Faced with outdated biotech equipment, the customer needed to upgrade their bioreactors and gain modern data acquisition capabilities, providing them with the best tools available for new medicine discovery.
This project included retrofitting 40 Braun bioreactors with new Bradley James bioreactor equipment. The retrofit included a new DeltaV software package to control the bioreactors and provide integration with a PI data historian.
DeltaV software design, develop and integration testing
DeltaV control panel design
Bioreactor mechanical/electric design and build
Control system utilized foundation fieldbus and device net technologies
Startup support, including DeltaV platform installation and qualification software debug
With software development and testing delivered prior to site startup date, scientists are successfully using bioreactors and collecting valuable process data for drug profiles.
