Lab Owl’s® Bioreactor Control System Transforms Lab Performance at
Top Mid Atlantic Biotech Company

Complex lab challenges offer a golden product development opportunity

One of the top five biotech organizations in the Mid Atlantic region was experiencing challenges within its Process Cell Culture and Fermentation (PCC&F) development lab. In the lab were 80 bioreactors, utilized by 30 scientists across various areas of focus. The scientists recognized that the antiquated, manual processes in place were inefficient and cumbersome and asked leadership to explore a new approach. Automated Control Concepts, Inc. (ACC) had completed a highly successful process control project utilizing the Rockwell Automation platform a few years earlier for the biotech company’s pilot plant. As a result, ACC was referred to the PCC&F lab to come up with a new solution there as well. The PCC&F scientists soon partnered with ACC’s newly created Lab Owl® division, which spearheaded the project.

The Lab Owl-PCC&F lab partnership was highly successful. As a result of the collaboration, PCC&F scientists were empowered to run larger, more sophisticated experiments. The project also inspired the development of Lab Owl’s automated bioreactor control and information system that’s changing the game for development labs and growing biotech companies.

What PCC&F Scientists Are Saying

The Lab Owl system gives us a window into our processes that we never had before. It is far more flexible and intuitive for our scientists to work with...Lab Owl’s flexibility and ease of use saves us time and money and made our tech transfer easier than we could have imagined.

PCC&F Scientist

The recipe and macro features are a tremendous advantage of the Lab Owl system. It is not only easy for the scientists to set up their experiments, but it also allows lab technicians to easily and accurately configure the equipment prior to a run...eliminating possible human error and saving time and money in the process.

that Made PCC&F Scientist’s Jobs Easier…

The ability to link control loops together in virtually unlimited ways eliminated any boundaries that the scientists had previously encountered in developing their experiments. Lab Owl empowered the team to focus on the science–not on the tools.

Lab Owl integrates online data, manually entered data and data from off-line analyzers into one repository allowing the scientists to generate integrated reports and perform sophisticated analysis. Experiment results are centralized to allow for powerful querying and comparisons.
