Disposable equipment

By Joy Le Pree |

Not long ago, single-use bioprocessing equipment, such as disposable bags and tubing, appeared on the scene as an alternative to stainless-steel components for high-purity processing applications. Due to a fistful of benefits — including reduced costs, lower cross-contamination risk and increased flexibility — the use of disposables began to grow into a real trend among high-purity processors, especially those in the biopharmaceutical industry. With about 20% of the industry currently incorporating single-use components into at least one part of their processes, more and more processors are looking into the benefits, as well as the disposal drawbacks, and trying to decide whether single-use components and systems are right for them. A growing trend Laboratory and clinical use in the biotech and biopharmaceutical industries currently accounts for the largest use of disposable technology, according to Bryan Downer, solutions expert with sanitary-system-design firm CSI (Springfield, Mo.). “Use in these biotech applications makes a lot of sense because there are a lot of change outs, and disposables allow this to be done quickly and efficiently,” notes Downer. Also, he explains, there’s not a lot of cost…
