Dual-sourcing and redundant manufacturing capabilities are crucial in a single-use supply chain strategy, but must be applied correctly.
As single-use systems (SUS) have increasingly been implemented in GMP biopharmaceutical production, supply-chain assurance for SUS materials, components, and assemblies has become even more important. Dual-sourcing and redundant manufacturing capabilities are crucial in a single-use supply chain strategy.
