The new WHEATON® R2P® 2.0 Roller System combines a new level of control with Ethernet networking capabilities in numerous bottle rolling configurations.

WHEATON has introduced a revolution in adherent cell culture equipment. The R2P 2.0 is the first touch screen, Ethernet network-capable roller culture device for the vaccine and biologics industry.

Designed for robustness and ease of use, units are fully configurable to meet demanding biopharmaceutical process requirements.

WHEATON roller apparatus are used worldwide for research and production of therapeutic antibodies, vaccines, proteins and cells.

The R2P 2.0 automatically controls and monitors the rotational speed of the cell culture bottles with a service-free, high precision motor.

A single apparatus can rotate up to 176 bottles. The settings on the R2P 2.0 are controlled through a color touch screen that displays all prominent process parameters and system alarms.

Parameters are accessed through readily recognizable icons and changed through intuitive configuration screens. The units are also compatible with existing networked WHEATON roller apparatus for plug and play backwards compatibility.

The WHEATON R2P 2.0 also has a USB downloadable internal event log file to record any parameter changes or alarm notifications.

Available options for the R2P 2.0 include temperature sensors and automatic battery backup to ensure an optimal environment for cell growth.

Custom configurations are available to accommodate scientists with specific requirements. International customers can specify country specific plug sets to assure electrical power supply is locally compatible.

WHEATON offers a variety of related equipment and consumables to support roller bottle cell culture.

“Careful cultivation of adherent cells in roller bottles demands a roller rack with the features we built-in to the R2P 2.0 Roller System,” said Stephen R. Drozdow, president of WHEATON.

“We strive to continually introduce advanced products with features scientists tell us they want, which is a never ending challenge as technology continues to evolve…but we’re up to it,” he added.
