Control Vessels from Any Vendor

The G3Pro Universal controller is a complete, self-contained
bioreactor controller for bioreactors from 50L to 2,000L.

The controller leverages Finesse technology including SmartParts,
TruBio® software, and SmartSensors to enable easy cell culture
and manufacturing.

The modular design allows the G3Pro Universal to evolve with
the process and integrate 3rd-party peripherals as needed.



  • Control most any brand / size of vessel
  • cGMP-compliant hardware for large single-use bioreactors
  • Modular and Flexible
  • Available Sensor Tridundancy
  • NEMA 12-Rated Enclosure
  • Powered by TruBio® Software
  • Utilizes Finesse SmartParts Components
