SANTA CLARA, California, Sept. 16, 2015 / PRNewswire — Finesse Solutions, Inc., a leading manufacturer of measurement, single-use and automation solutions for life sciences process applications, announced a collaboration with Corning Life Sciences.
The collaboration pairs Corning’s novel CellCube® adherent culture system with the Finesse G3Lab Universal Controller. The CellCube System is designed to reliably distribute nutrients and oxygen with low differential gradients across all cells to more closely simulate in vivo conditions. This provides an ideal environment for attachment cell culture applications. The G3Lab Universal has been developed by Finesse as a versatile control and automation platform capable of supporting a wide range of industry leading bioreactors for both labscale and cGMP production settings.
The single-use flow path, manufactured by Corning, will combine CellCube holders with Finesse single-use TruFluor pH and DO flow-through sensors as well as utilize the Finesse 3L SmartVessel as an oxygenator for the system. This integrated approach will allow users to rapidly install a complete, pre-sterilized flowpath with integrated measurement.
“This collaboration highlights the flexibility of the Finesse Universal Control platform, fully leverages our upstream single-use sensor portfolios and aligns with our strategic goal of partnering with innovative solution providers in the cell therapy area,” added Dr. Mark Selker, CTO of Finesse Solutions.
The G3Lab Universal Controller with CellCube will be a key feature of the technology workshop at CellWorld2015 held September 21-22 in San Francisco, CA. For more information visit the event site: www.cellworld2015.com
