For over 10 years, single-use technology (SUT) has been a growing buzzword in the biomanufacturing industry for its advantages in speed, flexibility, and cost. A recent 2015 BioPlan Associates, Inc. industry survey of biopharmaceutical manufacturers, contract manufacturing organizations, industry vendors, and direct material suppliers identified the ‘Top Concerns’ for why biopharmaceutical manufacturers are choosing to increase their use of disposables. The top three reasons were (i) Eliminates cleaning requirements, (ii) Reduces time to get facility up and running, and (iii) Reduces capital investment in facility & equipment. These reasons are no surprise, as elimination of steam in place (SIP) and clean in place (CIP) allows for a reduction of required piping and controls, which in turn significantly decreases capital costs, design engineering, and field installation times. While these are some of SUT’s core drivers, their validity among that of many additional drivers have already been analyzed and proven at length. Perhaps the more interesting reasons for the continued focus on SUT are the growing industry trends towards modular flexible facilities and lean manufacturing. In order to adapt towards more targeted therapies for niche populations, biopharmaceutical manufacturers will need to produce multiple high potency products, with greater changeovers, and at smaller batch sizes.4 By significantly reducing capital outlay, disposable modular facilities allow for both product and geographical manufacturing flexibility. Production is thus enabled at a lowered associated risk wherever assets are best utilized and production costs minimized, such as in emergent markets.
