Bioprocess Development Engineering

Proven Track Record in Project Timeline Reduction: Decouple Process Design From Facility Design

We provide a unique implementation methodology for your bioprocess using single-use technologies wherever possible and hybrid solutions as appropriate for your type & scale of process. Our teams develop the layout, workflow and design of your process based upon your single-use equipment selection. In parallel to your facility build, we design, test and qualify all single-use technologies used within your process, thus significantly improving your speed-to-market.

How do we add value to our customers?

  •     Early phase consultancy and process development services
  •     Facility and conceptual layout capabilities
  •     Facility cost estimation capabilities
  •     Feasibility studies
  •     Implementation support
  •     Service Contracts ensuring optimum process performance and reliability

Consulting Expertise to Drive Efficient Process Development

Our Process Development team will work with you from pre-clinical through phases I & II to optimize your process before design and technology choices are locked-down. We use unique modeling and multi scenario analysis tools to streamline process design and technology options, ensuring you achieve the highest productivity and lowest cost of goods.

Design Considerations

Working with single-use closed systems; our team can downsize higher classification clean room areas. For example, large-volume support solutions can be stationed in a CNC (Controlled Non-Classified) environment and fed through the wall using a transfer hatch into the higher classification areas. With a Single Use based design, ISO7 and ISO8 clean room surfaces can be reduced by an average of 20%. Clean room volumes can be decreased by over 25% as a result of being able to lower the ceiling heights that are typically required for stainless steel bioreactors, and HVAC systems can be downsized by an average of 33%.

Integrate into your Automation Infrastructure

Critical Success Factors for Facility and Process Automation

Mitigate the risk of producing faulty batches through state-of the-art process control. Sartorius provides flexible automation platforms to match your specific requirements, such as Sartorius Proprietary Solutions and Industrial Solutions.

There is no single automation standard in the pharmaceutical industry. Sartorius strictly follows the GAMP5 principles of the V-model in our process automation implementation. Clearly defined user requirements specifications enable our automation engineers to develop functional specifications for hardware and software design qualification.

Sartorius Stedim Biotech is now collaborating with Siemens in the area of automation. Have a look at the new Bioprocess automation platform Sartorius Stedim Biotech will feature in the future with Siemens as preferred supplier. The modular open architecture platform is specifically designed for single-use unit operations. Key functionalities include a flexible integration into existing and new SCADA and DCS systems such as Emersons DeltaV and Rockwell as well as Siemens PCS 7 and Batch. Integration is possible at “Recipe Level”, “PLC Level” and “Remote I/O Level”.
