Sar­to­rius Ste­dim Biotech, PSU an­nounce part­ner­ship

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - World News -

Sar­to­rius Ste­dim Biotech and Penn State Uni­ver­sity (PSU) have en­tered into a col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ship to ad­vance mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary teach­ing and re­search in biotech­nol­ogy. This long-term re­la­tion­ship will sup­port the ed­u­ca­tion and prepa­ra­tion of the next gen­er­a­tion of biotech­nol­ogy lead­ers.

Part of Sar­to­rius’ in­vest­ment will be to en­hance the Fer­men­ta­tion Fa­cil­ity that will play a sig­nif­i­cant role in Penn State’s Cen­ter of Ex­cel­lence in In­dus­trial Biotech­nol­ogy (CoEIB). Sar­to­rius will pro­vide state-of-the-art fer­men­ta­tion tech­nolo­gies, and a cen­tral lab­o­ra­tory within the Fer­men­ta­tion Fa­cil­ity will be named the Sar­to­rius Fer­men­ta­tion Gallery.

The Fer­men­ta­tion Fa­cil­ity is one of ten core fa­cil­i­ties in the Huck In­sti­tutes of the Life Sciences and the corner­stone of Penn State’s com­pre­hen­sive biotech­nol­ogy ef­fort. This ef­fort in­cludes the CoEIB, re­cently launched with a land­mark gift from CSL Behring. The CoEIB pro­vides a fo­cal point for Penn State’s pro­grams in the area of in­dus­trial biotech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing the devel­op­ment of re­search and ed­u­ca­tional ini­tia­tives fo­cused, among other ar­eas, on bio­phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal man­u­fac­tur­ing, i.e., the man­u­fac­ture of med­i­cal drugs from bi­o­log­i­cal sources.
