ISPE D/A/CH YP Webinar: Single-Use Technology – Drivers for Successfull Implementation
18. Oktober / 11:00 - 12:30
The demands on biotechnological production of pharmaceutically active compounds differ vastly from traditional chemical ones. Especially, physiological process conditions lead to an increased risk of microbial contamination. These issues have been addressed through implementation of the (current) Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) with its high requirements for sterility and precise documentation of cleaning validation.
Additionally, in recent years, the idea of utilizing Single Use Systems (SUS) as a standard operating platform for biopharmaceutical manufacturing became more and more popular. The use of polymeric compounds rather than stainless steel has lowered the initial investment cost and reduced operating time, thus enabling high degree of flexibility concerning the supply of product.
Simone Biel and Gerrit Priller, Field Marketing Specialists in Single-Use Technology at Merck KGaA, will give an overview of the current state of Single-Use Technologies with an emphasize on key drivers, regulatory landscape and considerations for successful implementation.
