MatrikonOPC Releases OPC Server for Applikon Bioreactor Controllers

Press release date: February 26, 2014

Edmonton, AB –  MatrikonOPC™ announced the release the OPC Server for Applikon, which provides secure, reliable connectivity to the Applikon EZControl bioreactor controller. Finesse Solutions, Inc., maker of solutions for managing complex bio-process applications in the life sciences industry, standardized its third-party data communications on MatrikonOPC technology in 2009 and now includes the new OPC Server with its TruBio® DV SCADA software overlay for Applikon EZControl bioreactor controllers.

Standardizing on MatrikonOPC helps provide Finesse Solutions' customers with ready access to critical bio-processing data from third-party devices. By overcoming common data interconnectivity obstacles, this allows end-users to integrate their automation systems into a single operator workstation with access to all visualization dashboards.

Using OPC, Finesse Solutions can rapidly and cost-effectively integrate both large and small numbers of Applikon EZContol controllers into customers’ control networks based on DeltaV® from Emerson Process Management. This also allows users to develop more sophisticated control strategies using legacy equipment in a master-slave configuration with TruBio®-SCADA software.

The MatrikonOPC OEM Program enables software and hardware vendors to provide their customers with world class connectivity software and support, while keeping the vendors’ resources focused on their core areas of expertise
