The TRACE C2 Control is a dual-channel, on-line analyser for the monitoring and control of glucose and lactate concentrations in biopharmaceutical applications.
A 4-channel version, the MultiTRACE, is also available. Connection to the majority of bioreactor systems is achieved by using the patented dialysis or filtration probes (for traditional autoclavable or steam-in-place bioreactors), or the single-use dialysis probe for disposables. The device uses integrated PID to control a feed pump, so there is no need for a separate process control / SCADA system. For large bioreactors requiring higher feed flow-rates, and external pump (with suitable communications) can be driven by the analyser.
