Finesse Solutions, LLC Announces OPC Connectivity With Nova BioProfile 400

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Finesse Solutions, LLC, a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for life sciences process applications, and Nova Biomedical, Waltham, MA, a world leader in biotechnology process monitoring announced the first TruBio(TM) OS plug-in for OPC connectivity between TruBio(TM) OS and Nova BioProfile 400, 100 Plus, Basic 4 and Basic 2 analyzers. Both companies confirmed that a TruBio(TM) OS plug-in for OPC connectivity to the Nova Flex is currently in development.

OPC (Openness, Productivity and Collaboration) has become the de facto standard for data exchange in process control systems. It has been adopted by the majority of the control system manufacturers in the bioprocess industry and has proven to be a reliable method for sharing information across different hardware platforms.

Automatic data exchange using OPC between a lab analyzer and control system reduces errors and time delays of manual sampling, and provides automated reporting of results. It also allows the control system to adjust process parameters without a 24/7 operator presence, and, in the event of process alarm conditions, alerts off-site personnel and/or takes automatic corrective action.

This level of integration enables direct consolidation of off-line lab analyzer results into existing historical data collection, automates batch report generation, and creates a complete electronic record. Printouts of standalone analyzer results do not have to be manually attached or tracked with electronic batch reports that control systems already provide.

"Taking advantage of OPC connectivity between Nova analyzers and the Finesse bioprocess control system will improve quality and yield, while reducing operating costs. For example, programming a Nova analyzer to automatically standardize an in-situ probe, or using the resulting sample data in real-time control algorithms, will increase both process understanding and control accuracy," stated Dr. Mark Selker, CTO and co-founder of Finesse.

"By redefining the standard associated with offline data to include complete integration and the value of those data as they are applied to the bioprocess automatically, Nova and Finesse continue to provide the cutting edge technology required to bring the biotechnology industry into a new era of effectiveness and profitability. The value lies in the actions upon that information. Nova and Finesse provide the compliment to each other's technologies thereby allowing our customers real-time benefits that, until now, were impossible," says Bob Fox, Director of Sales.
