An area ripe for standardization is the use of genderless connections, those in which the connector halves are identical in design. Historically, single-use connections have involved male and female halves, but using two different parts can create several inefficiencies and complications, such as

  • Increased ordering complexity

  • Greater risk of specifying the wrong system or connection, resulting in downtime and last-minute adjustments

  • Longer lead times

  • Increased stocking requirements

  • Streamlined operations with easy to use, robust sterile connections

  • More flexibility and decreased bottlenecks with on-site connector assembly

  • Reduced overhead costs, freeing up capital for other projects.

Overall, genderless connector standardization will help bioprocessing facilities simplify their operations and implement single-use technology to its full potential.
