For pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers, scaling up production has typically meant large, 5000+ liter stainless steel bioreactors for the process. These require cleaning and sterilization between batches. Market demands are driving the need for more flexibility with smaller batches. Single-use technologies (SUT) are being applied to bioreactors to address these demands and reduce the cost […]
