KR2i / Labo Scale
The KRIIi TFF system is ideal for conducting R&D filtration cycles in the field of micro and ultra-filtration.
To characterize a filtration process or maintain the validity of a process, it combines monitoring and flexibility for a large number of applications. Driven by a 2.3 LPM peristaltic pump, the Krosflo hollow fiber module filters efficiently and quickly while the piping chosen according to the module used minimizes dead volume.
The system provides a Krosflo digital pressure controller that monitors and displays the process pressures (supply, retentate, transmembrane pressure and flow rates), as well as alarms that close the pump in conditions of too high and too low pressure.
A PC is installed in interface with the controller to record all the data relating to your processes in the KF Comm database. The Research II TFF system effectively filters your samples while protecting them.
Three Filtration models available depending on the process
The entire system consists of pump piping, connections, HF module and two single-use tanks.
No cleaning or risk of cross-contamination for easier validation.
KF Comm data logging software
The PC connected to the system makes it possible to record the operating pressures in real time, the TMP, the pump flow rate, the date, the alarm threshold points in Excel spreadsheet to obtain graphics. Flow rates can be entered manually depending on the power supply.
Repligen's tangential flow filtration process easily allows extrapolation from a Pilot production to larger productions.
It is enough to multiply the surface area of the hollow fiber membrane that you use, the flow rate and the filtration rate of the process by the same factor, maintaining the pressure setpoints and the process times.
Coupled with Repligen membranes, the KrosFlo® Pilot system is ideal for diagnosis and the pilot phase of biopharmaceutical production.

Repligen has successfully combined the benefits of the hollow fiber design with the efficiency of tangential filtration to offer the most efficient micro and ultrafiltration consumables on the market.
The hollow fiber membranes offer the efficiency of a uniform flow through the lumen without loss of product or deposit since there is no "corner".
In addition, this uniformity of flow both inside the lumen and in all the fibers of the module makes it easy to extrapolate from Research & Development to industrial production.
The hollow fiber design makes it possible to increase the surface area of the membrane while maintaining the size of the module, which therefore remains without installation problems.
