Time is of the essence: Creating a new synergy between single-use adopters and suppliers

Time is of the essence: Creating a new synergy between single-use adopters and suppliers

03/21/2017, 3:30 PM - 4:15 PM

Meeting Room 4


Biopharmaceutical companies race to achieve milestones, advance promising molecules, improve productivity and reduce costs. In addition to perfecting the biology, companies must grapple with challenges such as standardization of process technology, supply security and process economics, especially in light of the burgeoning interest and adoption of single-use systems. Efficient implementation of single-use systems is more than incorporating disposable components into the process. It requires a new approach by suppliers of these systems to nimbly and effectively address such challenges. This session will highlight best practices for creating a new synergy between biopharmaceutical companies and single-use suppliers to strike the right balance of design flexibility, supply predictability and reliable lead times necessary to beat the clock. A case study describing a more efficient and practical "bottoms-up" approach to configuring and delivering single-use assemblies will be presented.
