Sartorius Stedim Biotech, an international leading supplier for the biopharmaceutical industry, has launched its Integrated Solutions website, an online resource and information centre to support its clients as they develop and implement entire single-use or hybrid biomanufacturing processes.
The new website is designed to assist clients in the implementation of flexible, scalable and cost-efficient bioprocesses by utilising the tools, technologies, support and expertise available from Sartorius Stedim Biotech. To allow clients to better understand the effectiveness with which Integrated Solutions can be applied to their bioprocesses a comprehensive portfolio of case studies is available from companies such as Boehringer Ingelheim, Wuxi AppTec, Mabion, DMBio and Bayer.
The biopharmaceutical industry is being forced to adapt to changing and challenging market conditions. Reducing costs and increasing process optimisation are becoming increasingly important due to pressures from healthcare providers and competition from biosimilars. Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s new Integrated Solutions website describes how the company addresses these challenges through partnering with clients to design and develop entire single-use and hybrid processes for the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals.
Process development activities are co-ordinated by a team of process development consultants utilising an array of technologies and software tools, while the design and engineering of the large-scale bioprocess is performed by a separate, dedicated team that has successfully completed more than 100 fully single-use projects.
Ensuring clients benefit from the shortest time to market, Sartorius Stedim Biotech is using the Integrated Solutions website to showcase its new ‘mAb Process Platform’. The new platform is a result of the company’s innovative ‘Process4Success' initiative, which seeks to leverage both novel single-use processing technologies and the expertise within the organisation to define sequences of unit operations that can be combined to create an entire bioprocess line.
Multiple client testimonials are available on the new resource centre, describing how the Integrated Solutions approach has already been successfully applied to a number of diverse collaborative projects. For example, speaking of a recent collaboration between Sartorius Stedim Biotech and Boehringer Ingelheim, Jan Feuser, Head of Clinical Supply Facility Downstream at Boehringer Ingelheim, said: 'The ability to work across different sites at a global scale with one Boehringer Ingelheim project team and one Sartorius project team truly enabled the success of the project.'
