The Company’s YSI brand 2900 Series Biochemistry Analyzers have the ability to accurately and rapidly monitor and control fermentations and cell cultures.

Xylem’s YSI brand 2900 Series Biochemistry Analyzers constitute an essential part of many stages of bioprocessing and life sciences applications due to their ability to accurately and rapidly monitor and control fermentations and cell cultures. 

YSI biochemistry analyzers offer both offline and online analysis of critical samples for companies that manufacture vaccines, small molecules, alcoholic beverages, chemicals, and biofuels. The YSI 2900 Series includes the 2900, the 2950, and the recently launched 2900M biochemistry analyzers.

Whether it is in R&D, bioreactor optimization, scale-up or production, the need for accurate measurement of key analytes is important, but obtaining such measurements in real-time is paramount. YSI biochemistry analyzers are able to measure, monitor, and control processes accurately, easily, and quickly (under 1 minute) due to their innovative biosensor technology.  

To obtain high product yields in biotech or pharmaceutical applications, the metabolism and health of the cell cultures have to be assessed regularly. And there’s a crucial need to monitor key nutrients (glycerol, lactose, etc.) and by-products (ammonium, lactate, etc.) levels, and to adjust feed rates on the bioreactor accordingly in a quick manner in order to maximize cell growth.  The YSI 2900 Series biochemistry analyzers offer accurate, rapid, and reproducible methods to measure and monitor the process.  Ultimately, companies experience successful completion of their cell cultures, higher production, and increased profit with less labor time.

A number of alcoholic beverage manufacturers have also utilized Xylem’s YSI brand biochemistry analyzers to test the quality of incoming raw materials and the efficiency of their enzymes during fermentation to ensure high yields and the release of good sellable products. The YSI 2900 Series biochemistry analyzers enable manufacturers to monitor the status of the process converting starch to glucose to alcohol, and to respond quickly and accurately. The YSI biochemistry analyzers are also cost-effective and easy-to-use, which translates into reduced labor hours and lower capital expenditures, and ultimately a positive impact on the bottom line.
