Single-use technology


"In the biopharmaceutical industry, single-use technology is rapidly replacing the age-old practice of reusing the devices after decontamination. Adoption of the new practice is economic, it saves time, and most importantly– it eliminates the risk of contamination. This article introduces the subject, describes the types of systems available and touches upon the primary method of sterilising them (by irradiation)."

This is taken from an introductory article by Tim Sandle into single-use disposable sterile technology as used within the pharmaceutical industry. The article has been published in the magazine Industry 2.0.

The article can be read on-line here.
