NORWOOD, Mass., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire-KYODO JBN/ --


- VIPS PRO delivers powerful and efficient seeding technology and definitive

proof of monoclonality for workflow productivity and confidence.


Advanced Instruments today announced the launch of Solentim VIPS PRO (

), a high efficiency single cell seeder, at the BioProcess International

Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. VIPS PRO revolutionizes cell line

development (CLD) and GMP manufacturing by combining powerful seeding

technology with two-step, image-based proof of monoclonality and proprietary

Artificial Intelligence-driven cell recognition for increased productivity and

A major challenge in CLD is providing absolute proof of clonal line generation

that regulatory authorities require. VIPS PRO offers a unique Double-Lock

Assurance of clonality, generating the two pieces of image-based evidence

required for IND submission. Compared to other methods, such as limiting

dilution, VIPS PRO's industry-leading seeding and clonal assurance process

eliminates human error, reduces hands-on time, and accelerates process

development and clinical manufacturing.


Based on the original VIPS technology, VIPS PRO is an indispensable technology

for bringing innovative biotherapeutics to market. The instrument delivers a of

range benefits for GMP-compatible clinical manufacturing labs, including:


    -- Highly efficient, automated single cell seeding

    -- Two-step, image-based Double-Lock Assurance of clonality

    -- Intelligent cell detection

    -- Single-use, GMP-friendly consumables

    -- Advanced data management and analysis with the STUDIUS(TM) software


    -- GMP-compatible workflow, including security features that support 21

       CFR Part 11 compliance

    -- Ergonomic instrument design with easy-to-access components


"VIPS PRO is a game-changer for single cell seeding, combining powerful,

efficient seeding technology with definitive image-based proof -- NOT

probability -- of monoclonality," said Byron Selman, CEO of Advanced

Instruments. "At Advanced Instruments, customer feedback is integral to what we

do and how we design new products. VIPS PRO builds on our trusted VIPS

technology with thoughtful updates that meet the needs of our customers."


VIPS PRO is part of an ecosystem of technologies from Advanced Instruments

built to accelerate cell line development workflows, from initial discovery to

scale-up and manufacturing of biotherapeutics. To learn more about VIPS PRO,
