The Two Divisions of Sartorius
Innovative Technologies Enable Medical Progress
A growing number of medications are biopharmaceuticals. These are produced using living cells in complex, lengthy and expensive procedures. The Bioprocess Solutions Division provides the essential products and technologies to accomplish this. In fact, Sartorius has been pioneering and setting the standards for single-use products that are currently used throughout all biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes.
Sartorius in Facts and Figures
Making Lab Life Easier
Lab work is complex and demanding: Despite repetitive analytical routines, lab staff must perform each step in a highly concentrated and careful way for accurate results. The Lab Products and Services Division helps lab personnel excel because its products, such as laboratory balances, pipettes and lab consumables, minimize human error, simplify workflows and reduce physical workloads.
Sartorius is investing in its research and development and in its sales structures, as well as further expanding its portfolio through alliances and acquisitions to continue to grow sustainably and profitably in the future as well. At the focus of these activities are the high-growth markets in North America and Asia.
From University Mechanician to a Global Player
For over 140 years Sartorius has been accomplishing in utilizing the latest scientific expertise to manufacture innovative products. It all started at the University of Goettingen when former “university mechanician” Florenz Sartorius laid the cornerstone for the company. In 1870, Sartorius went into business by setting up his precision mechanical workshop, "Feinmechanische Werkstatt F. Sartorius." His pioneering invention – the short-beam analytical balance – revolutionized work in research labs.
In 1927, together with the chemistry Nobel Prize Laureate Richard Zsigmondy, Sartorius established the limited liability company “Membranfiltergesellschaft mbH”. The membranes invented by Zsigmondy were the basis for the development of membrane filtration – and for today’s bioprocess business at Sartorius. Even to this day, weighing and filtration are the core technologies within Sartorius’s wide product array.
