Sartorius Stedim Biotech has developed SARTOFLOW Alpha plus, a flexible modular benchtop crossflow filtration system, which provides semi-automatic micro-, ultra-, and diafiltration, and is especially suited for process development, clinical testing, and smaller production processes. Because of its standardized options, the system can be adapted to the changing production demands of downstream processing. The steaming-in-place module for thermal sterilization gives users the option to run all cross flow processes aseptically. The SARTOFLOW Alpha plus system is cGMP-compliant and self-draining. The system operates with either disposable bag technology or permanently installed tank. The cross-flow system is equipped with a DCU4 control module, which allows communication with the SCADA MFCS/WIN data logging and control software from Sartorius Stedim Biotech and makes integration with existing networks effortless.
