SIMATIC PCS 7 in the pharmaceutical industry “Blood Plasma Fractionation” (demo project)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC BATCH are used to illustrate and manage the blood plasma fractionation process with the required high level of efficiency, quality and performance.

Blood plasma fractionation is the process by which proteins are obtained from the human blood plasma. This process involves several phases and takes place under strict guidelines and strictly controlled ambient conditions.

The application example is realized as a SIMATIC PCS 7 multiproject in accordance with ISA-88 and provides a template that comprises all typical components, their open- and closed-loop control, the necessary logic and locking as well as the visualization. It is modularly structured and based on standardized equipment and control modules.

The following equipment modules are included:
  • Unit for thawing deep-frozen blood plasma
  • Unit for the production of coagulation factor VIII
  • Production line for blood plasma fractionation by adding ethanol
In the application example, the sequence of the entire process is controlled via SIMATIC BATCH.
Using the application example has the following advantages:
  • A reduction of the knowledge necessary to develop applications
  • A decrease in the configuration effort
  • More flexible setup and adaptation due to equipment modules
