- Freeslate’s Biologics Formulation System Selected by Sanofi Pasteur to Improve Efficiency of Formulation Development
Product News: Freeslate’s Biologics Formulation System Selected by Sanofi Pasteur to Improve Efficiency of Formulation DevelopmentFreeslate, Inc., the leading provider of high throughput research solutions, today announced that Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi, has purchased Freeslate’s Biologics Formulation System, a comprehensive solution for accelerating research in vaccine and protein formulation development. The system automates sample preparation, sample stressing, and formulation analysis, allowing for the development of stable, robust formulations significantly faster with reduced API consumption.
Based on the Freeslate Core Module 3 (CM3) automation platform, the Biologics Formulation System combines liquid dispense and controlled heating/cooling/mixing with new automated measurements of pH, viscosity, and particle counting. Integrated by Freeslate’s Lab Execution and Analysis (LEA) software suite, the system provides intuitive experiment design and allows for the control and data integration of a range of third party analytics including Dynamic Light Scatter (DLS), UV/VIS plate readers, and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), maximizing R&D productivity.
“We are excited to be selected by a global leader in vaccines and are pleased they recognize the value our tools bring to the advancement of formulation development,” said John S. Senaldi, President and CEO of Freeslate. “As demonstrated by the adoption of our systems in Europe and across the globe, combinatorial approaches to vaccine formulation development can significantly accelerate productivity.”
Freeslate has built strong capabilities around automated solutions addressing the complex problems of drug development. The company’s products enable customers to better manage capacity by performing and assessing formulations, minimize later stage reformulations by exploring a broader analytical space early in development, and manage data from orthogonal analytics to help drive informed decision making.
