Preparing for manufacturing is a complex endeavor, especially when it comes to processing liquids and buffers in the bioprocessing workflow. The resource-intensive nature of solution preparation goes beyond upfront expenses, impacting the total cost of ownership (TCO). Often, inefficiencies, contamination risks, batch failures, and dedicated personnel contribute to hidden costs associated with manufacturing process liquids and buffers.
It is crucial to establish a solid foundation to expedite the path to market and ensure efficiency during scale-up. However, navigating the uncertainties of this process can be challenging. By gaining a deeper understanding of common operational inefficiencies, risks, and financial burdens, it becomes possible to enhance spending visibility and obtain a more accurate assessment of the TCO. In addition to apparent costs such as personnel, equipment, and physical space, the TCO also encompasses hidden expenses like process inefficiencies and quality errors.
Learn how teams can improve visibility and awareness of these hidden costs to empower informed decision-making as the business expands and production demands grow.
