PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The lack of specialized equipment for manufacturing-scale bioprocesses can increase the labor and time required for normal flow filtration operations.  PendoTECH's recently launched Virus-Depth Filtration System enables complete process control with pre- programmed functions for different steps during the critical flow filtration process.  Equipped with a real-time monitor and built in alarms that provide regulation;  the system's use of PendoTECH's Single Use Pressure Sensors, tubing pinch valves, single use flow meter& non-invasive air detector permit a single use fluid path to increase the process efficiency.  There are strict pressure limits and additional control components to prevent high pressure situations from potentially jeopardizing a batch


While the fully automated pump control paired with the sensor & scale monitoring help re-direct the flow, the engineered turn-key stainless steel design features heavy duty casters for portability and a completely sealed front panel for convenience in clean environments where frequent wipe-downs are required.  Available with IQ/OQ validation templates to assist with custom validation.

  • Featuring four tabs for easy navigation, the Graphical Use Interface (GUI) is designed for use via touch-screen operation or with a mouse:
  • Setup View- sets alarms and creates a data file for process storage 
  • System View- displays current process values and change pump flow rate
  • Trends View- ability to trend process variables, ability to quickly auto-scale or manually scale the axes, and ability to export a  trend of interest either as data or a graphics file
  • Maintenance View- sets up pump based on tubing size, calibrate pH and conductivity, select units of measure, configure flow meter
