Nearly 35 years ago, Aber pioneered a new method of measuring biomass of bioreactor cultures using intact cell membranes - Biocapcacitance technology. The technology is based on live cells having intact cell membranes. These cells can be considered to act as tiny capacitors under the influence of an electric field. These capacitors can be measured and converted to standard units of measurement. The Aber technology allows scientists to measure cell counts on-line, in real time without the need to take offline samples. Our variety of different probe types allows scale up ability. Manufacturing ready, plug and play. Aber Futura is simple and easy to use.
