  1. Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Single-Use Technologies
    12/6/2016

    Single-use technologies offer an attractive option for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, but their environmental impact needs be considered.

  2. How To Boost Profits With Single-Use Powder Transfer In Biopharma
    10/1/2016

    Systems should be analyzed not only for their basic ability to contain the powders of interest, but also for how efficiently they integrate into the production process. For instance, will the system help to eliminate productivity bottlenecks, decrease material waste and the cost of raw materials, and simplify the changeover of the line to new products?

  3. Biomanufacturers: How To Reduce The Complexity Of Custom Single-Use Assemblies
    9/28/2016

    Based on a discussion with Guy Matthews, market development manager with Parker dominick hunter.

  4. Single-Use vs Stainless: An Economic Microbial Fermentation Comparison
    8/9/2016

    In this case study, we compare production capacity and process economy between stainless steel and single-use equipment in microbial processes. Economy simulations were based on an E. coli Dab process. Production scenarios in both single- and multi-product facilities were considered.

  5. Accelerating Biopharmaceutical Development From DNA To Drug
    7/8/2016

    The pipeline of biopharmaceutical drugs is rich and becoming increasingly diverse. Many new biologic modalities are being developed as established therapeutic classes move through their lifecycle. Wide arrays of different types of molecules are expected to coexist within product portfolios and manufacturing networks. It is clear that this will have a significant impact on manufacturing facilities. Strategies need to be developed to prepare facilities for these challenges.

  6. Implementing Single-Use At Bioprocessing’s Core
    5/20/2016

    Expansions and renovations to existing biological facilities, and construction of new facilities, provide a unique opportunity to rethink basic design strategies and use new technologies to build a better facility that will improve compliance. One of the biggest drivers in the current evolution of biological facility design is the implementation of single-use systems (SUS).

  7. The Standardization Of Single-Use Components For Bioprocessing
    1/20/2016

    As single-use systems become more widely adopted, the focus in the bioprocessing industry is shifting from acceptance of the technology to standardization. While the standardization discussion encompasses many topics (including how products are tested, assembled, etc.), components are a critical area for improvement. With so many ways to apply single-use and hybrid bioprocessing systems, organizations must take action to standardize equipment in order to streamline operations and help reach the full potential of the technology.

  8. Single-Use Standardization: Is It Holding Back The Biopharma Industry?
    6/1/2015

    The data from BioPlan Associates’ 12th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Capacity and Production speaks to the industry’s ongoing desires for standardization in single-use devices. As usage of these disposable devices increases, the gap between the importance of standardization and end-users’ satisfaction with their supplier’s standardization efforts has steadily been worsening. 

  9. Gaining Efficiency Through Faster Integration of Single-Use Products
    9/24/2013

    Considered a full-service integrator of products in the biopharmaceutical industry, Saint-Gobain offers an online platform that improves their efficiencies to design single-use products by creating a 3-dimensional product drawing.
