DIGITALIZATION

Lucullus PIMS aligns and stores all data from disparate sources of the entire bioprocess environment in one place. The integration is made easy by integrated workflows and a high degree of automation. All information is securely and traceably stored, easily accessible and ready to be directly applied.

  • Highly automated integration of all data from disparate sources
  • All data aligned to processes
  • Data integrity
  • Secure data storage
  • Easy access from anywhere – even in real time
  • Paperless documentation

CONNECT DISPARATE DATA SOURCES

To see the whole picture of the bioprocess, typically tedious data integration and alignment is required. Lucullus PIMS solves this bottleneck by guided user entries, automated file imports, barcode support and bidirectional communication to an incomparable range of lab equipment.

 

COMPREHENSIVE BIOPROCESS DATA MANAGEMENT

PROCESS CONTROL

Lucullus PIMS enables advanced control to execute robust bioprocesses exactly as designed. This is applicable across all reactor systems to provide a single interface for monitoring and control.

  • Centralized process monitoring
  • Real-time communication of relevant process events
  • Infinite number of parallel processes
  • Easy implementation of process control step chains
  • Digital tools for advanced process control
  • Independence of hardward vendors

 

PROCESS DESIGNS EASILY IMPLEMENTED

Lucullus PIMS closes the gap between standalone devices by its extensive data integration capabilities and makes all real-time information available for control. Detailed process step chains dictate the timely sequence of events no matter whether the control action shall be automatically performed by a device or manually by an operator. Incorporated control algorithms and event-based decisions furthermore ensure that process designs can be easily implemented and executed without limitations.

ADVANCED CONTROL FOR ROBUST BIOPROCESSING

INCREASED PERFORMANCE

SAMPLE MANAGEMENT

Lucullus PIMS automatically integrates and aligns all sample data. It builds bridges between bioprocesses and sample analytics.

  • Efficient and documented sampling procedures
  • Planning of sampling schedules
  • Label and barcode printing for sample identification
  • Sample notifications
  • Automated collection and alignment of data from all analyzers
  • Application of at-line and on-line data for process control

SAMPLE PLANNING AND DATA HANDLING MADE EASY

Lucullus PIMS optimizes the activities around manual sampling and alignment of data from analytics. Structured sampling schedules allow defining where, when and how much sample needs to be drawn for what purpose. The respective labels containing IDs and barcode for identification can be directly printed via Lucullus PIMS. During process execution, sampling notifications display the information according to the sampling plan. The barcode labelled samples just need to be scanned at the analyzers to automatically identify them, retrieve the data from the analyzer and assign it to the correct process and time. This does not only enable timely monitoring together with all other data but also process control based on at-line analytics.

 

TIME-SAVING AND RELIABLE SAMPLE WORKFLOW

MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Lucullus PIMS provides digital warehousing for all raw materials and media lots. Based on recipes, the lot preparation is fully guided and automatically documented. The linkage to processes ensures full traceability from the initial raw material to the final product.

  • Media recipe management
  • Database for all material lots (expiration date, lot, supplier, safety, etc.)
  • Guided lot preparation
  • Full barcode support
  • Data logging from all media kitchen devices
  • Effortless and detailed documentation
  • Traceability from the process to raw materials to idnetify CMA

EFFORTLESS DOCUMENTATION OF MEDIA PREPARATION

Lucullus PIMS provides a database for the detailed management of chemical and media lots. This digital warehousing is complemented by the assisted preparation of media, feed, stock and buffer solutions based on scalable recipes. During lot preparation the user receives step-by-step guidance and can easily capture the ingredient lot through barcode scanning. Measurements from media kitchen devices (scales, pH probes, osmometers, conductivity) can be automatically recorded. Prepared solutions can be labelled, integrated into the warehousing and be easily linked to processes whenever used.

 

DETAILED MEDIA INFORMATION LINKED TO BIOPROCESS DATA
