Title: A MODULAR BIO-PROCESSING UNIT AND A BIO-PROCESSING SYSTEM EMPLOYING PLURAL UNITS
Abstract:
Disclosed is a modular bio-processing unit (100) comprising: a housing (110) having one or more internal fluid paths (101), the housing having at least one inlet and at least one outlet (5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60,65,70), each in fluid communication with the fluid path or one or more of the fluid paths; one or more sensor elements (120,150,170,190) operatively associated with the or each path, said sensor(s) elements including elements of one or more of: a flow sensor, a flow rate sensor, a conductivity sensor, a pressure sensor, a pH sensor, and a light absorbance sensor such as a UV spectroscopic concentration sensor; one or more fluid flow inducing components (140) operatively associated with the or each fluid path; and plural valves (180) for preventing or reducing flow in the or each path, the housing, inlet(s), outlet(s), flow inducing component(s) and valve(s) being arranged to operate together as a bio-processing unit within or substantially within the housing.
