Is Standardization Possible in a Custom Single-use World?

Sponsored by: Parker Hannifin

Focused on:

  • Standardization
  • Single Use Design

Date: 22 June


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Opportunities for standardization in single-use

The benefits of single-use are well understood and include reduced CAPEX, reduced validation burden, minimizing cross contamination risks and speed. However, sometimes the speed part gets lost during the design phase of a project as a custom system is designed then redesigned, or unique custom parts are added. This ultimately puts pressure on the project time line giving the impression that single-use can be slow to implement.

During this webinar we will discuss where the opportunities for standardization are and what (if any) compromises this may require. We will also discuss what standard systems could look like in the future as well as the need to standardize the quality profile of systems, from the certificate of analysis to extractable and leachable information.

We will present the lessons learnt from our own design processes and how these lessons can be used to ensure that the design phase of a single-use project does not impact negatively on the project time line.

Register now for this webinar to start realizing all the benefits of single-use – including speed.

Guy Matthews,

Market Development Manager

Guy Matthews has worked in the biopharm industry for the last 20 years starting his career as a Scientist at a well-known CMO in the UK before moving to more commercial roles. During this time he has been involved in many projects implementing single-use technology in both upstream and downstream bioprocessing.

Guy now works as Market Development Manager (Life Sciences) for Parker domnick hunter where he is focused on bringing Parker's expertise in motion and control to bioprocessing, to create robust solutions in single-use technology to enable customers to improve the quality and accessibility of biopharmaceuticals.
