TAP Biosystems announced a new analysis module for its ambr micro bioreactor system, providing accurate automated pH calibration for enhanced bioprocess control. The new analysis module will automate at-line pH measurement and calibration to produce consistent, scalable results by enabling more accurate feedback and pH control of cultures. It will provide fully automated at line pH calibration during culture set-up and pH re-calibration at any time during the run. This will save time by eliminating the need to manually check and alter culture pH from initial setup to culture harvest, as well as reduce the use of laboratory analysers to free them for utilization by other scientists. The analysis module is designed to use small culture samples, minimising the impact on the culture volume and enabling hands-free daily pH checks. For ease of use, the unit will come with a reagent pack including precise pH reference buffers for fully automated self-calibration and an ultra low volume pH sensor that can be easily changed by the user.
