    Disposables avoid cross contamination, allow more flexibility, and usually represent an economical alternative, according to Sartorius Stedim Biotech.

    “In bioprocessing, affordability figures into an equation in which we balance the cost of an innovative product versus the efficiency that it delivers,” Uwe Gottschalk, Ph.D., vp for purification technology at Sartorius Stedim Biotech, explained.

    “Consumers have seen how rapidly semiconductor technology has gone down in price over the years, while delivering more rapid performance. The biotech community expects to see the same dynamics in bioprocessing tools. The extent that we can deliver such improvements will go a long way toward the goal of making biotherapeutics affordable.”
