The two companies have been collaborating for a considerable amount of time. This collaboration has resulted in the development of IQ/OQ documents for pharmaceutical systems and the execution of product training on the Ecoprime LPLC platform. Even during a hardware and software upgrade of conventional purification systems, the combination of Lewa's expertise in dealing with fluids and procuring spare parts and ATG's deep understanding of customer interests gave rise to synergies between the two companies. "We are pleased that the cooperation with ATG is allowing us to provide our users with seamless service for their pharmaceutical systems," states Gerard Gach, Marketing Director at Lewa Process Technologies. "Our customers now have twice as many service options for their systems: those from Lewa as well as those from the strong team at ATG."
The signing of the agreement coincides with Lewa's launch of a series of new Ecoprime LPLC systems in various configurations for both batch and new continuous chromatography processes. ATG is therefore also the official service provider for the Chromacon Contichrom Cube series, which encompasses FPLC and HPLC benchtop systems. Lewa is currently still working on the complementary Ecoprime Twin process systems for the GMP scale, which are based on the same Contichrom twin column technology patented by Chromacon. ATG is authorized to maintain both the benchtop instruments and the GMP pilot scale as well as the production systems in the area of multicolumn systems.
