LEONARDO 3.0 user-friendly (PCS) software

Pilot and Industrial Systems

Solaris also offers a full range of pilot and Industrial bioreactors / fermenters from 30L to 20,000L and beyond

  • Solaris’ pilot and industrial scale fermenters and bioreactors have been designed to simplify scale-up related challenges.    
  • “Standard” systems can be tailored via a multitude of components and ancillary equipment options.
  • Systems are designed for in situ sterilization and can be automatically managed through the controlling software.  
  • Full cGMP validation and supporting documentation packages are available and specified per each application’s regulatory needs.
  • Systems are configurable for each application and organism and offer continuity from smaller scale platforms.

Solaris also specializes in fully customized systems, built to work within a broad range of applications.

  • Customized vessel designs, associated skids, impeller configurations, communication and connectivity protocols, etc. are available.

Customizable Sterilizable in Place Solutions

Solaris welcomes projects requiring customization for specific process requirements. Capabilities in scale up to 30,000 L + allows consistent optimization to vessel, agitation, aeration, etc. at various scales within process development.

Bioreactor Accessories

Solaris offers a complete range of accessories to best support your bioreactor / fermenter needs:

Metis Gas Analyzer

Online CO2 and O2 off-gas monitoring. The system is capable of up to 8 inputs or off-gas channels

Lauda Microcool benchtop chiller

Configured for single or multiple vessel usage enabling optimal vessel thermoregulation.

Hamilton Process Sensors utilizing ARC digital online sensor communication

Hamilton sensors have been digitally integrated to the Solaris PCS and Leonardo controlling software giving the user many benefits over traditional analog sensor outputs, such as:

  • More robust communication protocol not susceptible to noise.
  • Sensor diagnostic & health information available within controlling software.
  • Calibration time greatly reduced & simplified through parallel calibrations & batch calibrations - only possible with digital "smart" sensors.
  • Real time sensor warnings/errors which can help eliminate lost batches due to probes fouling mid-run.

Leda Sampling System

  • LEDA single use sterile sampling system enables up to 180 sterile samples per run.  
  • The needle free connector is designed to reduce the risk of contamination during sampling.

Mobile pH controller/dO2 measurement

Can be connected on different types of tanks, flasks, reactors, etc. 

  • PCS.
  • Touch screen HMI with controlling software.o  
  • 2 WM114 Peristaltic Pumps for base/acid addition.
  • Reusable & sterilizable Hamilton ARC pH sensor with digital communication.
  • Reusable & sterilizable optical Hamilton ARC DO2 sensor with digital communication.

Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) Systems

Kronos benchtop, standalone, fully automatic Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) system

  • Kronos offers up to 0.5 m2 total filtration area & utilizes state of the art components.
  • Fully configurable automation platform enabling customizable automatic process sequences.
  • Kronos can be configured to meet many process requirements applicable in a wide range of applications including batch and fed batch ultrafiltration, microfiltration and diafiltration processes.
  • Kronos is a perfect tool for product development and/or small-scale production.
  • The system presents an industrial design on a very compact benchtop platform. This allows a more accurate & continuous transition to scale-up systems, aiding in better understanding of TMP-Flux optimization.
  • The Galileo controlling software also offers a Process Development Module that automatically generates TMP vs. Flux curves from the sequencing of user defined TMP & feed flow rate set points, bringing further automation to optimization studies.

Tyan Pilot & Industrial Tangential Flow Filtration Systems

The Tytan Pilot & Industrial tangential flow filtration systems are tailored to each application by utilizing the optimal materials, flow path dimensions, controlling parameters, & components for that process.
