Single-use bioprocess technology offers several advantages for manufacturing biopharmaceuticals, such as increased transportability of fluids throughout the bioprocess workflow and a greater diversity of systems to support specific unit operations (e.g., rocking bioreactors). However, due to the flexible nature of the plastic materials used to construct the single-use containers, the flexural properties of the bioprocess film are critical for performance in such applications. This poster focuses on how the resin selection and architecture of a bioprocess film can be optimized to maintain critical performance attributes, such as container integrity and gas barrier properties, under the significant forces during bulk liquid transportation and WAVE Bioreactor™ system applications.
