Why Outsource Liquid Solutions?

Source: SAFC

Liquid reagents are growing in importance within bioproduction process development, both upstream and downstream. Market research shows that an increasing number of biologics manufacturers are outsourcing more liquid reagents for their processes, thus avoiding the added responsibility of hydrating powder and filtering the solution. Historically, bioprocessors transitioned from liquid to powder formats during Phase II/III, primarily to save money and reduce the storage space required. This is now changing, as there is a tendency to remain in liquids longer through the clinical process, as well as to keep certain solutions, like feeds, additives and supplements, in a liquid format right through to commercialization.
