The ADvanced Space Experiment Processor (ADSEP) biotechnology facility contains three independent thermal zones, each accommodating one cassette, and an internal computer that controls the internal functions of all three cassettes. Cassettes can house bioseparation methods, diffusion-cell and mixing-cell capabilities, and cell-culturing equipment.
ADSEP is a fully automated multi-use processing facility for interface with SpaceX’s Cargo Dragon, Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus or the ISS EXPRESS Rack.
