BioProTT™ flow measurement system
The BioProTT™ flow measurement system consists of a Clamp-On Transducer and various flow meter variants, which allow versatile applications ranging from single-use systems to automated processes utilizing flexible tubing, and processes that are sensitive to shearing effects and/or require sterility in the lines.

Advantages at a glance:
Improved process performance by maintaining accurate and reliable media delivery rates
Reduced process risks arising from poor pump performance by supporting the delivery
of accurate volumes to feeder tanks and reactors
Reduced equipment footprint by replacing weighing scales with flow meters
Automated bioprocesses with continuous real-time flow monitoring and recording
Clamp-On Tranducers in different sizes to fit a large number of tubing dimensions
Customer-specific calibration for tubing, temperature, and media
In addition, em-tec offers customer-specific solutions for integration of non-invasive flow measurement for your process or skid. For distribution in the US market, please see

Comprehensive Cell Culture Analyzer
BioProfile FLEX2
Nova Biomedical, in collaboration with Flownamics Corporation, is pleased to announce an online automation solution for cell culture sampling and comprehensive analysis for bench-scale bioreactor cultures. Nova’s BioProfile FLEX2 can now be paired with the Flownamics Seg-Flow Online Autosampler.

BioProfile FLEX2 provides comprehensive analysis of 16 key cell culture chemistries. The full panel of tests can be run in under four minutes with just 265 microliters of sample, and users can select manual sampling or two modes of batch sampling: 96-well plates or the built-in 24-position tray. The FLEX2’s maintenance-free sensor technology comprises two credit card-sized MicroSensor cards. FLEX2 reagent cartridges and MicroSensor cards incorporate RFID technology for simple, snap-in replacement with no additional user input.
The Seg-Flow technology allows for rapid and accurate sampling for up to eight vessels in combination with two independent feed control strategies per vessel. The collaboration between Flownamics and Nova Biomedical allows off-line and at-line data to seamlessly integrate into a multi-functional on-line process analytical technology (PAT) tool through the Seg-Flow system’s communication interface. This software simultaneously acquires all FLEX2 data and can export the data to any Open Platform Communications (OPC)-enabled supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) for enhanced process monitoring and control.

Assays for Faster, Simplified Gene Expression Analysis
MilliporeSigma's KiCqStart® Probe Assays are a set of unique, predesigned probe-based assays for faster and simplified gene expression analysis via reverse transcription quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). The new sequences are designed using sophisticated bioinformatics tools to overcome common qPCR shortcomings such as off-target amplification, and to comply with Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) guidelines.
KiCqStart® Probe Assays
KiCqStart Probe Assays eliminate the tedious, time-consuming process of manually constructing sequences, and offer convenience with key features including: sequences provided with delivery to facilitate easy publication; oligonucleotides provided in separate tubes to allow for concentration optimization; and lowest price per reaction among predesigned probe-based products.
