Finesse Solutions Introduces The TruViu™ RDPDmini System
Finesse Solutions, LLC, San Jose, CA, a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for life sciences process applications, announced the release of TruViu™ RDPDmini, a vessel utility tower system for laboratory scale bioreactors, such as glass vessels (<10L) or single-use rockers. The RDPDmini package extends the TruViu™ family into low-cost, small footprint applications. TruViu™ RDPDmini consists of a compact utility tower, and/or an optional gas manifold. TruViu™ RDPDmini brings the benefits of industrial automation reliability and scalability in a very affordable package. It is compatible with both DeltaV™ and Intel microcontroller system platforms. It interfaces easily with Finesse TruBio™ software (either DeltaV or Windows CE) to deliver optimal bioprocess control.
TruViu™ RDPDmini delivers the competitive advantages of increased performance, efficiency and reliability, reduced operating costs and improved ease of use in a future-proof package. It is designed to provide a flexible yet plug-and-play configuration, in order to maximize ease-of-use, simplify installation, and provide scheduled maintenance.
TruViu™ PLSS minimizes lab bench space while maintaining hardware capability at 3 pumps, 4 MFCs, 2 analog control loops, 2 analog inputs, and transmitters for critical process parameters as pH, dissolved oxygen and temperature. TruViu™ RDPDmini utilizes state-of-the art transmitters that enable sensor calibration algorithms, and will be upgradable to TruFluor disposable sensor technology for single-use applications.
According to Finesse Solutions VP Hardware, Dr. Alfy Riddle, "Our end users first asked for low cost and minimal footprint bioreactor controller systems, so we developed the modular TruViu™ RDPD. Then they asked us to further reduce size and cost for R&D applications. We responded by creating the TruViu™ RDPDmini."
