Powder Handling Challenges in Upstream Biopharmaceutical Processes

For years pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers have invested in rigid stainless-steel equipment for upstream bioprocessing. With new and innovative single-use products now on the market, manufacturers have access to flexible, safe solutions that offer a myriad of advantages over the traditional solutions. Single-use technology offers less risk of contamination, more operator safety, and less negative environmental impact than the stainless-steel alternatives. In this podcast, we will discuss the challenges associated with handling powders in upstream biopharm processes and how single-use technology can benefit manufacturers from an environmental, cost, and safety perspective.
