Profile / Offering

abiotec – advanced bioprocess technologies – provides services and technical turn-key-solutions ensuring Quality and Efficiency of Bioprocesses.

Our activities comprise R&D services for process optimization as well as support for the topic of "Process Analytical Technologies" (PAT).

In this context abiotec develops, manufactures and distributes modular PAT-Master Systems for R&D environments, pilot- and production-facilities.
A long-term proven modular concept with units for sterile sampling / sample transport / sample preparation as well as the application of in-line sampling probes enables for easy integration of a broad spectrum of analytical devices from established manufacturers.

As a result essential biochemical and biological process variables are documented in a validated manner and become accessible to superior systems for strategies in the framework of "Quality by Design" (QbD) concepts.

... also due to the Gas Volume Monitor, we could see that at same amounts of gas production, other effects for eye formation in cheese are important as e.g. dust particles.
