Le GIC A3P Single Use has been working for more than 4 years now to respond to the problems posed by single use. Divided into different sub-groups made up of suppliers and users, the GIC worked on several tools:

  • An innovative approach to the selection of components (single-use connectors) through a weighted matrix. (Subgroup 1)
  • An implementation and life cycle management guide for the Single Use product. This very comprehensive document is based on the various questions that may arise throughout the life of the product, and summarizes the documents available to date (PDA, BPSA, BPOG). The objective is to guide users to the implementation and help the most experts to ask the right questions. (Subgroup 2)
  • An interactive PDF containing all the regulatory texts applicable to Single Use. Based on a typical biotech production process, this document allows the user to know the different standards required at each stage of the process. (Subgroup 3)

After a successful first day of exchange in October 2018, the members of the GIC would like to invite you to July 2 next in order to present these different finalized documents to you.

The day will revolve around different highlights

  • During plenary conferences, presentation of case studies of selection and implementation of single use by users.
  • In the workshops, the members of the sub-groups will welcome you to illustrate the use of the tools.
  • A round table discussion on the impact of the new revision of Annex 1 on single-use systems (PUPSIT) will close the event.

Appointment on Thursday July 2, 2020, in Lyon to exchange and debate on this topical subject.
