TetraScience, the Scientific Data Cloud company, and Körber, the global leader in Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and integrated solutions, have entered into a partnership to make available previously unachievable insights, facilitating enhanced operational efficiency within the biopharmaceutical manufacturing process.

"Körber's PAS-X Savvy provides powerful analysis and modeling capabilities for the full biopharmaceutical production life cycle," said Simon Meffan-Main, Ph.D., VP, Tetra Partner Network. "Our partnership, for the first time, allows lab and manufacturing control data to be visualized, analyzed, and reported, accelerating process transfer, development, and increasing quality/yield in manufacturing. The combination of Tetra's Scientific Data Cloud™ and advanced analytics enables biopharmaceutical customers to innovate in bioprocessing.”

Körber offers software solutions dedicated to the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and cell and gene therapy industries, including the PAS-X MES Suite, the world-leading Manufacturing Execution System. PAS-X Savvy uniquely combines bioprocess domain knowledge into an intuitive, easy-to-use SaaS that analyzes, interprets, and predicts across multiple unit operations, including the use of real-time digital twins. Additionally, PAS-X Savvy automates report generation facilitating knowledge retention and transfer.
