Single-use global footprint

Global single-use manufacturing optimizes your biopharma production, globally.

Global biopharmaceutical manufacturing that relies on single-use systems demands reliable access to products and assemblies to ensure efficient, on-time manufacturing. With single-use facilities in the Americas, Europe and Asia, Avantor® offers global availability of these vital supplies and assemblies. Partnering with Avantor adds efficiency and reliability to your single-use process needs by leveraging our global supply chain – so therapies can reach the market, and the patients who need treatments, faster.

From mAbs to cell and gene therapy applications, and from upstream to downstream processing and final-fill, Avantor’s single-use solutions help optimize all stages of biopharma manufacturing workflows. Our industry experience gives us the knowledge needed to ensure that our single-use components and assemblies comply with your internal process standards as well as external regulations – locally, regionally and globally.

Predictable and dependable delivery of innovative single-use products and assemblies, paired with our design expertise, enables your team to deploy new systems and solutions that meet the needs of your specific application.

BIOPROCESSING IS GLOBAL—SO IS OUR SINGLE-USE SUPPLY CHAIN

Avantor’s single-use solutions solve fluid handling challenges across many common bioprocessing applications. The portfolio of products available, globally, all meet strict quality and regulatory requirements.

As an open-architecture manufacturer, Avantor lets you choose from a selection of our own single-use products and also access products from best-in-class manufacturers available from our channel brand, VWR. Our global footprint allows us to design a solution that meets the exact needs of your process and ensures that the materials and products are available – with little disruption to supply chain.

Because our single-use capabilities are global, we can pivot to meet your needs no matter where in the world your company’s production sites are located. Our skilled team typically qualifies multiple sources of key components, mitigating the risk to your production schedule. We optimize our manufacturing and production sites, establishing equivalent capabilities and certifications in order to ensure efficient delivery of your single-use system whenever possible.

Our global single-use capabilities include:

Single-use systems are not one-size fits all. We recommend, and work with you to develop, the most ideal single-use system design for your application, including support with prototype and process development.

Our global single-use manufacturing and assembly sites are ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certified and conform to cGMP best practices to help ensure safety, reliability and quality of the products we produce.

Our Quality Risk Management (QRM) program is a proactive approach to assess, control for, review and communicate about, and correct any potential risk to the quality of our single-use assemblies and systems. Our program is applied systemically, from the risk-based audits to understand the capabilities of new suppliers to our internal procedures to assess and mitigate risks in our own processes and facilities.

Our Comprehensive Supplier Management Program vets and qualifies first and second sources of key components to ensure a reliable supply chain, globally.
