Pharma Industry Report: Single Use & Disposable Technologies for Biomanufacturing 2013
Pharma Industry Series: Disposable Solutions for Biomanufacturing - Special Report 2013
The last 10 years has seen a surge in the use of single-use and disposable systems for the production of biopharmaceuticals, initially in early stage products, but increasingly in commercial products. Exclusively revealing the results of a Pharma IQ industry-wide survey, almost a quarter of respondents say their number one goal for 2013 is to move single use systems from development into commercial use, and 45% cited cost savings as the biggest factor for doing so.
However, understanding the limitations of disposable equipment and the issue of validation appear to be the greatest challenges for end users who are looking at scaling up for commercial use.
So the question the industry is now asking is where will technology go in the future? And how can new innovations and possibilities with this kind of technology be applied to improve development and manufacturing platforms?
