Sartorius Stedim Biotech and Bosch Announce Global Collaboration
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), an international pharma and biotech supplier, and Bosch Packaging Technology (Bosch), a provider of process technology and packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, announced a long-term global partnership agreement.
The agreement covers the mutual design and development of single-use filling solutions to be used on Bosch's aseptic filling equipment for final fill-and-finish operations of drug products. SSB will provide Bosch with pre-configured single-use filling transfer sets, consisting of bags, filters, tubing and connectors. Bosch will combine them with its aseptic filling and barrier isolation technology into new, innovative systems for aseptic filling, and exclusively market, distribute and service these new filling systems under its own brand name.
The new product line PreVAS (Pre-Validated, Pre-Assembled, Pre-Sterilized) will be launched at Achema 2012.
