export to Excel and more.
This open-source Software allows to integrate, at any time, conventional and sophisticated online sensors such as Biomass Monitor, Gas analyzers, pCO2 probe, Glucose and Multi-assay analyzers and actuators (pumps, MFC or Rotameters, valves, etc.).
Bioflex software supports the latest Windows platforms and can be installed on a laptop, PC workstation, tablet or smartphone, enabling you to monitor and control your bioreactor at any time: in the laboratory, in the office or even at home.
Bioflex Software is able to manage and control up 12-24-36 Compact bioreactors online, accelerating the development of your bioprocesses.
Bioflex CFR21 part 11 compliance version for GMP applications is available.
