Adds single-use sensor technology with Aber partnership

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) has entered into a global sales and development partnership with Aber Instruments, a specialized supplier of sensor technology for in-line biomass measurement in cell cultivation and fermentation processes.
 
SSB has exclusive global marketing and distribution rights to Aber’s single-use sensor technology, and Aber will supply measuring instruments. SSB will manufacture the biomass sensors under license and integrate them into its single-use bioreactors. SSB will exclusively market these products in a dual-branding arrangement.
 
“Single-use sensors make our disposable bags even more intelligent,” said Stefan Schlack, senior vice president of marketing at SSB. “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 SSB’s global sales and distribution network, we can make our technology accessible to an even wider group of customers. SSB 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.”
