The probe operates on a transmittance principle using IR light to track total biomass. It is a tool to increase microbial fermentation yield by maximizing the use of nutrients, gases and other critical parameters. The system reduces the cost associated with 24-hour sampling and removes inconsistent off-line analysis. The BioPAT® Fundalux comes integrated into our BioPAT® DCU and automatic data conversion to optical density can be achieved with BioPAT® MFCS.
Automated Biomass Measurement Using BioPAT® ViaMass BioPAT®
ViaMass is a system for measuring viable biomass in cell culture processes. Unlike known reference methods, this system is completely integrated into single-use bioreactors. It determines the biomass directly in line, reducing the need for manual sampling. Integrated into the bioreactor’s DCU control system, BioPAT® ViaMass permits automatic monitoring and control of viable biomass.
- Reduces the need for manual sampling
- Real-time measurement of and feedback on viable biomass
- Ensures batch-to-batch consistency
- Eliminates operator influence that occurs in manual biomass measurements

The BioPAT® Xgas monitors and controls bioprocesses in real time. It is a combined oxygen-carbon dioxide sensor featuring automatic compensation of humidity and pressure. The range for oxygen is 1 - 50% and for carbon dioxide 0 - 10%, with ±3% accuracy on the reference value and a difference of less than ±0.2% on the reading. The sensor is non-invasive and can be conveniently integrated onto a new Sartorius Stedim bioreactor exhaust line or your current system.
