Agreement to Promote Development of Single-Use Biomass Sensors

By BiotechDaily International staff writers
Posted on 11 Mar 2013
A recently announced marketing and development agreement focuses on single-use biosensors that are used by the biopharmaceutical industry for obtaining in-line biomass measurements during cell cultivation and fermentation processes.

Sartorius Stedim Biothech (Aubagne, France), a leading provider of equipment and services for development, quality assurance, and production in the biopharmaceutical industry, will be cooperating with Aber Instruments (Aberystwyth, United Kingdom), a global leader in in-line biomass measurement technology. Biomass sensors are high-performance tools for modeling and optimizing biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing processes.

The agreement will give Sartorius exclusive global marketing and distribution rights to Aber's single-use sensor technology for the biopharmaceutical market. Sartorius will manufacture the biomass sensors under license, integrate these into its single-use bioreactors, and exclusively market these products in a dual-branding arrangement. New single-use sensors will be developed by both companies.

"Single-use sensors make our disposable bags even more intelligent," said Stefan Schlack, senior vice president of marketing at Sartorius Stedim Biothech. "They deliver real-time information about the progress of cell culture processes and help biopharmaceutical customers to understand their processes even better and further optimize them – a decisive competitive advantage."

Dr. John Carvell, sales and marketing director at Aber Instruments, said, "Based on Sartorius Stedim Biothech's global sales and distribution network, we can make our technology accessible to an even wider group of customers. Sartorius has in-depth expertise in single-use technology and is thoroughly versed in bioprocesses. Together with our profound knowledge of in-line biomass measurement, both companies stand to benefit from the joint development of new sensors.”
