Presentation: Economic comparison between stainless steel and single-use systems

The economic comparison between stainless steel and single-use systems by Jeff Johnson, Engineering Director, Global Engineering Services, Merck & Co., is very interesting.

Merck concludes that the number of lots per year is a dominant factor; as single-use technologies have highest impact in low volume requirements.
