Fluid handling systems — from transfer assemblies and tubing to bags and pumps — are not one size fits all. We recommend, and work with you to develop, the most ideal system design for your application, including support with prototype and process development.
End-to-end global support
Global fluid handling manufacturing and logistics optimizes your biopharma production in upstream, downstream and fill & finish processes.
Avantor® offers end-to-end fluid management systems – including Masterflex® peristaltic pumps and aseptic fluid transfer solutions – that support every stage of your biomanufacturing process, at any location worldwide. Our global network of ISO-certified, cGMP manufacturing and distribution facilities across the Americas, Europe and Asia ensures a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain, with access to the most comprehensive library of quality products available.
The unavailability of parts or components isn’t the only type of disruption manufacturers face: If single-use systems are produced but cannot be safely or consistently implemented in cGMP manufacturing environments, then the drug manufacturer can face an impact that is just as — if not more — severe than having delays stem from missing parts.
Partnering with Avantor adds efficiency, consistency and security across all biopharma workflows, so therapies can reach the market, and the patients who need treatments, faster.
Customers turn to Avantor time and again because their unique needs and challenges are solved by our personalized approach to system design. Through upstream and downstream to fill and finish, our fluid handling solutions fit your process and your quality requirements for a world-class customer experience.
Largest qualified portfolio of premium products
Avantor has the largest library of qualified fluid handling components, leveraging industry-wide technologies strategically developed by experts that understand the industry. As an open-architecture manufacturer, Avantor lets you choose from a selection of our own solutions as well as access products from best-in-class manufacturers available from our channel brand, VWR.
Our effective use of vetted, quality single-use products and pumps, coupled with our global footprint, creates agile processes that allow innovation to succeed.
From monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to cell and gene therapy applications, and from discovery to delivery, we integrate the right products into a fluid handling system that is reliable, repeatable and available on demand.
Single-use supply chain success
Flexible and cost-effective, single-use technologies offer biopharmaceutical companies a way to transform their biologics production and meet the growing demand for these life-changing therapies.
Our global fluid handling capabilities include:
Engineering expertise that helps solve your team’s specific challenges
Consistent manufacturing processes following cGMP and ISO best practices
Our global fluid handling 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.
Quality programs that continually manage potential risks to product quality
Our Quality Risk Management (QRM) program is a proactive approach to assess, control for, review and correct any potential risk to the quality of our fluid handling assemblies and systems. Our program is applied systemically and with transparency, 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.
A robust supply chain with a comprehensive supplier management program
Our comprehensive supplier management program vets and qualifies first and second sources of key components to ensure a reliable supply chain, globally.
