As the implementation of single-use technology continues to grow and expand into new applications, the industry will be presented with new challenges and requirements. In recent years, GE Healthcare has invested in expanding our internal capabilities for characterizing the materials used in our single-use systems. Through collaboration with our Global Research Centers, we draw upon our strong foundation of material science knowledge and combine it with our understanding of bioprocess application to be able to tackle both current and future challenges with bioprocess films and design the next generation of film technology. A great focus will remain in partnering and collaborating with end-users and experts in order to optimize single use technologies including plastic films.
