Field Service Automation

Explore a scalable, commercial-off-the-shelf automation platform that saves time and money for your life sciences operations.

The more time you spend on production startup, validation and cleaning, the longer it takes to get your pharmaceutical product to market. Single-use equipment has helped life sciences manufacturers get some of that time back by simplifying production and clean-in-place operations. But your goal is maximum efficiency.

We’ll help you reach it with a scalable, commercial-off-the-shelf automation platform built specifically for your single-use bioreactors so you can get to market faster, simplify operations and lower maintenance costs for your production assets. This fully integrated, flexible system with built-in plug-and-produce technology makes it possible to:

  • Integrate and validate a bioreactor in as little as six months
  • Simplify operations and maintenance with standardized application software
  • Improve uptime as much as 25% by reducing cleaning time
