Design

Single use Biotech Facility

Basis of design for a Biologics facility using single use technology.  The concept for this facility was Islands of automation with a central data historian which is interfaced with an MES to produce Electronic Batch Reports.  A prototype was also designed and built as part of the basis of design.  This was done by developing PLC code and graphics to simulate  a single use bioreactor which was interfaced with a number of MES packages.  An interface was also setup between the MES packages and ERP to demonstrate how the MES could retrieve data from ERP and update ERP at the end of a batch.
