Sartorius Stedim Biotech partners with Umetrics on marketing and distribution of Umetrics portfolio for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), a leading international pharmaceutical and biotech supplier, has entered into a global sales partnership with Umetrics AB, a Swedish software manufacturer. Umetrics is a highly specialized, leading provider of chemometrics software worldwide for modeling and optimizing biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing processes.

The cooperation agreement provides that SSB will assume global marketing and distribution of the complete Umetrics portfolio for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. SSB will integrate Umetrics software programs as private label products into its own bioprocess portfolio and market these as stand-alone solutions under both brands under a dual branding arrangement. Stefan Schlack, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SSB commented: “These software solutions will help our customers to better understand their cell culture processes and to identify potential for optimization and robust process control – an ideal addition to our bioprocess portfolio.”

The major areas of application for these software systems are critical process steps, such as cell culture processes or specific purification steps in the biopharmaceutical industry. Multivariate data analysis (MVA) enables all process parameters to be added in batch trajectories, among other things, so that process variations and their causes can be displayed transparently in real time. DoE software (Design of Experiments) permits these critical process parameters to be efficiently identified and quantified and development cycles to be considerably shortened.

Umetrics stands to benefit from the global sales structures of SSB. “With SSB, we can gain access to substantially more customers thanks to its international reach and solid market standing in the biopharma sector. SSB’s integrated solutions for the complete biopharmaceutical process clearly create added value for our customers. I anticipate that this will considerably boost the biopharmaceutical industry’s interest in and usage of our products,” says Lars Lindstorm, General Manager of Umetrics.
