Single use technology is widely used within the biopharmaceutical industry and has quickly become a mainstay within the sector.
Introduction to Single Use Technologies is designed to complement CASTL’s in-person Introduction to Bioprocessing course and will highlight the technologies that can be implemented in upstream and downstream processing. Trainees gain hands on experience of common disposable technologies used in bioprocessing operations including bioreactors, connects/disconnects, tube welders and sealers and disposable chromatography columns. Trainees will be exposed to strategies in implementing single use components, the regulation, and risk management around leachable and extractable studies.

This course is designed for those that are new to the use of single use technologies, including development scientists, process engineers, and manufacturing operators.
On completion of this module, attendees should be able to:
- Describe the principles and applications of single use technology.
- Describe the Pharmacopeia (USP) and Leachable and Extractable Studies for material compatibility assessment
- Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using single use technology in a bioprocessing operation
- Look at a cost analysis of using single use/disposable technology compared to traditional re-usable stainless-steel technology throughout a biopharmaceutical process.
- Be aware of the various forms of disposable technologies and where they are used.
- List and describe common problems in the handling and use of disposable technology including connects/disconnects, sampling systems, addition bags etc.
