Capsugel Announces Availability of its Modular Automated Sampling Technology (Mast) System

Capsugel announced the broad commercial availability of its Modular Automated Sampling Technology (MAST) system, which directly transfers samples from bioreactors to analytical devices while maintaining process sterility. This first-of-its-kind technology allows aseptic collection of accurate, representative samples that generate detailed process information in real-time. MAST represents the latest innovation developed by Capsugel to address biopharmaceutical product development and processing challenges MAST provides a modular system that is readily scalable and suitable for use throughout the product development process. The system instantaneously provides a wide range of information at the molecular level for media, cells and bioreactor products, allowing for rapid response to maintain optimum bioreactor conditions and maximize yields. The commercial availability of the technology is the culmination of a focused five-year program conducted by Capsugel's Bend, Ore. facility, in collaboration with several of the biopharmaceutical companies. The company has also developed alliances with numerous analytical equipment suppliers to facilitate process analytical technology (PAT) integration into bioprocessing through MAST. MAST provides for tailored system design and can be readily expanded with additional sampling modules as required. MASTconnect™ software allows for configurable, flexible and user-friendly operation of the MAST system, with special modules for sample scheduling, sample navigation and analytical data management.
