Hamilton reacts to market’s needs
New sensor for single-use applications introduced in 2018
Hamilton Bonaduz AG celebrates a successful year 2018, after a great ACHEMA trade fair in early summer and an equally intense BrauBeviale in fall. With the new Single-Use sensor, the company introduced a complete solution for cell culture and fermentation to the market, just in time for the ACHEMA trade fair. Next to the available Single-Use pH sensor OneFerm, a disposable sensor for optical dissolved oxygen measurement was presented. The sensors are implemented into bags and reactors by the manufacturers of the Single-Use equipment and delivered gamma-sterilized afterwards. This means a minimum of preparation time as well as no time consuming cleaning validations for the users. OneFerm pH combines at the same time the precision and minimal drift of a glass pH sensor with the quick use of an optical pH sensor without increasing the contamination risk. The Single-Use sensors are available as an analog and an Arc version. Along the same line, Hamilton released a new ArcAir Software version, which allows the user to access all processes fast and easy with the app. Reading the barcodes printed on the pH buffers and conductivity standards labels, and documenting all settings and changes, is one of the innovations of the new ArcAir software. After a rotational break of the BrauBeviale in 2017, the reliable optical dissolved oxygen sensor VisiTrace DO and the portable dissolved oxygen device Beverly revived interest of the trade visitors. “We have been busy with the two trade fairs, several smaller events and our day-to-day business in 2018. After the interesting and promising discussions we’ve had, we are looking forward to 2019”, sums up Dr. Knut Georgy, Senior Market Segment Manager Process Analytics at Hamilton.
