Four Business Offers on a Glance

novasign builds bioprocessing models for process monitoring and advanced process control

We create process models and thereby process understanding based on the data we receive. For best results, preferably starting projects before data creation.

novasign offers bioprocess modeling consulting and contract modeling

Bioprocess development contract research with powerful equipment due to the proximity to BOKU core facilities (cultivations and purification from HT Screening until Pilot Plant). Also full analytical method spectrum (including SPR, MS...). Combining process and modeling expertise.

Advanced hybrid modeling toolbox for process modeling. Together with model-based and intensified Design of Experiments processes development timelines can be reduced significantly

 

novasign offers training for the hybrid modeling toolbox for companies and academia

We also build the (hybrid) modeling knowledge within your company.

Combining our knowledge with your data

We offer our customers tailored support and guidance throughout various stages of the digital transformation of bioprocess modeling and control. Starting from the first descriptive process model to fully implemented model-based process control (MPC). Get in contact with us and together with our data scientists we carefully discuss your process, the modeling goals and iterate through your process to find the optimal solution.

First steps

If you recorded process data and would like to build the first model, describing the process or to make first predictions, we support you with initial data import (basic process on-line data, data from advanced sensors, and off-line analytics), data pre-processing, visualization and to find the best-suited model structure for your application.

Advanced process modeling

​You already use statistical modeling tools, such as design of experiments, or mechanistic approaches and understand the basic influences, but want to know if hybrid modeling would increase your time-resolved process knowledge? We evaluate the accuracy, predictive capabilities and possible implementations of existing and suggested models.

Digital twin application

Once a suitable model structure is established and properly trained, we offer in-silico process optimization for upstream and downstream steps. Our  digital process twins  enable the replacement of laboratory experiments with virtual experiments, saving money and time in the long-term.

Model-based process control strategies

With well-trained hybrid models and predictive digital twin applications in hand, we help you tackle the last part of the digital transformation - model predictive control (MPC). Together with our partners, we set up model-based controllers that detect deviations of critical quality attributes on-line to adapt critical process parameter settings in real-time, thereby reducing deviations in production processes.
