In order to support the growing need for single-use technologies in the development and production of therapeutics, Thermo Fisher has opened a customer evaluation centre (CEC) at its production facility in Cramlington, England, to showcase the latest innovations in single-use technologies. The CEC lab replicates an actual clean room and houses single-use mixers, bioreactors and fermentors as well as controllers, support containers and other single-use system components used throughout the manufacturing process. The CEC’s state-of-the-art meeting space will be used for training sessions, workshops and seminars.
“Our new single-use technologies customer evaluation centre is designed to provide a wide range of workflow solutions for bioprocessing manufacturers,” said Jim Bylund, vice president and general manager, single use technologies, for Thermo Fisher. “Our customers want to engage in deep technical evaluations and rely upon us to provide comprehensive solutions. The CEC will allow us to better showcase our capabilities and to provide on-going single-use education.”
