Roller Equipment Meets Demanding Biopharmaceutical Needs
WHEATON’s R2P 2.0—a touchscreen, Ethernet network-capable roller culture device for the vaccine and biologics industry—is a revolution in adherent cell culture equipment. Designed for robustness and ease-of-use, units are fully configurable to meet demanding biopharmaceutical process requirements. The device automatically controls and monitors the rotational speed of the cell culture bottles with a service-free, high precision motor. A single apparatus can rotate up to 176 bottles. The settings are controlled through a color touchscreen that displays all prominent process parameters and system alarms. Parameters are accessed through readily recognizable icons and changed through intuitive configuration screens. The units are compatible with existing networked proprietary roller apparatus for “plug and play” backward compatibility. The device also has a USB-downloadable internal event log file to record any parameter changes or alarm notifications. Available options include temperature sensors and automatic battery backup to ensure an optimal environment for cell growth. Custom configurations are available to accommodate scientists with specific requirements.
