Cedex Bio® Bioanalyzer

The Cedex Bio® Analyzer is a multi-analyzer for monitoring bioprocesses and fermentation<s>s</s>. The wide range of measurable parameters allows the user of the Cedex Bio® to monitor the production as well as to develop and optimize growth conditions for mammalian, bacterial and yeast culture systems. The analysis of substrates, metabolites and products will be measured by photometric method. With its capacity of up to 8 samples, which can be continuously loaded during operation, and up to 13 freely selectable assays per reagent disk, the Cedex Bio® is recommended for low sample throughput. 

Prioritizing the samples enables fast and reliable results for quick decisions during ongoing processes. The Cedex Bio® can be expanded to up to 8 reagent disks and also offers a high degree of comparability of the results within different devices of the Cedex family. A comprehensive testing panel covers common assays. In addition, there are special parameters e.g. LDH, IgG, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, GlutaMax and Total Protein available. Cedex Bio® Analyzer can be used in GMP-validated biopharmaceutical production processes and is compliant to GMP regulations, such as 21 CFR part 11.

Are you interested in automating the data handling of your Cedex instrument? Then have a look at Sm@rtLine Data Cockpit (SDC) from our partner AGU. SDC is a middleware for central data handling in production, development and research and enables the connection of the Cedex instruments (and many more analyzers) to your LIMS system.
