mPath Lab Scale Bioreactor Control

The new mPath™ bioreactor control system

The new mPath™ bioreactor control system is an expandable control and data management system including both bioreactor control towers and an advanced supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software package. Designed with a strong focus on ease of use, the system includes usability features such as biocontainer hangers with integrated load cells and mobile interfaces to modernize and simplify workflow. Features support characterization, optimization and compliance with GMP regulations providing a strong compliment to the Pall range of lab scale single-use bioreactors. The mPath bioreactor control systems are available with the XRS 25 bioreactor, with further lab scale bioreactors launching through the end of the year.
