How can ZYMON facilitate the daily plant management in comparison to HPLC?
Generating detailed and meaningful data in real-time during your process is often the bottleneck to optimization of key operating parameters and daily quality control (QC). Off-line analytical methods such as liquid or gas chromatography (HPLC/GCMS) are often the methods of choice and are indeed valuable for providing detailed compositional analysis, or for ensuring a product meets final QC checks. However, this methods have shortcomings related to sampling, and the calibration and maintenance needed, for not mentioning the limited data frequency and process information obtained.
Process analytical technologies (PAT) on the other hand, offer bioprocess plants the opportunity to gain an unprecedented level of insight into their processes and products. ZYMON in particular has been designed and calibrated to provide the highest level of real-time data for bioethanol processes.
Forget about sampling, calibration and maintenance.
Our patented solutions work inline (no sampling needed), are industrially robust, and require no user calibration (once plugged in, they produce data instantly during the first batch).
ZYMON is more than just an in-line HPLC for the bioethanol processes.
Moreover, the user can experience an automated process information (based on infection alarms and real-time yeast and enzymatic activities), and uninterrupted data every 5 minutes.
