Optimizing single-use manufacturing through associate training
How a new training room at Avantor Fluid Handling is ensuring the reliability and quality of your single-use systems
The rapid acceptance of single-use systems, comprised of single-use technology, has introduced efficiencies into manufacturing workflows but also a new set of challenges to overcome. Today, most therapeutics use some degree of single-use technology in their processes—whether in development or commercialization phases—and single-use manufacturers must expand their global footprints to meet global demand. However, even with redundancy of suppliers and facilities, manufacturers—and, by extension, their customers—face substantial risks if manufacturing errors disrupt workflows or yield product that does not meet standards. Avantor’s training program for associates working in cleanrooms is helping to reduce manufacturing errors and increase the reliability of our single-use supply chain.
To maximize throughput for customers by reducing contamination risks and limiting changeover times, as well as by enabling scale-up, single-use technology manufacturers must maintain a reliable supply chain while ensuring that single-use systems meet rigorous quality standards for component qualification, manufacturing operations, in-process testing and final product release.
