Single use technology

Single-use, sterile disposable technologies (also referred to as biodisposable technologies or SUTs) are available in many formats and confer various advantages for pharmaceutical manufacturers. They comprise products generally manufactured from plastic polymers via the processes of injection moulding, extruding and blow moulding.

Single-use disposable items are most commonly used in aseptic processing as a contamination control measure. The applications include devices for making aseptic connections, sampling devices, mixing devices, product-hold bags and disposable manifold systems.

In relation to this technology, Tim Sandle has written an article for Cleanroom Technology. The reference is:

Sandle, T. (2013). Single-use technology for biopharma, Cleanroom Technology, December 2013, pp27-28

Dr. Sandle has also examined the advantages of single-use technology and some of the testing requirements for the Clean Air and Containment Review:
