EMD Millipore and groninger has established a co-marketing agreement in which Millipore will be groninger's partner of choice for single-use technology and groninger will be Millipore's partner of choice for filling equipment.
Under the non-exclusive agreement, EMD Millipore will provide single-use filling products for use in conjunction with groninger's liquid filling equipment. By combining EMD Millipore's Mobius single-use final fill assemblies with groninger's liquid fill equipment, the co-marketing agreement "will help customers accelerate the development and time-to-market of biopharmaceutical therapeutics," according to a joint statement.
"The biopharmaceutical industry is facing increasingly complex drug production demands, as therapeutic drugs in development have smaller lot sizes and highly potent ingredients," said Vin Donovan, vice president of Biopharm Process Solutions at EMD Millipore. "This new partnership will allow us to help our customers address these new challenges while ensuring the safety of their filling operations. This new agreement reflects our commitment to growing our relationships with top-tier partners to better enhance our industry solutions."
