Quantum is a functionally closed, perfusion-based, automated cell expansion system that features reporting, user authentication and power failure recovery features, providing more control over the cell culture process. Quantum has been proven effective in the consistent expansion of adherent cells, suspension cells, viral vectors and exosomes.
How it Works
Continuous media perfusion, temperature control, cell feeding and waste removal provide process control over the cell culture environment. Operators can monitor and adjust key cell culture process parameters via the touch screen. Cells are harvested in as little as 20 minutes.
Compact, Functionally Closed System
Maintain and customize temperature, gas control and media perfusion. The small 0.3-m2 footprint can save valuable clean room and incubator space when compared to flask-based cell expansion.
120 T-175 Flasks = One Bioreactor
The commercial bioreactor used with Quantum provides substantial surface area in minimal space. It contains about 11,500 hollow fibers with a cell culture surface area of 2.1 m2, equivalent to that of 120 T-175 flasks. This effective use of lab space results in facility, storage and workflow savings.
Direct Gas Connection: Hypoxic and Normoxic Conditions
A direct gas connection allows operators to control the cell culture environment, enabling any gas blend connection to Quantum. An internal investigation demonstrated that hypoxic and normoxic conditions make no significant difference in cell yield, viability, or phenotypic, morphological or differentiation potential.
