Clotho Drive Unit

Advanced and compact Clotho


CellMembra P-SUB integrate the Clio One-way-Single-Use-Pump (O-SUP) cell. CellRetention P-SUB integrate the Thalia Alternating-Single-Use-Exchanger (A-SUE). Clio and Thalia functionality relay on the Apollon brain inside Metis hardware controlled by the Clotho software to maximize the Perfusion-SUBs unique functionality. PLC hardware Apollon (inside Metis) insure the Clio becomes a true Positive Displacement (PD) O-SUP and Thalia A-SUE performs as an accurate broth alternating exchanger.

The portfolio of CellMembra and CellRetention P-SUBs are technically driven by the Clotho software loaded into the Apollon PLC housed inside the Metis Drive Unit hardware. The colourful GUI is based on CodeSys software on top of Linux 8 firmware named Jessie. Super compact Apollon PLC is integrated into the very compact Metis unit (Hephaestus cabinet) and then loaded with the specific green Clotho software.

The intelligent Clotho Drive Unit is able to control (as standard) one or two O-SUPs / A-SUEs over distances up to 2 meter distance.

A few Clotho features are:

  • The smallest, most compact, most light weight Drive Unit available - fits easily in your lab
  • Even available in a stereo / dual channel version
  • The most accurate Drive Unit globally available - 1 % mass-flow accuracy
  • Build in human intelligence which compensate for O-SUP, A-SUE, HFF manufacturing tolerances and different hose dimensions and length

Software upgrades easily performed via an USB memory stick supplied by PerfuseCell. Insert the stick into the USB socket - turn Clotho off and on - and vupti the software on the stick will be installed.
