2017 - Automated Glucose Control for a Cell Culture Process
Manual bioreactor sampling and feeding can be a costly endeavor, both in terms of labor costs and the increased risk for contamination each time the sterile boundary is penetrated. Using the BioFlo® 320 bioprocess control station coupled with BioCommand® SCADA software from Eppendorf, many portions of a cell culture process can be automated, however, the need for human intervention for sample acquisition and analysis remains. To address this issue, we aim to integrate the BioFlo 320 with the Seg-Flow® 4800 autosampler from Flownamics®, Inc. and the Cedex® Bio HT metabolite analyzer from Roche Diagnostics, GmbH.

2016 - New Video from KNect365 BioProduction Congress Features Flownamics Seg-Flow Automated Sampling System
Flownamic’s Seg-Flow Automated Sampling System was highlighted in a video shot by KNect 365 at the recent Life Sciences BioProduction Congress which was held in Dublin, Ireland on October 19-20th, 2016. The video, which features David Price, Sales Manager at Broadley James LTD., outlines the features and benefits of the Seg-Flow system, along with other equipment manufactured and sold by Broadley James.
Broadley James LTD distributes and supports Flownamics Seg-Flow Automated Sampling Systems in the UK. Their staff is fully trained and qualified to provide customers in the UK with sales and service for all Seg-Flow products. Mr. Price recently attended Flownamics 3-day Seg-Flow Service training in Madison, WI.
2016 - The Cell Culture Dish News
In the article titled “Ask the Expert - Measuring IgG Titer: Need for Real-Time Results, Customization and High Comparability to HPLC,” Flownamics was mentioned in one of the question and answer sessions. The question in this article, “How does this monitoring impact sterility of the process?”, the Seg-Flow is used for an automated at-line sampling and analytics solution directly sampling to the Cedex Bio HT.

2015 - Flownamics is Expanding!
Flownamics has purchased a new building in Madison, Wisconsin in order to expand their operations. The new facility will be used primarily to increase their production capabilities. The clean room manufacturing space will more than triple in size The standard production area will grow to 4 times its current capacity. Undeveloped land allows for future expansion of almost double the current occupancy. At this time, Flownamics will maintain their offices and product development lab at their current facility.
