Single Use Becoming an Established Tool

Vendors' Attention to Users' Requirements and Familiarity Are Driving Increased Implementation

  • As single-use bioprocessing approaches its first decade, integration and standardization are on everyone’s short list of desirable features. Suppliers are responding with significant initiatives to streamline the specification, acquisition, assembly, and deployment of disposable equipment.

    Getting plastic components to work together with a minimum of validation has always been a priority. Now, it appears, acceptance may have reached a critical point and vendors are doing all they can to facilitate decision making by reducing or eliminating the interoperability question.

    At IBC Life Sciences’ upcoming “Single Use Applications for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing,” a number of presenters will make their case for specific systems, components, or approaches that reflect their vision of the disposables marketplace.
