Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), has launched Sartoflow Smart, a benchtop crossflow system for optimized ultra- and diafiltration applications.
It can be used in many downstream processes, such as purification of vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins. The system is suitable for flexible use in laboratory environments for process development and clinical trials as well as for cGMP environments. The system is equipped with a low shear 4-piston membrane pump that enables highest product yields to be achieved. In addition the pump provides a wide range of flow rates allowing to choose between membrane surface areas from 50 cm² to as 0.14 m². The crossflow system is supplied with an easy to use DCU-4 control unit, which, when combined with the company’s Biopat Scada, MFCS-4 software, provides data logging and export.
