Masterflex in buffer media preparation

Pumps, fluid path components, mixing equipment, filtration and process monitoring are all important pieces of a complete buffer preparation system.

Buffer solutions are essential to effective harvesting and purification. Maintaining buffer purity while providing accurate volumes is critical for effective production.

Media prep workflow

Masterflex in cell culture transfer applications

Peristaltic pumps, with sterilized tubing and connectors, are ideal methods to protect the purity of your culture when transferring between production vessels.

The cell culture is the primary production environment for biopharmaceutical products. During pilot and scale-up operations, maintaining optimal conditions for cell growth through gentle treatment of the culture medium is important to ensure maximum yield of final product.
