Low Cost Monitoring System for Cell Cultivators

Online Monitoring Design Group

Students: Adrian Foell, Irfan Khan and Aaliyan Kapadia

Program: Chemical Engineering

A shift towards a circular economy has created a need to produce biological products with low profit margins. To combat high capital costs required for a typical bioprocess, highly accurate monitoring systems are often substituted with inadequate and labour-intensive procedurals. The goal of our capstone project is to develop an accurate biomass monitoring system applicable for a bioprocess at a fraction of the cost currently available. This will include the development of a plug and play monitor combined with a user interface for seamless integration.
