Sartorius and G-Con announce global collaboration

The new product line will use G-Con Manufacturing’s modular, mobile clean-room pods and SSB’s single-use, reusable product portfolio to create an integrated production process platform.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) has incorporated its products into unit operations for media/buffer preparation, seed fermentation, cell cultivation and harvesting, ultra-diafiltration, membrane chromatography and viral clearance for biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing.

SSB’s Integrated Solutions unit will use G-Con’s platform of modular clean-room systems in their designs. The company says it will also benefit from G-Con’s engineering and design expertise.

“Our vision is to create standardised unit operations, implemented into the self-contained G-Con modules. These modules can be used as individual process units or joined to an entire process,” said Barry Holtz, president of G-Con Manufacturing.

G-Con’s modular containment units are available through SSB’s Integrated Solutions unit and will be rolled out globally in early 2012.
