Single-use systems have been widely implemented throughout biopharmaceutical processes in many fluid management applications. The main drivers for this are to improve operational flexibility, eliminate cleaning and cleaning validation, improve safety, and ultimately reduce costs by removing non-value added steps from the process and shortening drug development time. Single-use technologies and systems are now available for more advanced applications, such as tangential flow filtration for concentration and diafiltration and in-process mixing.
Mixing is an essential operation for any biopharmaceutical process such as mAbs, therapeutic proteins or vaccines. Mixing is applied at multiple stages and for many applications within a process.
