So what is a single-use system? This long asked question has left many members of the pharmaceutical industry scratching their heads.
What is a single-use system?
In a bid to protect follicles, the Parenteral Drug Association has published new research designed to clarify single-use.
The PDA’s Technical Report 66: Application of Single-Use Systems in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing define single-use systems as:
“An engineer process and equipment solution, most commonly assembled from components made using polymeric materials which together creates a system or unit operation design for time campaign use.”
The PDA’s report was detailed at Pharma IQ’s 7th annual Disposable Solutions for Biomanufacturing Conference in Munich, Germany.
