The U2k® single-use centrifuge is the scaled-up version of our successful UniFuge Pilot product. It uses gamma-irradiated, single-use modules to eliminate cleaning needs. It is designed for primary clarification of mammalian cell cultures (e.g., CHO cells) and harvesting (including washing and concentrating) stem cells and other types of cells for biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications.
The U2k has a small footprint.
Process hundreds of liters of product per hour.
Accurately transferring operating protocols to the UniFuge® Pilot or the UFMini® is straightforward.
Uses a sterile single-use module that is easy to install and replace after each run.
Low-shear centrifugation allows for high-quality and high-recovery separation.
Easily incorporated into a fully-automated workflow and significantly reduces processing time.
Software and automation minimize process upsets and errors.
This single-use, closed system reduces contamination risks. It provides flexibility for multi-product facilities.
The UniFuge systems are designed to resume and recover from an interrupted process without product loss.
The UniFuge systems can hold materials in the bowl for washing and buffer exchanges.
Built in a state-of-the art US facility by following the highest standards of quality control.
U2k modules can be tube welded to your single-use bioreactor connections (customer-specified single-use connectors available upon request). The U2k is completely automated with flexible cycle parameter entry via touch screen HMI. The feed suspension is gently pumped to the module and the cells settle to the outer radius, while the clear supernatant and concentrate are continuously discharged.
“The UniFuge had the shortest processing time versus Ksep.”
Protein Separation Bioproduction Expert, CHO
“The 20L/min flow rate is great for harvesting from 1,000-2,000 L+ bioreactors. Processing ~1,000 L/hr is very helpful for our operators. It would save a significant amount of time.”
mAb Bioproduction Expert
“This really opens the door with the potential to go above 300 L.”
mRNA and pDNA Bioproduction Expert
“The U2k was fairly simple to use and scales nicely from the UFMini and UniFuge.”
Cell Therapies Bioproduction Expert
“The UniFuge line is easy to scale-up to the U2k or down to the UFMini.”
