Designed Specifically to Meet Your Single-Use Requirements
Our single-use sensors combine the reliability and measurement stability of our long-term proven conventional sensors with the ease of use as an integral part of the bioreactor. The sensors retain high accuracy performance even after gamma irradiation and offer a sufficient shelf life, making them the ideal single-use solution.
Ready to Use
Short Wet-In Time
Very Low Drift
True Integration Through Arc Technology
Rethinking Sensor Management
All Hamilton single-use products include options for Arc Intelligent sensor technology. Arc converts the measurement into a robust, noise-free connection without the bulk of traditional transmitters.
Arc Wi Wireless Adapter
Arc Wi Adapters enable wireless communication from sensors to ArcAir while passing through the hard-wired signal to the process control system. The LED provides a visual indicator of sensor status.
Hardwired Measurement Data
Your process data is communicated via Modbus digital protocol or 4–20mA directly to the control system.
Using the optional Arc Wi wireless adapter reduces data entry errors by scanning sensor calibration information directly into Hamilton ArcAir software.
45 kGy (pH), 50 kGy (all other sensors)
Dry Storage Time
Before irradiation: 12 months for all sensors
0 to 2 bar (pH and ODO Cap S0)
< 30 minutes prior to measurement
ISO 10933-5 and USP <87>
One Vendor, All the Measurements
Hamilton has worked closely with single-use bag manufacturers to understand the market needs.
Wide Variety of Measurements
Whether media prep, mixing, or cell culture, each application has different sensing requirements. Hamilton’s reusable measurement technologies
have been adapted for single-use bag installations.
Designed for Your Needs
There are no accordion-style insertion devices or probe assemblies that must be autoclaved. Single-use sensors come with either weld-in style measurement elements or work with industry standard port fittings. All products can be gamma sterilized with the bag prior to use.
Technology You Can Trust
Reliable glass membrane pH technology offers a proven measurement with broad range and very low drift after wet-in. The OneFerm is available in lengths from 70 to 425 mm so that your entire bioreactor product family can be outfitted with single-use specific pH sensors.
The unique S2 optical DO cap mounts on an insertion tube from the bioreactor headplate. It uses the same technology as the industry leading VisiFerm Optical DO sensor.
General Requirements for All Sensors
- 3rd party test data available for review
- Packaging suitable for clean room environments
- All sensor elements are pre-calibrated for manual input; No shift due to gamma irradiation
Hamilton single-use sensors are currently only available to integrators such as bag, bioreactor, and downstream skid manufacturers.
- Bioreactor, bag, and downstream skid manufacturers are encouraged to contact Hamilton to discuss integration opportunities.
- End-users at biopharmaceutical companies are encouraged to ask their single-use solution provider if Hamilton sensors are available for their installation.
