Isolation-Based Sterile Facilities: A Comparison of Conventional Stainless-Steel versus Single-Use-Disposable Technology Implementation

This case study will examine the impact of implementing single-use technology in a modern sterile facility, versus using stainless-steel equipment. Implementing single-use-technology will be studied on a facility-wide basis, system-by-system. Emphasis will be placed upon how using modern technology can protect sterile product at each critical process step, and analysis of the pros/cons of using stainless-steel versus single-use components. Participants will be able to integrate single-use-disposable components into a modern sterile facility, understand the impact of integration, and know the benefits (and risks) of stainless steel vs. single-use process equipment.
