Perhaps the well-recognized advantage of outsourcing buffer preparation is the extra facility capacity that is freed up as a result of removing your in-house capabilities.
Buffer preparation and storage for a standard monoclonal antibody bioprocess can require up to 30% of a facility’s floor space.
Outsourcing buffer preparation provides a simple solution to reclaim some or all this footprint, eliminating the need for mixing and storage tanks and the accompanying maintenance requirements.
Reducing your storage needs opens up the opportunity of repurposing facility usage and even expanding on your existing manufacturing capacity. Such flexibility supports growth through the added benefit of diminished upfront capital expenditure and operating costs.
