TrupH

TrupH reusable 12mm pH electrodes are designed for improved performance and reliability in cell culture and fermentation applications.TrupH sensors offer better measurement repeatability, low drift, and a rapid response time. The reference electrode is designed to minimize fouling even in high cell-density bioprocesses.

A pH electrode includes the reference and sensing electrodes, an optional temperature sensor, and an electrical connector. For a given transmitter, the pH electrode can be replaced. The pH electrode can be separated from the cable and transmitter for sterilization. Insertion lengths of 120, 225, 325 or 425 mm are available.

Features

  • Fast response
  • Highly repeatable
  • Proven reliability
  • Suitable for autoclave, SIP and CIP
  • Certified “Like for Like” replacement for Broadley-James/ Mettler-Toledo (Ingold)

pH / DO Dual External Transmitter

1056 133X134

Dual External
Transmitter

The pH / DO dual external transmitter is a remote pipe or panel mounted instrument which is designed for the simultaneous measurement of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) using sterilizable sensors. Finesse TrupH / TruDO sensors are plug-and-play with this transmitter. The transmitter prompts the user to configure each sensor loop in a few quick steps for immediate deployment. The transmitter also continuously monitors itself and the sensor for faults or errors, and provides easily recognizable alarm information to the control system or diagnostics on its screen. Its outputs are two 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 20 mA current signals that are electrically isolated and earthed (grounded). The external transmitter is the perfect solution for system retrofits.

Local Languages: The Finesse External Transmitter offers seven local languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese. Every unit includes user programmable menus, calibration routines, faults, and warnings; user help screens appear in all seven languages. The displayed language can be easily set or changed using the menus.

 

TruSens Transmitter

Trusens Transmitter 100X169

TruSens TX

TruSens blades (or digital transmitters) are mounted in a Finesse bioreactor controller and do not have a display or keypad. All blades provide automatic input of calibration data. The Virtual Transmitter module in Finesse TruBio® software allows full access to all of the blade’s functions, simulates a physical transmitter, and adds alarms and connectivity monitoring capability.

 

Housings

Newhousing

Sensor housing

TrupH and TruDO housings are designed to protect traditional 12mm pH and DO sensors when they are used in stainless steel bioreactors or fermentors. These housings are manufactured using 316L stainless steel and only use FDA approved wetted materials (e.g., o-rings). Finesse housings offer a standard PG 13.5 threaded insert for 12 mm sensors as well as a selection of interfaces with standard Ingold, B. Braun safety and sanitary ports.

 

pH Buffer Solutions

Our pH buffer solutions provide traceability to international standards. They also offer the advantages of high stability, easy handling, and long shelf-life.

 

Cable Connectors

D4cable 133X67

Custom cable lengths

TruCables™ are designed to securely connect sensors and transmitters and provide higher repeatability, increased signal stability and reduced noise in measurement signals. The cables are available with a variety of standard connectors and are also compatible with sensors made by other manufacturers. TruCables can be used in all bioprocess applications and vessel types.
