Advanced Instruments Introduces OsmoTECH™ Single-Sample Micro-Osmometer

Designed to meet the demanding needs of the biotech industry

NORWOOD, MA- July 2, 2018: Today, Advanced Instruments—a leading developer of scientific and analytical instruments for the biotech industry and leading authority on osmometry—announced the release of the OsmoTECH Single-Sample Micro-Osmometer.

OsmoTECH’s data management capabilities, security features, and embedded web server far surpass the capabilities of other osmometers on the market today. OsmoTECH provides the 21 CFR Part 11 compliance features that GMP environments demand. Plus, the system uses freezing point depression—the gold-standard testing method in osmometry—to provide the accuracy and precision you need to optimize your workflow and quality control program.

“No other company offers a system that provides the features that support critical osmolality testing throughout the bioproduction process. We designed OsmoTECH to meet the needs of the biotech industry to help ensure the successful production of biologics and to help meet 21 CFR Part 11 compliance,” says Byron Selman, President and CEO of Advanced Instruments.

OsmoTECH is easy-to-use, reliable, and fits easily into production workflows. Osmolality is a critical quality parameter used throughout process development and manufacture of biological therapeutics and injectable solutions. It helps ensure cell health, in-process raw material quality, and helps reduce the risk of expensive batch failures, which can delay delivery of critical therapeutics to patients. “Companies may not test osmolality as often as they should during in-process production—which can be a costly mistake. If you’re not routinely testing osmolality, you may be putting your biological drug at risk,” says Selman. “OsmoTECH provides you with a solution that doesn’t disrupt your workflow.”
