Roller Bottle Systems
Done Differently

Quicker. Easier. Safer. Better.

Meet the revolutionary RC-40. Once its bottle packs are installed, everything from media exchange to harvesting can be done automatically in a self-contained environment. This saves time and labor costs while optimizing yields and virtually eliminating contamination.

Introducing the superior RC-40 (Mark 2)

The RC-40 has two 20-bottle position rotors, each fitted with a multichannel peristaltic pump. Pump volume, rotor direction (both clock and counter clock wise) and speed are controlled via a simple programmable CPU.

CONSISTENT PRESSURE APPLICATION

Pump

Homogeneous flling is achieved because colinear axis points allow for consistent pressure to be applied on each tube. This results in pump flling accuracy of +/-5%.

AUTOMATIC TILT SYSTEM

Frame + Rotors

Signifcant improvements to the traditional roller apparatus allows for automation of all tasks previously undertaken manually or by robotic processors

USER-FRIENDLY CONTROLS

HMI

Modern Siemens HMI KPP 400 Comfort controls include password protection, alarm histories, remote operation and multi-language capabilities

2 Months

Time to convert from labscale to RC-40 commercial manufacturing

Rc-40 Roller Bottle System

CLOSED AUTOMATED PROCESSING

Unlike robots or traditonal roller bottle handling systems, the RC-40 automates all stages of a rollter bottle process. For example the RC-40 can perform a media exchange of all 40 bottles (in one frame) simultaneously and without opening them.

One RC-40 system enables a single operator to complete a full roller bottle tissue culture protocol - seeding, media change, trypsinisation and harvest.

READY-ASSEMBLED

BOTTLE PACKS

The gamma-irradiated RC-40 Bottle Packs consist of 20 bottles ready-assembled with tubings, manifolds, and filters providing access to the cell culture area via a single aseptic connection. One Bottle Pack is required per rotor and once placed in the rotor, RC-40 Bottle Packs enable all further processing to be performed without additional bottle handling by the system operator. These unique Bottle Packs provide a closed production environment, virtually eliminating handling related contaminations.

MANUAL OR ROBOTIC SYSTEM OPERATON VS. RC-40 AUTOMATED SYSTEM

PRODUCTION PROTOCOL Comparison

Comparing the time taken to process the equivalent of 200 standard bottles manually or with a robotic automated system versus the RC-40 shows the major positive impact on labor cost and total cost of production.

ADDITIONAL INFO

Applications

Roller bottles offer an established, reliable method and a relatively inexpensive way to set up flexible biopharmaceutical operations. They are especially well suited to all adherent based vaccines and viral vector processes (MDCK, VERO, PERC6, HEK-293), “clean cells” for fermenter cultures and recombinant proteins.

Time to Market

It takes less than two months to convert from labscale to commercial maufacturing with the RC-40.

Automation & Control

Automation is inexpensive with the RC-40 system. Optional pH and DO wireless sensors (coming soon) provide additional control.

RC-40 MAKES ROLLER BOTTLES COOL AGAIN

Each frame handles 40 roller bottle processes simultaneously
