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.
KrosFlo® FS-15 compiles all the key features required for true walk-away automation and modernization of flat sheet processes from 140 mL up to 15 L, supporting membrane surface area from 0.1 - 0.3 m2. KrosFlo® FS-15 utilizes a Quattroflow™ 150 SU diaphragm pump delivering flow rates up to 3.0 liters per minute (LPM) and allowing for high pressure applications up to 4 bar.
KrosFlo® FS-500 enables true walk-away automation and modernization of flat sheet processes from 1.25 L up to 500 L, supporting membrane surface area from 0.5 -1.5 m2. KrosFlo® FS-500 centers around a Quattroflow™ QF1200 SU diaphragm pump which delivers flow rates up to 18 LPM and allows for high pressure applications up to 4 bar. The KrosFlo® FS-500 design also utilizes a base plate for optimum flow path length and component geometry, as well as a permeate side flow meter.
KrosFlo® FS Systems integrate up to 11 components with specifications to process volumes between 140 mL and 500 L. Each system integrates up to three pumps, one main diaphragm pump and two auxiliary peristaltic pumps. Sensors and analytics include up to two scales, flow meter and the Konduit which measures pH.
Walk-away multi-step automation with automated TMP based on 13 built-in process modes
Repligen-exclusive advanced microprocessor-based controller enables integrated plug-and-play modularity of all system components
Complete and up-to-date 21CFR Part 11 compliance and centralized control and monitoring through a single interface
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.
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.
KF Comm 2 Software provides a modern, graphically driven interface for process monitoring and control. Create new experiments based on 13 programmed modes, customize batch reports and plug-and-play hardware components. Add an optional 21 CFR Part 11 feature package for regulated environments.
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.
Innovative TangenX® single-cast technology produces a selective and uniform pore distribution that can enable selection of a higher molecular weight cut off (MWCO). For example, a 50 kD MWCO TangenX® membrane can often replace a conventional 30 kD MWCO membrane for monoclonal antibodies. A macroporous sub-structure below the selective layer can further increase flux.
Head-to-head comparisons demonstrate a flux increase of up to 30% compared to conventional TFF membranes. Leverage the TangenX® Membrane technology in either TangenX® PRO Reusable Cassettes, SIUS® Single-Use Cassettes and SIUS® Gamma Devices.
Take a flow path idea to an engineering drawing in minutes with an on-line digital configurator and expert consultation. ProConnex® Flow Paths are configurable from over 250 components, are assembled ISO 7 clean rooms and arrive gamma-irradiated.
Build a ProConnex® Flow Path around:
The standard KrosFlo® KR2i, KMPi, FS-15 and FS-500 can use time and weight/flow rate as process control set points. Add the Konduit and expand automated process control to include conductivity, UV and temperature for automated process controls. The Konduit integrates with the main pump and KF Comm 2 software with plug-and-play ease.
