XCell ATF® technology can expand bioprocess facility capacity and throughput with cell densities up 300 x 106 VCD/mL. The newly launched XCell™ Lab Controller System accelerates development of robust intensified processes at volumes as low as 0.5L, reducing media costs per run and facilitating advancement to manufacturing. The benefits of key features such as a 0.5L single-use device, permeate pressure recording, a pump-based control logic loop, support for two devices per controller and a modern smartphone-like software interface will be discussed.
