Corning and Sartorius Stedim Biotech will co-market a range of cell-culture products through a combined product catalog and will work together on numerous marketing and sales initiatives. The companies also are exploring best options and approaches for future R&D efforts and joint product development.
A combined cell-culture product catalog for North America is already available, with additional regional catalogs to follow soon, the firms note.
“As competitive pressures in the cell-culture industry continue to evolve and increase, it is critical that we are able to offer customers a full range of cell-culture laboratory products spanning basic research to full-scale production,” says Thomas Appelt, vp and GM, Corning Life Sciences.
The collaboration will build off the companies’ existing relationship and will take effect immediately.
