This question is part of the following Ask The Expert session:
Simulated process modeling, using current known process data typically provides the necessary feasibility information. About the technologies, for processes that are transferable, single-use offers an equivalent platform to stainless. There may be unique processes not suited for single-use. Media and additives cannot be sterilized in the bag, but rather externally. Consider your motivation for implementing single-use fermentor technology. Outline your process and go through it, on paper, to maximize your success. Planning and preparation is crucial, especially considering how quickly a system can be turned around. Single-use fermentors can play an essential role in modern-day process environments…development and production.
