Increased availability of therapies for rare diseases alongside newfound societal demands, like the ageing population, has pushed the global biopharmaceuticals industry to expand at an extraordinary rate. Biopharmaceuticals offer highly effective action against illnesses that were once considered untreatable, with fewer side effects and the potential for an actual cure.
To meet this rising demand from existing and developing markets, a greater diversity of drugs needs to be produced on a global scale, while balancing increased scrutiny from the public and regulatory authorities. Today, biopharma production facilities face unprecedented component supply risk for production.
If you are involved in drugs and therapeutics production, you will recognize both the need for improved efficiency and the challenges presented by regulatory, legal and logistical limitations. However, now that the technology is coming into maturity, there is potential for easier transition to Single-Use Technology (SUT) and an increased scope for its implementation.
Masterflex® and Cole-Parmer® have developed a range of solutions that illustrate the fundamentals of Single-Use Technology and enable participants to make informed decisions when selecting equipment for their next process.
