FNet is a software for monitoring fermentation and cell culture processes with the LAMBDA MINIFOR laboratory fermenter. Runs under Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
All the information (actual values, set points, graphs, alarms) of the fermenter is presented in the main window :
- Actual values like temperature, pH, pO2, air flow rate, amount of base and acid, and an additional parameter X which could be for example the culture weight for continuous processes, optical density or an online biomass concentration measurement.
- Set point values like temperature, pH, pO2, air flow rate, agitation, another parameter X and one feed with a peristaltic pump
- Scalable graphs: The user can choose the fermenter parameters he wants to display in function of time
- Ruler to read values on the graphs
The process data (temperature, pH,...) are stored in a text file. This file can be exported to most programs on the market for statistical treatment or reporting. More fermentation batches can then be compared for process optimization.
