Ultra compact pre-amplifier making it ideal for connection to micro bioreactors as low as 100mL working volume, or where there is restricted room on the headplate. Features include:

  • Main FUTURA housing is mounted away from bioreactor vessel
  • Ability to automatically detect and identify connected sensor
  • Sensor lifecycle information provided by intelligent management software system
  • Full audit trail
  • Easily integrated into most small bioreactors
  • Futura measures all conductivity ranges and cell types so there is no need to change the sensor between different fermentations
  • Sensors available in 12mm diameter (ideal for small bioreactors)
  • Designed using materials that conform to Food and Drug Association (FDA) requirements, making it the ideal instrument for the GMP environment
  • All sensors are built to withstand high pressure and repeated in-situ chemical, heat sterilisation and autoclaving
  • ABER FUTURA provides the optimum radio-frequency field for measuring live biomass in microbial fermentations and cell culture processes
  • Sensitivity of sensor to cells is distributed more evenly over a large volume compared to traditional sensors – this also reduces the size of the disturbance caused by any large gas bubbles in a vessel

Tri clamp probe and probe port adaptors are also available. Please contact us for details. The FUTURA is available in two configurations – standard and remote
