INCUBATOR + BIOSAFETY CABINET + CLEAN ROOM = QUANTUM SYSTEM
Within a small footprint of only 0.3 m2, the Quantum system can replace the need for the incubator, biosafety cabinet and clean room typically required for flask-based culture. In addition, it can reduce the need for these workstations during cell culture by providing a functionally closed system with temperature and gas control.
120 T-175 FLASKS = ONE BIOREACTOR
The 3-D commercial bioreactor used with the Quantum system contains about 11,500 hollow fibers, providing a 2.1 m2 cell culture surface area, which is equivalent to the surface area of 120 T-175 flasks. The bioreactor's compact design allows a substantial amount of surface area in a minimal amount of space. This effective use of lab space results in facility, storage and workflow savings.
40% REDUCTION IN COSTS, 70% REDUCTION IN LABOR
By consolidating workstations and using a sophisticated touch screen, it is now possible for a skilled operator to manage up to 10 Quantum systems at once. This improvement in workflow efficiency not only saves space but also has been shown to provide product benefits, including less media, larger cell yields, shorter processing times, a reduction in labor up to 70 percent and a reduction in cost up to 40 percent.
