Looking back – OPTIMA at IDEA 2019

Three characters, three perspectives. At IDEA 2019 in Miami, Optima Nonwovens looked through the lenses of an operations manager, a plant manager, and a machine operator: Tom, Lisa, and Carl all want to create efficient and robust processes for packaging of paper hygiene products – and yet they each have their own specifications. The animated characters quickly won over hearts and attracted a crowd of visitors to Optima Nonwovens’ trade show booth.

Manual preparation of cells
April 2, 2019

OPTIMA pharma started a cooperation with Charité and the Berlin Institute of Health

Optima Pharma and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin are developing a concept for the automated production and filling of cell and gene therapeutics. These new types of medications are considered a promising new therapy opportunity for incurable cancer and metabolic diseases. They also pave the way for personalized medication. These medications depend on the patient’s cells. They are still produced manually, for each individual patient, which is very expensive. The innovative project is financed by the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH).
