As one of the industry’s leading innovators of filtration technology, SmartFlow Technologies has designed and built the PuroSep® Pegasus to provide a compact, easy to use, robust platform offering unparalleled flexibility and performance at a value you cannot ignore. The Pegasus is the perfect choice for process development optimization, membrane selection, and small-scale production runs under cGMP conditions. The Pegasus is designed to be compatible with separating and concentrating therapeutic molecules from genetically modified organisms.
The design of this system emulates a full-scale production solution by utilizing high-end components such as sanitary pumps, self-draining, 316L stainless steel fluid path components, and high-resolution instrumentation. Intuitive, easy to use automation packages allow for precise process control and accurate measurement of operating conditions and membrane performance to assist you when scaling up to production level or scaling down for process optimization studies.
The PuroSep® Pegasus is offered in two standard tri-clamp retentate loop sizes of 1/2" and 3/4". For ultra-low hold up volume, the 1/2" retentate loop size may be used in conjunction with the OptiSep® 1000 filter holder and module. In addition to SmartFlow Technologies’ cutting edge, patented OptiSep® filter modules and holders, the Pegasus also incorporates the ability to operate other filter module formats such as hollow fiber, ceramic, cassette, and spiral. This flexibility makes the Pegasus the ideal bench top process development system.
SmartFlow Technologies makes configuring the optimal system for your process easy by providing standard automation packages comprised of all required components to ensure the best solution possible. These packages include manual control (Manual), automated flow and TMP control (Manager Package), and fully automated control with recipe mode for complete walk away functionality (Controller Package). Integration with your existing SCADA or process network is also possible with these automation packages. In addition to the standard automation offerings, SmartFlow Technologies offers a host of additional hardware accessories to accommodate the most demanding process.
By incorporating the dual point level control, the functionality of controlling a second pump or system is added. With this configuration, the liquid level within the PuroSep® Pegasus tank would control an electrical outlet on the back of the system capable of activating an ancillary pump to add starting material or buffer to the tank as the process requires. This feature also adds the advanced capability of automating diafiltration processes or simultaneous processing with two or more systems. In addition to providing the most robust and technically superior low volume solution, the Pegasus is also backed by SmartFlow Technologies’ professionally trained applications and technical support staff.
When partnering with SmartFlow Technologies, you gain the advantage of decades of innovation and quality enhancements in both systems and filter modules. For a complete, high quality, turn-key solution, you can trust SmartFlow Technologies to deliver.
