Getinge, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a leading global provider of products and systems that contribute to quality enhancement and cost efficiency within healthcare and life sciences. In 2020, Getinge acquired Applikon, a world leader in advanced bioreactor systems development. Applikon bioreactors are used in the pharmaceutical industry for producing vaccines, antibodies, tissues, biopharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and biosimilars. In industrial biotechnology, Applikon bioreactors are used for producing enzymes, food additives, animal feed supplements, bio-fuel, bio-chemicals and bioplastics.
With the addition of Applikon Biotechnology, Getinge product development teams committed resources to explore engineering solutions for a seamless, pre-validated combination of multi-use bioreactor design and unique labware washer loading rack configuration to prepare the bioreactor for sterilization.
After developing and testing a system solution, Getinge retained OffWhite to develop a content marketing piece.
A white paper was created by OffWhite Marketing. The white paper serves as a guide of best practices to help customers ensure repeatability in bioreactor washing, outline step-by-step loading, and communicate the benefits of automated washing.
