More Data, More Control, More Possibilities
Continuous on-line, or in-situ, data allows for real-time process control. With off-line data, decisions can only be made at the time of sample analysis, resulting in imprecise timing or missing events entirely. Permittivity measurement is quickly becoming the industry standard because of the robust real-time data. It correlates well to off-line cell counting in the crucial exponential phase without the risk of counting errors. Incyte Arc sensors can be used to increase process quality across many cell lines, process types, and scales. Learn what Incyte can do for you with integration facilitated by the Hamilton Applications team.
Introducing Incyte Arc
Incyte Arc is Hamilton's next-generation viable cell density sensor, offering high-fidelity permittivity measurements but now paired with integrated microtransmitters that leverage ArcAir technology.
Existing Incyte (Pre-Amp version) sensors will continue to be supported. To get documentation or re-order sensors, visit the Incyte (Pre-Amp version) page.
Review Hamilton's Cell Density Applications Ebook
Hamilton cell density sensors are compatible with many types of cell lines and microbial strains, process types, and industries. Read more below or download our Cell Density Applications eBook to see real data with different cell lines and process types.
Incyte Arc sensors provide a real-time measurement of viable cell density with continuous permittivity data. Off-line samples only provide limited, error-prone data points, so process events may be missed. Real-time permittivity reveals changes in cell physiology, so advanced process control can be automatically triggered for process optimization.
Expand your PAT capabilities with permitivity and gain process insights such as cell physiology through use of multi-frequency scan.
Precisely time key process events such as feeding, induction, and harvest for lower production cost, increased yield, and enhanced product quality.
Compare permittivity data to ensure batch-to-batch and scale-up reproducibility.
Continuous process improvement
Gather on-line viable cell density data every run to enable continuous optimization.
Real-time data means never missing a key process event. Use this data to develop enhanced process decisions for increased efficiency and prolonged productivity. Alternatively, use ArcAir Data Modeling software for real-time understanding of legacy off-line counts.

Will Incyte work with my cell line?
How often do Incyte sensors (pre-amp version) need to be calibrated?Hamilton recommends once per year with a validation at 6 months.
How does Incyte measure viable cell density?Incyte is a capacitance-based sensor responsive only to living cells.
What effect will bubbles have on the Incyte sensor measurement?Gas bubbles have two main impacts: (1) Decreased signal intensity since the sensor cannot measure in air. (2) Increased background noise.
