Development of next-generation single-use films for optimal performance in biomanufacturing
The application of single-use systems for manufacturing biopharmaceuticals has become more widely adopted in recent years with single-use vessels now utilized in every process operation from upstream to down. At the heart of single-use systems is the plastic film from which they are made. The materials of construction must be consistent, biocompatible, chemically inert, and have a low level of extractables. Typically, multilayer films are required in order to meet the performance demands for use in bioprocess applications. This presentation focuses on the importance of resin selection and film architecture on achieving critical to quality attributes for the design of a bioprocess film.
