With its new laboratory, Sartorius Stedim Biotech says it is making validation of membrane filters more convenient and time-saving. Chinese customers can have their entire process steps validated locally and will also benefit from direct interaction with Sartorius specialists on site.
“Our Shanghai validation lab provides high-quality services that are fully compliant with applicable GMP and GLP principles. At this validation service lab, we now offer comprehensive process validation studies for the strongly growing Chinese pharma market,” said Jörg Lindenblatt, senior vice president of sales for bioprocess solutions in Asia, SSB.
