A choice of models
Fit for your purpose: scalable single-use tangential flow filtration (TFF) systems
Agilitech single-use tangential flow filtration (TFF) systems provide the flexibility and agility to perform purification operations upon delivery. A uniquely flexible design offers options and possibilities for every facet of the skid to meet your current application needs, while future-proofing the system to easily and cost-effectively scale along with your process.
Our engineering experts collaborate with you to customize the system to your unique requirements—whether adding or removing inlets/outlets, analytics, filters, etc. The system provides unmatched flexibility of components: choose your preferred filter brand, single-use assembly, bag or bottle recirculation container and more; and it will be delivered with your preferred state-of-the-art automation and control system—whether that’s DeltaV, Rockwell Automation or another platform. The chromatography skid can run as a stand alone unit or integrated into an existing or new DCS/SCADA system. As always, the choice is yours.
When it comes to filters, single-use bags and other components—even the control system— the Agilitech tangential flow filtration (TFF) system is brand agnostic to give you unmatched options.
- Integrates virtually any brand hollow fiber and flat sheet style filters
- Custom single-use assembly accommodates Sartorius, Millipore, GE, Watersepor other preferred filter brand
- Choose bag or bottle recirculation containers
- Both recirculation vessel weight control and permeate flow control available
- Diafiltration mode available (with buffer feed)
Single-use technology ensures a safe and sterile process
- Fully sterilized single-use tubing sets, complete with integrated sensors, minimize risk of contamination
- Sterile-to-sterile connections for inlets/outlets reduce contamination risks
- Highest quality components; USP <88> Class VI certified single-piece tubing sets ensure sterility throughout use*
*Excludes flat sheet filter connections that are made at the time of use.
State-of-the-art automation and control—your way
We can deliver the tangential flow filtration (TFF) system with a state-of-the-art DeltaV control system. If you prefer Rockwell Automation, that’s no problem. Agilitech is a certified Rockwell System Integrator. Our seasoned engineers also have vast experience with Inductive Automation Ignition Software and Wonderware. An ISA-88 batch-compliant structure is used to create the building blocks of the automation to ensure that the ease of use and feel of the system are the same, regardless of the platform.
Easy-to-use, intuitive control panel
Our automation engineers have listened to end users and applied years of bioprocess experience to optimize the user interface of the TFF system control panel. We have identified the functions and data that operators need to access most often, and the user interface brings these functions and data to the top layer of the screen—no more endless clicking or digging to access data.
