BPC Instruments AB (“BPC” or “the Company”), a Swedish-based supplier of low gas volume and flow analytical instruments for biotechnology-related applications, announces today the global launch of BPC® Go, the next generation instrument for ultra-low gas volume and flow measurement with high precision and accuracy for laboratory applications. Supplied with a powerful onboard microcontroller, BPC® Go is a fully integrated and automated device for real-time measurement, data recording, and report generation with high reliability and remote accessibility, which is assessed to increase the total addressable market for BPC.
In line with BPC’s objectives of launching a new generation series of analytical instruments in 2022, the Company now launches its first flagship product of the new generation – BPC® Go. The instrument simplifies and secures low gas volume and flow measurements from most wet and dry gases including nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, methane and many more.
BPC® Go is a newly developed instrument with a brand-new hardware and software platform that will replace the existing products BPC® µFlow and µFlow data logger. These two existing products are a part of the Company’s product portfolio and have a small contribution in sales turnover of approx. SEK 1.3 million annually in the last three years. By combining the features of BPC® µFlow and µFlow data logger and implementing a lot more advanced functionalities with a powerful onboard microcontroller, BPC has developed a cost-efficient option for customers looking for a user-friendly, highly accurate, gas flow and volume meter. The Company expects increased profits with this new generation due to a greatly increased profit margin compared to the existing products.
Its compact design with well-integrated all-in-one features also allows easy delivery, installation, utilization, and product maintenance. BPC® Go can not only fulfil demands from the customers of BPC® µFlow and µFlow data logger but will also attract new customer groups for wider applications. BPC, therefore, expects a very high worldwide market potential with this new product.
Senior Scientist Dr. Sten Strömberg comments:
“Research facilities have benefitted from reliable inline gas flow measurements using µFlow, our first gas volume and flow meter. BPC® Go now offers researchers and engineers a more friendly user experience with more useful features, as well as an attractive, reliable, robust and Scandinavian design.”
CEO Dr. Jing Liu comments:
“BPC® Go is an excellent instrument for any application where the precise measurement of wet and dry gases volume and flow is key. It also builds on the technological leadership we have in developing state-of-the-art instruments for a range of biotechnology-related applications that offer automated monitoring, ease of use, and precise measurements. We believe this product could be a door opener for BPC to enter a more general laboratory and instrument market where the demand for monitoring gas volume and flow of any wet or dry gas is needed. The release of BPC® Go marks an important milestone for BPC and is well in line with our objectives for 2022, which were communicated in connection to our IPO in December 2021.”
About BPC® Go
BPC® Go is BPC Instruments’ latest product that measures the gas volume and flows with temperature and pressure compensation in real-time. Connecting via BPC® Go’s in-built Ethernet port, laboratories and R&D institutions around the world can monitor results from any device including tablets and mobile phones. BPC® Go is also extremely flexible. It can be operated as a stand-alone instrument for a specific application or combined with other inline sensors and actuators when running a biological fermentation process with a demand for measuring low gas flows and volume with high precision and accuracy.
