Modular, plug-and-play hardware with diaphragm pump 

The KrosFlo® FS Systems achieve an unparalleled combination of configurability and automation and compliance for flat sheet TFF processes.  All components, either directly or indirectly, connect to the main KrosFlo® FS diaphragm pump, which then communicates with the KF Comm 2 software for control and monitoring.

  • Configure a minimal number of components for simple applications such as concentration (C) or diafiltration (D)​
  • Plug-and-play additional components for fractionation (F) and multi-step processes (i.e. CDC/D/C)​

Click on the tabs below to explore different combinations of concentration and diafiltration configurations using the KrosFlo® FS TFF System.

C = Concentration D = Diafiltration F = Feed

Add a scale and auxiliary pump to access diafiltration applications

C = Concentration D = Diafiltration F = Feed

Build process understanding with increased sensors

C = Concentration D = Diafiltration F = Feed


Configurable ProConnex® Flow Paths

Enhanced through an engineering design process, ProConnex® Flow Paths are customized, configurable and complete assemblies for tangential flow filtration.  Designed for use with hollow fiber and/or flat sheet TFF systems, the assemblies are sterile, fit for upstream or downstream processing and manufactured in compliance with ISO guidelines in an ISO 7 clean room.

ProConnex® Filter Assemblies


Transfer bi-directional data through
proprietary board

An advanced microprocessor-based controller is integrated into the main KrosFlo® FS System pumps, enabling plug-and-play hardware component behavior. Bi-directional communication is established between the KF Comm 2 software and hardware components, such as the Automatic Back Pressure Control Valve, scales, auxiliary pumps and the Konduit device.


Menu-driven Software for Optimized TFF

KF Comm 2 Software, backward compatible with legacy KrosFlo® KR2i and KrosFlo® KMPi Systems, is conveniently installed on any computer using the Windows Operating System. The software is compatible with Chrome, Mozilla, Firefox and Microsoft Explorer browsers and is always current with automatic software and firmware updates. 

  • Proprietary software optimized for KrosFlo® TFF Systems
  • Validated for GMP Processes with optional 21 CFR Part 11 option
  • Intuitive workflow with 13 modes of operation



Automatic Back Pressure Control Valve

A Repligen-exclusive technology, the Automatic Back Pressure Control Valve adds transmembrane pressure (TMP) control to every TFF process, reducing operator hands-on-time and improving process reproducibility. 

  • Automatically adjust tubing pinch distance according to user-defined set-points
  • Maintain uniform TMP throughout process run, decreasing membrane fouling
  • Control permeate pressure and flow during microfiltration applications
  • Use with compatible tubing sizes 13, 14, 16, 25, HP15, 17, HP24, 18, HP35, 36, and HP36
  • Activate automatically using inlet, retentate, permeate or transmembrane pressures 

Monitor and evaluate conductivity, UV and temperature 

Konduit is an add-on module ready to use with the KrosFlo® KR2i and KMPi TFF Systems, with the ability to scale from 2mL to 500L process volumes.

Conductivity Range 0.1 to 100 mS/cm
Temperature Range0-70°
Pressure Range up to 75 psi (5 bar)
Dimensions(L x W x H): 7¾" x 4¾" x 4½"
Weight 1.6 kg


Scale effortlessly from Lab to Pilot Manufacturing

Transition seamlessly from small scale to larger scale processes. The KrosFlo® FS-15 handles volumes as small as 140 mL to 15 L. The KrosFlo® FS-500 is capable of larger volumes from 1.25 L to 500 L. These two KrosFlo® FS TFF Systems share common hardware architecture, software and pump technology.

  • Scale-up and scale-down with a single platform
  • Configurable across applications (C, D and CFC/D/C)
  • Operate 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software built on secure Microsoft® SQL Server ​

KrosFlo® FS TFF Systems

The fully integrated KrosFlo® FS TFF System consists of hardware, software and flow path components. Key hardware components include: a diaphragm pump, auxiliary pumps and an automatic back pressure valve.

The KF Comm 2 software features a multi-language interface for complete monitoring and control and an optional 21 CFR Part 11 environment. Add tubing and sanitize/sterilize your own flow path around a Spectrum® hollow fiber filter or build a closed and gamma-irradiated ProConnex® Flow Path from over 250 components.
