Dual-sourcing and redundant manufacturing capabilities are crucial in a single-use supply chain strategy, but must be applied correctly.

Simple components help maintain physical integrity throughout a bioprocess setup, and single-use components play a role in ensuring a closed system for aseptic processing.

Single-use systems offer a solution to the challenges inherent in buffer preparation, which can be the cause of bottlenecking in bioprocessing.

Single-use systems may offer a suitably flexible solution to the biomanufacturing challenges of cost and time-to-market.

This article provides a review of various 2000-L single-use bioreactors used by biopharmaceutical suppliers for commercial production.

As SUS become prevalent in the biologics industry, the question of safety becomes increasingly important.
