8571_single-vs-multilayer-wp

Focusing on materials that enable single-layer storage solutions, this paper looks at plastic storage bags for bioprocessing applications, their challenges, and technology developments to address these challenges.


Now more than ever, speed and flexibility are critical to succeed in the bioprocessing market. The first company to patent a process for a particular drug product reaps the most benefit. The use of polymeric bioprocessing components and systems provides the required speed to evaluate many more possibilities and get to the successful one quicker. 

This paper takes a closer look at plastic storage bags for bioprocessing applications, the challenges associated with them, and technology developments to address these challenges. Specifically, it focuses on materials that enable a shift from multilayer to single-layer storage solutions.
