  • Rotameters vs. Alicats for bioprocessing

    Rotameters vs. Alicats for bioprocessing Flow meters are indispensable tools for bioprocessing, used to feed bioreactors and monitor critical process parameters. Here we provide a comparison of the operating principles and key features of two flow meter technologies: rotameters and Alicat mass flow meters. We then provide recommended use cases for each technology in bioprocessing […]
