Notes to Editors
Solentim enables its life science industry customers to develop a greater number of more effective pharmaceuticals to help patients live healthier, for longer. We do this through designing and manufacturing highly innovative instruments that facilitate the process of commercial cell line development. This phase of biopharmaceutical production is a high-value process which is intrinsically expensive and time-consuming. Our solutions significantly shorten the upstream cell line development workflow process and therefore make drug production faster and more cost effective. Our products; Cell Metric® and VIPS™ represent the next generation of single cell printing and provide documented proof of monoclonality for the FDA and other regulatory bodies. Five of the world’s top ten pharmaceutical companies use Solentim products. Established in 2010 and with global headquarters in Dorset, UK; the organisation employs over 40 people across the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA.
