The Infinity controller is the cornerstone of J-KEM’s custom instrument program, based on a completely new concept for lab automation instrumentation.
The Infinity Concept
J-KEM Scientific specializes in making one-of-a-kind custom instruments. After 25 years, we know that it’s very expensive to make a custom instrument by building a custom piece of hardware. The vision of the Infinity controller is to have a single, versatile hardware interface that can be made into virtually any custom instrument by means of software.
The novel concept of the Infinity controller is that new instruments are not made in hardware, but software. For example:
Connect a thermocouple to the Infinity controller, and it becomes a temperature controller.
Connect a pressure transducer to the Infinity-controller and it becomes a vacuum regulator.
Connect a stirrer, chiller, syringe pump, and vacuum pump to the Infinity controller and it becomes a reaction controller.
Connect a syringe pump, oxygen sensor, and pH probe to the Infinity controller and it becomes a fermentation controller.
