Updating Biologics Manufacturing: Using Modern, Single-Use Powder Handling Reduces Time to Market and the Chance of Contamination

Biopharmaceutical companies are striving to produce biologics more efficiently with a lower cost point and fewer employees. Most small-scale media and buffer operations are carried out with small bottles of liquid media. But as processes are scaled up to manufacturing levels, that is no longer a viable option. Costs of shipping liquid are simply prohibitive, so the industry has migrated to using media and buffers in powder form. In fact, 90% of cell culture media and buffers for sale is now in powder form, which needs to be hydrated, mixed, and packaged to be used in bioprocesses. This “just in time” hydration allows for increased compliance and process efficiency.
