Sartorius Stedim Biotech, Penn State University PartnerBy
Sartorius Stedim Biotech, a Goettingen, Germany-headquartered supplier for the biopharmaceutical industry, and Penn State University have partnered to advance multidisciplinary teaching and research in biotechnology.
Part of Sartorius’ investment will be to enhance a fermentation facility that will play a role in Penn State’s Center of Excellence in Industrial Biotechnology (CoEIB). Sartorius will provide technologies, and a central laboratory within the fermentation facility will be named the Sartorius Fermentation Gallery.
Sartorius has been supporting Penn State for more than a year in designing the new lab space and in equipping it based on the latest technologies.
The fermentation facility is one of ten core facilities in Penn State’s Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences and the foundation of Penn State’s biotechnology effort. This effort includes the CoEIB. The CoEIB provides a focal point for Penn State’s programs in the area of industrial biotechnology, including the development of research and educational initiatives focused, among other areas, on biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
