A Practical Guide to Single Use Technologies

4-week online academy | 1 hour per week

1 - 29 April 2019

Online Academy

Single use technologies are an increasingly popular method of biopharmaceutical manufacturing. They differ from traditional biopharmaceutical process systems in that they are disposed of after use rather than cleaned of CIP’d (clean-in-place). High costs, heavy reliance on vendors and storage limitations mean you must decide if single use technologies are worth the investment, whether you are a new or established manufacturer considering the transition from stainless steel facilities.

This course will provide you with the answers to these challenges over the course of 4 weeks. You will gain a comprehensive insight into the fundamentals of using single use technologies and conduct an in-depth analysis of their key benefits and limitations. This benefit – risk assessment will enable you to make an informed decision regarding the use of single use technologies in your organisation.

  • Familiarise yourself with single use technologies, their different uses and Industry 4.0
  • Gain a comprehensive insight into the facility requirements needed to integrate single use technologies into your manufacturing process
  • Understand the key regulatory requirements applicable to single use technologies
  • Critically analyse the benefits of single use technologies against stainless steel facilities
  • Conduct a benefit – risk assessment to find out how single use technologies can be beneficial to your institution
