Novel Single-use Solutions for Cell & Gene Therapy Manufacturing


On demand


As cell and gene therapies offer patients the promise of transformative treatments for challenging diseases, it’s vital to innovate and accelerate the processes that move these solutions from discovery to delivery. Join us on October 22 for our webinar, “Novel Single-use Solutions for Cell & Gene Therapy Manufacturing”, to hear more about how our solutions can help streamline your processes.

Webinar Overview

Novel Single-use Solutions for Cell & Gene Therapy Manufacturing

Rapid advancements in cell and gene therapy development have resulted in recent product approvals bringing these transformative medicines to market. Commercializing these products have introduced a new set of challenges unique to our industry.

Single-Use products and systems have proven to enable a more flexible and cost-effective approach to traditional bio-pharma manufacturing when certain manufacturing modifications are adopted. For example, using low volume sample management systems to increase product yields and implementing ready to use sterilized solution prefilled to certain amount for addition to each step in a closed loop fashion. These new products can be used to streamline the process with consistent quality output. 

The presentation will provide an overview and detail several unique challenges currently facing the commercialization of these transformative medicines including:

  • Manufacturing risks
  • Workflow constraints
  • Contamination control

Presented as part of the Avantor webinar programme in October 2019.
