OUR USER-FRIENDLY, SMART AND ANALYTICAL PILOT- SCALE SW IS A REALITY

MARTA is born to be installed in the F2, F3 and FS series of Bionet’s fermenters, consolidating itself as the SW for advanced process monitoring, automation and control for pilot and industrial scale bioprocess activities.  
MARTA is desgined to be user-friendly, SMART, ANALYTICAL and CONNECTED

MARTA’s browsing screens outstand by its intuitive usage and beautiful appearance. An example of this is the synoptic view of the process, in which all actuators status and parameters present values can be observed and where all control windows can easily be accessed in an organized way for the configuration of the different control loops.
MARTA is SMART in that it allows various forms of automation, including:

  • Manual operation of many actuators, including the addition pumps, the agitator and the opening and closing of valves, among others.
  • Direct Set Point profiling of all process parameters for the activation of the different control loops.
  • Configuration of cascade-mode control profile of DO levels.
  •  A recipe-based automation approach, with several programmable stages and event- and time- based transitions.

Bionet firmly believes in the power of the ANALYTICAL at all levels of the bioprocessing activities, ranging from research and scaling-up studies (during which the characterization of strains and processes is a primordial step to reach successful results in the future), to the biomanufacturing scale. This way, the developers of MARTA have attributed great importance to the fields of visual and analytical tools and the data management arenas. As a result, the display, analysis and management of data is supported by:
  • On-line trend and comparative graphs.
  • The possibility to introduce offline data and integrate them within the graphs and the control options.
  • Generation of standard reports.

Finally, MARTA also features:
  • Alarms management capabilities, with alarms and interlocks having been programmed with the purpose of ensuring safety and the quality of the process. The alarms interface shows a list of alarms and its details (a description, an activation time, the duration and the status).
  • User management and access control capabilities, layered into 4 operative access levels (administrator, maintenance, supervisor and operator) for which different operational capabilities are enable.
  • GMP compliance by being designed to meet the CFR 21 Part 11 standards in audit trail, traceability, data authenticity and integrity and recovery.
