SCHOTT ViewPort™ for Bioprocessing

These revolutionary process analytical technology (PAT) components act as sensor receptacles on bioreactors, enabling in-situ bioprocess monitoring through hermetically sealed optical windows without compromising the sterile boundary. This leads to reduced contamination risk and higher process yield.

PAT: for preventing contamination

In contrast to existing physical sampling methods that require opening the bioreactor to take samples out or insert probes, SCHOTT ViewPort™ receptacles enable safe and sterile in-situ process measurements through optical windows. This helps to minimize contamination risk.

Enabling maximized yield and process automation

SCHOTT ViewPort™ components allow easy and continuous real-time measuring of key process parameters via the optical interface. This enables usability of advanced process analytical technology and ‘real-time’ adaptation of processes, which leads to increased process yield.
