DASware analyze enables seamless integration of sampling and analytical laboratory devices to the bioreactor system. A broad and growing range of analyzers can be integrated, among them nutrient analyzers, cell counters, biomass monitors, HPLC and mass spectrometers. The OPC network protocol as well as the Modbus® protocol allows for interconnectivity between the bioreactor system and the analyzer, including the possibility of direct feedback from the bioreactor system according to online measured analytical data. This facilitates feedback control loops for nutrients, biomass or product concentrations. Online calculations as well as event- and data-driven decisions are supported. The bidirectional OPC communication, available for supporting devices enables sampling on demand and process-dependent analyzer panel selection.
