ABOUT SINGLE USE SUPPORT

Single Use Support is a solution provider of innovative single use technologies for logistics and cold chain processes. At Single Use Support, we have set ourselves the goal to provide the biopharmaceutical industry with solutions that support them in increasing the reliability of storage and shipping and in turn minimizing the loss of valuable high-quality drug substance. On the basis of single use bags, Single Use Support offers biopharma companies access to a new and 100% secure logistics process for liquids.

The innovative process solution provider enables its customers to set up highly robust bulk drug substance freeze/transportation/storage processes for single-use bags, which in turn in creases patient safety and reduces the risk of bio-contamination and product loss. With the utilization of Single Use Support technology, bigger volumes of high-quality substance can be shipped internationally in a faster and absolutely secure manner, and at a lower loading volume.

Single Use Support was founded in 2016 and is based in Kufstein, Austria. At the global headquarters, new products are developed in cooperation with international pharmaceutical companies.

In the past years, Single Use Support GmbH has developed technologies that bridge the gap in handling of biopharmaceuticals. Its entire end-to-end process for biopharma liquid logistics are applicable to various areas, such as bulk drug substance, cell & gene therapies and seed train intensification. The core product RoSS, a single use bag protective shell system developed by Single Use Support, provides the basis for technologies and services around filling, freezing, shipping, storing, thawing and draining regardless of the biopharmaceutical product and the primary packaging used.

FEATURED ARTICLES

  • Decontamination by means of vaporized hydrogen peroxide is commonly used within the pharmaceutical industry. The goal is to keep the bioburden as reduced in microorganisms as possible when handling with bio-decontamination agents. H2O2 – or vaporized hydrogen peroxide disinfects such agents. While being non-toxic, it destroys biological contaminants. In this study, we examine the the resistance of RoSS and Bottle RoSS with its different components against 3% hydrogen peroxide.

  • The Indianapolis-based CDMO has ordered RoSS.FILL CGT to fill lentiviral vectors into small single-use bags. Specially designed for cell and gene therapies, RoSS.FILL CGT is an automated cGMP-compliant filling and filtration platform to dispense small to medium sized volumes of highly valuable drug substances into multiple small single use bags. The technology will be supplied to Genezen’s facility by the end of 2021.

  • Scalability around freezing means the ability to guarantee constant stress on proteins (biopharmaceutical molecules) in all scales, filling volumes and loading scenarios. Read how by standardizing the IFGS – icefront growth speed – for all possible scenarios regardless of the filling volume and type of bags but also regardless of the type of system, i.e. whether LabScale, MidScale or LargeScale, you can fulil this requirement.

  • Less than 0,01% of the plastic waste generated annually worldwide are single-use technologies derived from the biopharma. This portion is subject to strict guidelines, so they’re usually collected, decontaminated and disposed rigorously. Furthermore, manufacturers of single-use technologies are obliged to facilitate the separation of the product into its base materials after use. Therefore, the single-use products are mostly very easy to recycle.

  • The international provider of process solutions for the biopharmaceutical industry, Single Use Support, which was only founded in 2016, is experiencing a massive run on its product innovations.

  • In an extremely complex, competitive and constantly evolving sector such as the biopharmaceutical industry, flexibility is key, not least since it is an immensely varied and compliance-driven field. This is one of the reasons why more and more logistics solutions – covering all steps from filling to freezing, thawing and distribution – are primarily based on single-use technologies. Read more on you can optimize performance and efficiency with single-use technologies.

  • Single-use components might not be considered as the most essential parts in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. However, they are quite capable of temporarily paralyzing the entire production of biopharmaceuticals on-site. Manufacturers need to fuel up the pace as supplies are scarce or being stockpiled in the era of COVID-19 vaccine production levels.

  • Single Use Support wanted to take a closer look into the single use bags when they’re at frozen state. The aim was to visually compare the interfacial stress of frozen single use bags: How does the bag experience stress in two different approaches of freezing, plate-based freezers and conventional static freezers?

  • SUSupport is a leading provider of safe, reliable and user-friendly solutions when it comes to protected storage and/or shipping of highly sensitive and at the same time highly valuable drug substance contained in single use bags. In addition to their flagship product, the RoSS shell, which protects 2D single-use bags of various sizes, the Austrian solution provider has now developed a stainless-steel 3D bag holder that offers reliable protection for all single use bags of up to 1,000 l.

  • In order to comply with the versatile requirements of today’s market, flexibility and the option to customize are key whilst maintaining availability and short lead times. This is true for many areas, not least when it comes to the ever-growing number of single-use technologies utilized in the biopharmaceutical industry.
