Award-Winning BioProTT™ FlowSU System

The BioProTT™ FlowSU System – recently named a winner of the Processing magazine 2023 Breakthrough Product Award – is an innovative flow-measurement solution for single-use biopharmaceutical applications. Suitable for both upstream and downstream processes, the ultrasonic flow meter consists of a reusable transmitter and a disposable flow sensor for integration into single-use tubing assemblies.

The approach of “Ready. Connect. Flow.” is driven by the ease of integration, smart connection to a host system or pump, and reliable, highly accurate flow-measurement capabilities that feature no obstructions within the flow path while being low maintenance. Integrated air and bubble detection ability adds a further level of safety to biopharma-production processes.

Please note: Not all products are available and approved in every country. Please contact your local distributor if you have any questions.

Application

In upstream processes such as buffer and media preparation or cell cultivation, the BioProTT™ FlowSU can provide feedback to a pump or dose feeding processes.

In downstream applications such as depth filtration, tangential flow filtration, in-line buffer formulation, or chromatography, the BioProTT™ FlowSU can be used to hygienically and precisely measure the flow. The flow meter can be easily integrated inline and be combined with different pump types such as the Quattroflow® Single Use Pumps. The integrated air and bubble detection adds safety to air-sensitive applications.
