Single-Use Systems from Start to Finish July 2010

3 Min Read


Single-use systems have become all the rage in the biotechnology industry, driven largely by the need to reduce cleaning requirements and associated time, validation, and cost factors associated with stainless vessels. A well-developed single-use system will ensure lower risk of contamination in manufacturing while eliminating the cleaning process and cleaning validation.
