Key advantages associated with single-use technology include reduced risk of cross-contamination, lower capital expenditure, and flexibility in accommodating changing consumer needs.
Single-use and distributed scenarios are more likely if smaller product quantities are required.
Single-use technologies for commercial bioprocessing can provide significant benefits in terms of cost and time reduction.
Efficiency gains with intelligent biomanufacturing have tremendous potential to further advance the benefits of single-use manufacturing.
The long arm of GigaGen is reaching out for antibodies of interest. Combining microfluidics, genomics, and protein library engineering, the company is looking to do more than round up the usual suspects.
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) isn’t so basic, given its sensitivity to heat. But a stable recombinant bFGF, from Thermo Fisher, can simplify cell culture workflows and improve 2D and 3D culture results.
