The Disposable Facility and Single-Use Technology – a Solution or a Revolution?

Presented by

Dr Joachim Walter and Jerold Martin

About this talk

Over the last decade the application of disposables and single-use equipment has become increasingly popular. There is however a continuous discussion going on regarding the advantages and disadvantages versus a conventional stainless steel environment. Reviewing the vast literature available on this topic it becomes pretty clear that there is no single and simple argument pro or contra which could be taken as a decisive answer. It needs to be analysed in which environment, at what condition and for what purpose disposables and single-use equipment is being used. This presentation reviews and illustrates the very different arguments for the application of equipment as a consumable, including advantages and limitations of single-use technology, understanding improvement of process robustness, contribution to lean production as well as environmental impact of disposables, finally culminating in the question if this way of processing is a solution to improve biomanufacturing economy – or if it is even a revolution regarding process feasibility and elimination of constraints.
