The Lab Owl® and Fina Biosolutions Case Study
Fina Biosolutions works to develop affordable vaccines for low-income countries.
FinaBio was struggling to achieve consistent results with their existing fermenter control system. The system was unreliable and frequently unavailable for use due to inconsistent and expensive servicing. FinaBio had the vendor update the software, which then resulted in a complete system shut down.
With an important vaccine project and partnership with a major global health foundation, FinaBio turned to Lab Owl®, who not only provided them with a superior system, but exceeded expectations with “outstanding service, support and follow-up” throughout the entire process.
What Fina Bio is Saying
Two Major Lab Owl® Features
that improved Fina Bio’s process…
Overlapping the contribution of agitator speed, air flow and oxygen flow, in order to maintain the desired Dissolved Oxygen set point, reduced oscillation – helped to provide more consistent experiments.
Allows adjustment of the nutrient feed rate in step with the cell doubling rate. This allowed Fina’s scientists to setup the ramp overnight to make automatic set point adjustments – rather than needing to wake up at 3 or 4 am to change the set point manually!
