Covid-19 Impact On Bioprocessing: PART 2 Fears To Be Addressed Due To Covid-19

By Eric Langer, Kamna Jhamb, and Ronald Rader

Vial analysis

We follow up our Part 1 discussion of the impact of Covid-19 on bioprocessing, based on our recent White Paper that is also included in our research. We interviewed major biopharmaceutical industry senior bioprocessing decision-makers, and bioprocessing suppliers in the US and Europe. The impact on emerging biopharma companies as well as smaller suppliers may actually be a small silver-lining for some, during this global, horrific event.  The demand on the industry segment for capacity, support and services has trickled down from the largest suppliers to the mid-tier, and even smaller providers of equipment, services, diagnostics, reagents, devices and capacity. For those on the front lines of bioprocessing, our interviews report some of the key fears, and options for their resolution that may result in a future “new normal” for bioprocessing. Worsening shortage of single-use technologies and is a key fear that will require resolution. Already there are long wait times for many single-use supplies, and these will likely lengthen (for non-pandemic response-related projects).
