Food and Ingredients: An A-Z Product Portfolio
Only Sartorius can supply a full range of instruments, consumables and analytical software
Our outstanding track record in the pharma/biotech sector puts us in a prime position to fully support the food biotech industry. In particular our product range is 100% applicable to food products where there is a focus on proteins, colorants, additives and aromas and, indeed, where microorganisms and mammalian cells are key – for instance, cultured meat. The solutions required, including data analytics software, are pretty much equivalent to those needed for drugs and vaccines. We are the only supplier that can truly call ourselves a ‘one-stop shop’ for the rapidly developing this highly competitive market.
In addition, a recent acquisition makes us leaders in protein purification for the baby food market. A one-stop shop, with the scrupulously high standards and regulatory knowledge gained from the pharma/biopharma industry, is not so much a luxury as a necessity. It’s a race. Time to market and optimization are both vital. Sartorius will get you there not only faster but also more cost-effectively.
- Expertise in the cultivation and purification technology required for microorganisms and mammalian cell cultures
- Data analytics software to ensure optimum processes and actionable insights
- A complete range of single-use containers and consumables
- Leaders in protein purification
Complete Scalable Bioreactor Platform From Strain & Process Development to Commercial Manufacturing
Fermentation in the Food and Beverage industry comes with its own set of challenges: strain development, sterility, feeding strategy, process control optimization. All of these require precision and constant supervision. Sartorius’ unique technologies offer solutions for all of them. Our experience, our range of products and our new developments for your processes will help you achieve a faster time to market, better yields and lower costs of production.
Sartorius supports you with a fully scalable range of single or multi-use bioreactor solutions. The array of automated multi-parallel mini bioreactors and classic benchtop bioreactors supports fast and reliable development and characterization of your processes throughout all phases. Seamless transfer to pilot and production scale bioreactors are ensured by our thorough understanding of bioreactor design and scale-up principles, well-thought-out automation concepts and harmonized control strategies for oxygen, pH, temperature and feed addition.
Our single use technologies provide a quick setup and turnaround as well as an ease of use and flexibility that no reusable technology can match.
Our range of fermenters and bioreactors have been used to great effect for microbial applications (animal, bacterial and fungal cell culture) and the production of enzymes, probiotics, sweeteners, additives (vitamins, amino acids), cultured foods (meats, seafood), dairy products (proteins) and beverages.
Our bioreactors can be used in batch, fed-batch and continuous processes.

Many products often associated with bioprocessing have long been used in the F&B industry, for example, chromatography for purification of milk and whey proteins, and TFF for processing of beer, wine and juices. Even microcarriers, used for culturing of adherent cells, have found their way to the cutting edge of food technology, for the expansion of bovine myocytes for cultured meat production.
Large-Scale Purification of Lactoferrin and Lactoperoxidase
The macroporous cation exchanger SPEC 70 SLS is an acrylic polymer resin with 260-600 µm particles, allowing efficient mass transfer and high capacity for macromolecules at excellent flow rates and low back pressure.
The hydrophilic resin avoids non-specific interactions and offers high microbial resistance. SPEC 70 SLS has been widely used for the production of lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase from milk or sweet whey at 1,500 – 2,000 L scale for more than 20 years and is approved by the FDA for the use with a Food Contact Substance (Food Contact Notification (FCN) number: 000325).
