SCHOTT’s ViewPort® bioreactor interface and ViewCell™ flow cell with spectrometers.

ViewPort® and ViewCell™
optical sensor and spectrometer interfaces

The process analytical technology (PAT) components of SCHOTT enable sterile, safe and flexible use of optical sensors and spectrometers throughout bioprocessing. With hermetic optical windows, these revolutionary sensor interfaces allow continuous in-situ monitoring that boosts safety, efficiency, and yield.

Increased safety for production processes

The ViewPort® bioreactor interface and ViewCell™ flow cell allow accurate non-contact optical measurements and process optimization for upstream and downstream bioprocessing. By enabling stable, safe, and sterile measurements in-situ - directly in the production line - SCHOTT’s optical interfaces contribute to remove the need to draw physical samples for analysis.

Unlocking unmatched flexibility

By providing a sterile-safe interface for contactless integration of sensors, the ViewPort® bioreactor interface and ViewCell™ flow cell boost efficiency. With SCHOTT’s novel process analytical technology components, optical sensors and spectrometers can be changed without disrupting the production process, helping advance continuous processing and automated approaches.
