Raman spectroscopy is a recognized PAT (Process Analytical Tool) that has been seen as a central spectroscopic tool used in bio processing. It plays a pivotal role in the monitoring of fermentations, particularly their optimization within the PAT framework and harnesses biological processes for the development of drug therapies, providing treatments that range from small molecule antibiotics to large recombinant proteins.

Despite the significant growth of Raman spectroscopy in bio processing, users still face many challenges. Among these is the need to collect and consolidate data from differing sources to build models at scale.

Thanks to our collaborators at Sartorius, the game has changed. BioPAT® Spectro embraces Quality by Design (QbD) principles and unlocks the potential of Raman spectroscopy. BioPAT® Spectro is compatible with Tornado’s HyperFlux PRO Plus Raman analyzer. Consisting of a multi-use flow cell integrated into the ambr® analysis module, BioPAT® Spectro in ambr® has been successfully demonstrated by major pharmaceutical companies.


BioPAT® Spectro

Tornado HyperFlux™ Raman Bioprocess Solution for High-Throughput Screening and Single-use Bioreactors

Full Integration with Sartorius Ambr® and STR® Platforms

Tornado’s HyperFlux™ PRO Plus and SpectroPort Raman probe integrate seamlessly into the Sartorius Ambr® 15 and Ambr® 250 Analysis Modules for quick and simple sampling without the need for pre-sterilization. The PRO Plus Raman Analyzer measures key process parameters and other metabolic species, making it the ideal solution for monitoring bioprocesses and cell cultures.
