eLAB TFF Single-use

Leading laboratory filtration technology for downstream processes in single-use eBAG®

Overview

High-performance automatic tangential flow filtration system for superior results, an excellent choice for research, development and small production purification

Engineered to meet the rigorous demands of biotechnological downstream processes, the eLAB® TFF SU fully automatic systems stand out with a remarkable filtration performance and ensures unparalleled throughput and efficiency during continuous operation. Furthermore, the Single Use feature of the eLAB® TFF adds a layer of sterility and exceptional convenience, making it an ideal solution for applications where purity and contamination prevention are paramount. The equipment comprises two main modules:

The first is the filtration assembly, which includes a single-use tank with a volume ranging from 2 to 10 liters, housing the product to be filtered, and a filtration membrane with a surface area spanning from 0.1 to 0.7 m². The bag is held in place by a load cell and incorporates a conical bottom to minimize the risk of product losses. This plastic tank is firmly secured with a fixed support and includes the tangential filter for biomolecule purification. Both the filter and the support undergo pre-gamma irradiation to meet rigorous quality standards.

The equipment is seamlessly complemented by the TECNIC tower, equipped with a touchscreen interface, indrustrial PLC, and the eSCADA® software, facilitating equipment interconnection, data traceability, and comprehensive process control. The tower incorporates two peristaltic addition pumps, a USB port for streamlined data extraction, and a LED status indicator for monitoring the equipment’s operational state.

Elevate your bioprocessing capabilities with the precision, sterility, and innovation embodied in the eLAB® TFF system, essential for biotechnology laboratories seeking a straightforward and secure method to uphold sterility and prevent product contamination.

While other systems require extensive cleaning and sterilization, the eLAB® TFF SU is designed for single use, eliminating the need for complex cleaning processes. This significantly reduces the risk of cross-contamination and increases operational efficiency, especially in applications where sterility and purity are paramount.
Equipped with an advanced control system and automation capabilities, the eLAB® TFF SU allows for more accurate and automated management of filtration processes. This capability to automate complex tasks reduces human error and enhances overall process efficiency and reproducibility.
Unlike systems with less adjustable pumps, the eLAB® TFF SU incorporates an advanced four-piston diaphragm pump, allowing for precise flow control and steady recirculation, a crucial step for maintaining the integrity of sensitive samples and optimizing filtration efficiency.
The eLAB® TFF SU provides up to 0.7 m² of membrane surface area, enabling efficient filtration within a compact footprint, which makes it ideal for laboratories with limited space, facilitating installation and handling without compromising processing capacity. On the other hand, the integrated peristaltic pumps play a pivotal role in fluid transfer, ensuring that substances are moved efficiently and accurately within the system. The automation provided by these features means that the bioreactor can operate with minimal manual oversight. This not only ensures consistent and reliable results but also translates to significant labor savings. By reducing the need for constant monitoring and manual adjustments, researchers and technicians can focus on other critical tasks, leading to increased productivity and reduced labor costs. In essence, the eLAB® Advanced Bioreactor’s technical features are not just about enhancing performance; they’re also about streamlining operations and driving cost efficiencies.
The eLAB® TFF SU rapid setup and ease of integration into existing bioprocessing workflows is designed to be quickly assembled and operational, minimizing downtime and accelerating the transition from setup to actual processing. Its compatibility with various laboratory setups and the simplicity of its connections makes it a user-friendly choice for laboratories looking to streamline their bioprocessing activities. With real-time data visualization, trend analysis, and customizable settings, users can make informed decisions and fine-tune parameters with precision. The eR&ID software focuses on recipe management, ensuring that each step of the bioprocess is executed as per the predefined protocols. In contrast, eADVANCED offers advanced monitoring capabilities, allowing users to keep a close eye on critical parameters and make adjustments on-the-fly. The synergy of these software solutions ensures that the bioprocess runs smoothly, minimizing the potential for errors that can disrupt the workflow. By reducing the likelihood of mistakes and the associated downtimes, the bioreactor ensures consistent output and maximizes productivity. Furthermore, the efficiency brought about by these software platforms means that there’s less wastage of resources and reduced manual intervention, leading to significant operational cost savings. In a nutshell, the integration of eR&ID and eADVANCED software transforms the eLAB® Advanced Bioreactor into a smart, self-sufficient system that delivers both performance and cost-effectiveness.
