DPS was a main sponsor and moderator for the recent NIBRT event; ‘Disposable Solutions for Fill Finish’ on 11th June, at the Fosters Avenue facility. The inaugural event brought together industry professionals from the sterile manufacturing sector in Ireland. The seminar was education based and provided interesting oversight on the challenges, innovations and current thinking in the use of single use designs for fill finish facilities. Presentations were delivered by a range of presenters from industry peer groups, specialist suppliers, engineers and manufacturers. DPS’s Hugh Hodkinson presented some case studies to demonstrate facility design considerations for implementation of single use solutions.

In the closing words, Sue Cooke, DPS consultant, noted that the main key takeaway from the event was that the Single Use area is moving into a maturing phase with a focus towards standardisation, harmonisation, security of supply and cost reduction. We expect the next few years to be exciting time with increased emphasis on innovation.
