Finesse and One Hill Solutions Release SmartLab™ Platform for Lab-Scale Bioprocess Optimization

Finesse Solutions, Inc., a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for life sciences process applications, in partnership with One Hill Solutions, an innovative software developer in Massachusetts, announced the launch of the SmartLab platform for lab-scale bioprocess optimization. SmartLab is the first end-to-end data management system to integrate leading third-party design-of-experiment (DoE) software, multivariable data analysis (MVDA), recipe management, data visualization and seamless analyzer connectivity.

SmartLab is based on the RECONN software engine developed by One Hill Solutions. It also includes the TruBio®, TruPur™ and TruChrom™ bioreactor control software and SmartSystems developed by Finesse. SmartLab will allow both life sciences research and process development groups a novel and cost-effective data archiving solution, centralized data/recipe mining for DoE or statistical analysis and remote access to process reports, plots and live trend visualization against a “golden batch.” The SmartLab software will also have the capability to notify users by email or text when batch reports are ready for viewing, when online values are out of range, or when network connections are down.

“RECONN, as its name implies, was originally developed to obtain information about the activities of intelligent bioprocessing systems and to secure data of a particular batch,” said Rami Mitri, president of One Hill Solutions. “We recognized the need for efficient execution of instant data visualization and analysis of experiments in laboratories having anywhere between 4 and 100 bioreactors. The SmartLab platform incorporates modern tools such as Microsoft.NET and the OSIsoft PI System™ historian.”
