Clotho historical explanation

It’s all about knowing where we are at any time

Some years back we were in a desperate need for the absolutely optimum pump to be integrated with continuous processing Packed-Bed-Bioreactor systems. Old fashion peristaltic and centrifugal pumps was out of the question! Diaphragm pumps sounded great – but none such accurately controlled diaphragm pump existed! Combined with single-use capability … we had to develop and patent this pump ourselves = became CerPhragm!

Quite appropriate “Clotho” is the Greek mythology goodness of "life time" and one of the 3 fates, which combined control life of every mortal from birth to death. There were 3 Moirai goodness’s and the two other sisters are “Atropos” and “Lachesis”. Clotho measures the “thread of life”, which makes good sense for determining the process control of a continuous operating diaphragm pump and subsequent bioreactor!

Software of 3 sisters Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos are essential the same. Clotho is green, the larger Lachesis is green, Atropos is red.

The concept of regulating dynamically / in real-time the position of a free-floating elastic membrane is miles ahead of any traditional membrane / diaphragm pump / exchanger. The invention originates from the CEO of PerfuseCell and the concept is visible via granted patents.
