Contactless pH Measurements in Perfusion Systems
Single-Use pH Flow-Through Cell FTC-SU-HP5-US
The FTC-SU-HP5-US consists of a miniaturized optical pH sensor on a color coded stick, which is attached to a single-use T-cell. The sensor stick can be mounted on flow-through cells of different size and shape, according to requirements. The sensor inside the FTC is connected to the pH meter via polymer optical fiber and allows contactless measurements in perfusion systems. The FTC-SU-HP5-US is made of polycarbonate.
- Single-use flow-through cell
- Precise online monitoring of pH in perfusion systems
- Different sizes and shapes for various flow rates
- Easy connection to external tubing
- Customized connectors are available, e. g. CPC
pH Monitoring in Liver Cell Bioreactor
An important aspect of efficient liver cell bioreactors is the automated regulation of physio-chemical culture parameters. A non-invasive pH regulation device for a perfusion bioreactor has been developed. The high performance of the system is based on one of our chemical optical flow-through cells for pH detection and its combination with precision mass-flow controllers for gas. The new controller allows long time stable and contamination free online pH regulation in complex bioreactor systems - an important technical contribution for future clinical applications.

Online Measurement in Perfusion Systems
Beta-irradiated and pre-calibrated pH and DO flow-through sensors can be integrated into perfusion systems. This allows easy control of process parameters in perfusion reactors. Typically Luer connectors are used, though different sizes for larger or smaller flow rates are available.
