Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual
Single-Use Technologies and Continuous Processing
Driving Value Through Process Innovations
January 19-20, 2015
Single-use technologies and continuous processing are the two key drivers in the bioprocessing industry today. Although each can be implemented on its own, the combination of single-use with continuous processing promises to bring even greater flexibility and productivity gains. CHI’s Second Annual Single-Use Technologies and Continuous Processing conference highlights the risks, challenges, opportunities and strategies for implementing these two separate yet complementary technologies, and showcases how companies can drive value and increase productivity through these innovations.
