Emerson Process Management has entered an agreement with Irvine, CA-based Finesse Solutions, LLC, a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for life sciences process applications. Emerson will provide Finesse’s customers with integration and process automation services between Emerson’s DeltaV digital automation system and Finesse’s TruBio Bioreactor Control System on projects developed by Finesse’s direct sales force for bioprocess drug development and production.
Powered by the DeltaV controller, the TruBio system is an “open” configurable software solution developed specifically for the life sciences industry. The embedded configurable control logic for pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, agitation and other parameters provides flexible control for both cell culture and fermentation applications. Emerson’s role will be to integrate and scale up the embedded DeltaV controller in Finesse’s products into a larger DeltaV system, or expand it to a plant-wide system.
