Businesses and Customers Benefit From New Partnerships
Posted on September 1st, 2017 by Prima Sung in Pharma R&D
Now more than ever, even some of the largest companies are seeking out partnerships, finding advantages in them for both businesses, while also providing greater value for customers and the industry as a whole. One such company is MilliporeSigma, a life science and biotech business owned by Merck KGaA, which is now expanding its reach with a couple of important collaborations. One involves opening up its distribution alliance with Public Health England further to include the European Bank for induced pluripotent Stem Cells, while the other is sharing its data with users of Elsevier’s chemistry database, Reaxys.
The partnership with Elsevier will integrate MilliporeSigma’s chemical products into Reaxys, giving users access to 43,000 of the company’s compounds and chemicals—and the ability to purchase them directly through an easy, time-saving process. MilliporeSigma initially came to Elsevier with the idea of partnering, and it was soon clear to both organizations that it would be a good match of “values, mission and customer focus,” according to Director of Chemistry Solutions at Elsevier, Christian Böhm. Both partners see this as a first step to what will likely include other forms of collaboration in the future.
