In 2017, the company announced that the facility was to start manufacturing the companys automated bioprocessing systems, complementing existing production at its site in Oxnard, California, while 2016 saw the introduction of a new ISO Class 7 cleanroom at the facility, from which Parker Bioscience is now producing single-use manifolds incorporating tubing, bioprocess containers, filters, sensors and other components for use in the bioprocessing industry.
Downstream continuous bioprocessing, especially, is seen as a critical component to advancing future bioprocessing.
The growth in the Downstream Bioprocessing Market and Downstream Processing in Biopharmaceuticals will majorly be driven by the increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals, as downstream processing steps play a significant role in providing pure and quality products.
Factors such as increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals, high energy efficiency, low water usage, less floor space requirement, very low risk of product cross contamination, and faster to implement are the key drivers for the growth of the global single use bioprocessing market.
