The new mPath™ bioreactor control system
The new mPath™ bioreactor control system is an expandable control and data management system including both bioreactor control towers and an advanced supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software package. Designed with a strong focus on ease of use, the system includes usability features such as biocontainer hangers with integrated load cells and mobile interfaces to modernize and simplify workflow. Features support characterization, optimization and compliance with GMP regulations providing a strong compliment to the Pall range of lab scale single-use bioreactors. The mPath bioreactor control systems are available with the XRS 25 bioreactor, with further lab scale bioreactors launching through the end of the year.

Software updates are managed through GitHub, our secure online code management system
This allows maximum traceability and effectiveness as well as GAMP5 compliance
Pall Link – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
Designed for enterprise-wide control and monitoring of bioreactor processes
Pall Link is a flexible bioprocess control software to connect your mPath bioreactor control towers.
- virtually plug & play setup of new bioreactors
- flexible control and recipe options
- multiple interface options
The software is supplied pre-loaded on a server which can be further configured by your IT team for full integration into the local network.
One license supports future updates within a master version, multiple bioreactors, and interfaces without additional hidden fees
Pall mPath bioreactor control system optimizes each element to provide the most flexible and stable process control at this scale. Effective process control is the combination of these three core elements
mPath bioreactor control towers include more standard sensor connections than any controller in the class.
Single-use and electrochemical CO2 Alternate biomass sensor types Four configurable I/O ports.
Integrated Load Cells
Three integrated load cells for hanging biocontainers.
PLCs are widely used in manufacturing for their performance, stability and resistance to environmental hazards.
PID control Modules
Combining standard PID control modules with custom programming allows for tailored control strategies specifically designed for lab scale cell culture.
Control loops are built to be fully exposed to the interface software, allowing users to tune and adjust loops to process requirements.
Accurate delivery of titrants is necessary for smooth process control.
The mPath bioreactor control tower features advanced output management systems.
Integrated systems ship with custom control cables specific to each system, control tower provides appropriate outputs for system control: mixing, temperature control and filter heaters.
Multiple Network Options

Integrated Computer Systems
Pall Link software and mPath bioreactor control towers are networked devices with integrated computer systems, allowing easy integration in local IT infrastructure
With IT support, users can access software from multiple locations
Pall Link server may be installed in the lab or removed from the bioreactor depending on requirements
Server is designed to be configured with IT preferred security solutions including anti-virus software and network security packages which allows IT to more easily manage server over time
mPath control towers are designed and tested to meet rigorous standards for environmental and electrical performance.
