Sartorius enters into partnership with Nova Biomedical
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) announced an agreement with Nova Biomedical to integrate their BioProfile FLEX2 into the ambr multi-parallel bioreactor systems for automated, atline cell culture analytics. Both the BioProfile FLEX2 analyzer and the parallel bioprocessing functionality of the ambr create a unique tool able to simultaneously run, sample and analyze a massive number of cell culture conditions during high-throughput cell line, media and process development by Design of Experiments (DoE). This will allow biopharmaceutical companies to develop well-characterized cell culture processes in less time while preventing the process development bottleneck being shifted to the analytical laboratory. The partnership will deliver full integrated analytics for the ambr 15 cell culture system in Q3 2017 and later in 2017 for the ambr 250 high throughput. The ambr platform mimics the characteristics of classical bioreactors at the microscale by allowing automated parallel processing of single-use bioreactors.
