Systems uses engineering principles to combine commercially
available tools and products that integrate, facilitate and
automate laboratory experiments and processes in biological
research and production.
in today's bioresearch, development and production environment
requires more than the implementation of "single-use"
tools (spreadsheets and standalone instrumentation) to perform
ad hoc experiments. Informatics, connectivity and automation
streamline research and production while maintaining a uniform
corporate knowledgebase that can be shared between researchers.
BME Systems provides the technical "glue" to integrate
the components of a process into coherent and robust system.
engineering is a multidisiplinary field with extentions from
virtually every branch of engineering, especially the electrical,
mechanical and computer sciences. Comprehensive knowledge
of each of these disciplines is often required for each application
that reveals signals or stimulates structures within living
organisms. Typical engineering tasks can range from monitoring
picoamp currents in cellular membranes to controlling the
growth of 1000 liter fermentations containing millions of
Systems has expertise in the following areas:
Process Monitoring and Control
Systems can design and manufacture instrumentation and mechanical
components that are not commercially available.
all the pieces for an automated version of your process are
available off-the-shelf. In other cases, however, components
of an automated process may need to be modified or developed
to accomplish the task. BME Systems has designed and fabricated
dozens of unique instruments to meet unique bioprocessing
client needs to digitally image hundreds of plant specimens
per day at dozens of stations with rotating users. The
15 parameters required for reproducible imaging must
be controlled so that specimens taken today are comparable
with those taken in two years.
Systems identified the pertinent parameters and designed
and manufactured mechanical semi-automated stations
including software that works in conjuction with commercial
imaging to provide and verify the necessary control.
THe software feeds the image information to the corporate
laboratory information management system.
client uses 40 fermentors from several different manufacturers
ranging from 2 liters capacity to 500 liters in their
research and development division. There is a requirement
for a common system to record and control process data
with alarming. Full connectivity to all ferementors
is necessary and the data must be available at several
locations in the plant and remotely via a secure mechanism.
Systems implements a commercial industrial process control
system in combination with standard and custom drivers
to bring all fermentation systems together to provide
a uniform corporate resource with central alarming and
display and control by fermentor groups for 30 users
at 3 locations.
