The Quantum system brings reproducibility and scalability to help companies get products from the lab to the market faster. By minimizing the need for hands-on attention, the system automates cell culture in a functionally closed environment.At the core of this system is an advanced bioreactor with thousands of hollow fibers. The bioreactor provides an expansive surface area for cells to attach to in a compact space. Throughout each automated step of the culture process, from loading the cells through harvest, the functionally closed environment remains intact. Media and waste pass through porous membranes while the gas transfer module regulates gas concentration.
