Sponsored and owned by Single Use Support, the online configurator is available to everyone and will be a game-changer in the face of the various challenges in the pharmaceutical supply chain: it simplifies building designs to meet clients’ process needs and speeds up the purchasing process of custom-made single-use manifold assemblies for aseptic filling of liquids.

Designing single-use manifolds

Single-use manifolds include complex connections of numerous components, such as aseptic connectors, tubings, fittings, filters, bags and mixers, to secure optimal fluid management systems.
Martin Told, Managing Director at Single Use Support, explains the configurator’s features: “The fluid flow of any media or drug substance can now be visually built in a very user-friendly setup upon custom preferences. The configured manifold can be shared with colleagues or purchased instantly”. Maintaining impartiality to single-use providers, Single Use Support simplifies the navigation through the myriad of Biopharma components. The configurator will be constantly expanding both components and functionality based on customer feedback.

Finding the shortest lead time

As the need for single-use systems has increased during the pandemic, shortages have intensified the challenges in biopharmaceutical supply chain.
“Listening to desperate customers suffering from long lead times of over several months has encouraged us to develop solutions to improve single-use supply processes”, adds Told. On it is now possible to connect with Single Use Support to find shortest lead times for manifolds.
