Single Use technology is being used more each year in the biotechnology industry. There is an increased interest in understanding the interaction of extractables with protein and cells as their applications span from cell banking to drug product. The challenges faced by various areas are similar yet there is lack of communication as these issues and solutions are discussed in conferences focused on their respective functions, e.g., cell culture, purification. Additionally, conferences are focused on the application of single use in various functional areas versus the science of single use and its impact on bioprocessing. The purpose of this conference is to delve into the science of plastics as it applies to bioprocessing and bring all functions to one common venue to share their issues, understanding, and solutions. Additionally, it also aims to bring representatives from the resin, film and single use components manufacturing industry to communicate with bioprocessing. The aim is for manufacturers to understand how their products get used in bioprocessing and the impact of their formulation, processing conditions, assembly etc. on bioprocessing. Similarly, it allows the pharma industry to understand the challenges, limitations and what is involved with film manufacturing.
