We are a biotech services company that is revolutionising the timelines to clinic and commercialisation for biologics. We do this by rapidly optimising process development using our Ranger technology that dynamically controls the bioreactor environment in real time.
Based on our micro-optical sensing technology and intelligent software control algorithms, we design, engineer, manufacture and support the ground breaking Ranger system that is easy to install and use.
We can trace our origins to work done at the Optical Research Centre of the University of Southampton in the early 2000’s. The founding team, which included Dr Greg Emmerson and Dr Sam Watts, formed Stratophase in 2003. Both remain key members of the company.
During the period 2003 – 2011, we were engaged in a number of government and industry funded projects including oil and gas, defence, healthcare and biotechnology, which enabled us to mature our core micro-optical sensor technology.
Since 2011 we have focused exclusively on the biotechnology sector where it we are delivering products that reduce process development times and improve process yields.
We hold the rights to a number of important patents covering the sensor technology and we continue to innovate.
Our success has also been possible because of our dedicated team of long standing staff whose core expertise in biochemistry, optical microchips and technology, engineering, product development and an intimate understanding of the biopharma sector has been essential. This team of experts along with the support staff of professionals in our finance, HR and strategy units all work together to deliver the company’s aims.
