ATMI And Finesse Announce Agreement For Integrated Bioprocess Reactor

DANBURY, Conn. and NEW YORK, March 30, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATMI, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATMI) today announced a global distribution agreement with Finesse Solutions, LLC, of San Jose, CA, a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for bioprocess applications. The deal gives ATMI the right to sell Finesse T700 control systems with the ATMI single-use Integrity™ PadReactor TM system. The combined turnkey system will provide the single-use market with a best-in-class, ready-to-use bioreactor platform.

The alliance combines the improved mixing and gas transfer performance of the space-efficient PadReactor system with the industry's leading bioreactor control, archive, and single-use sensor platform, namely, state-of-the-art TruFluor™ sensors for pH and dissolved oxygen and TruTorr™ sensors for pressure. In addition, the integrated system couples ATMI LifeScience's Integrity PadReactor™ system with Finesse's TruViu ® G3 hardware and TruBio ® 4.0 software , which are pre-configured for controlling process parameters such as pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, agitation, gas/liquid flow, and auxiliary analog inputs/loops.

The integrated bioreactor system can be purchased from ATMI in a single transaction with follow-on application and technical support from both ATMI and Finesse. Under the terms of the agreement, ATMI will offer fully-integrated bioreactors for the production of recombinant proteins or vaccines. Additionally, ATMI will provide all post point-of-sale customer support for PadReactor hardware and disposables while Finesse will support the controller, sensors, and software.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of cell culturists, ATMI's PadReactor system is ideally suited to laboratory environments, process development centers, clinical material supply, and flexible GMP-manufacturing. The innovative, cube-shaped bioreactor vessel, which offers comparable functionality to classical stirred-tank bioreactors, is a single-use bag integrating an internal paddle mixing and sparger system. The reactor, available in sizes ranging from 25L to 1200L, has been engineered to work in harmony with Finesse's cGMP-capable, highly configurable software, which features comprehensive functionality combined with easy process configuration and display.
