Thermo Scientific Single-Use Flexible Containment

Elevate your single-use supply with a global harmonized manufacturing network

Creating a robust single-use supply chain is a top priority for us to help ensure you can meet your key operational business goals. To meet the challenges of unprecedented high demand for single-use consumables and ongoing shortages of capacity and raw materials, we have implemented a multi-tiered strategy to improve the resilience of our supply chain. This strategic initiative utilizes global capacity expansion, standardization, and quality harmonization to help ensure you have consistent access to high-quality products, no matter where they are built.

Our multi-tiered strategy to improve single-use supply chain resiliency

Current networked sites:

Our expanded single-use manufacturing network totals nearly 200,000 ft2 of clean room space across these sites:

  • Logan, Utah
  • Cramlington, United Kingdom
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Joo Koon, Singapore
  • Suzhou, China

Future networked sites:

  • Millersburg, Pennsylvania
  • Matamoros, Mexico

We’ve created the global standard component library (GSCL) for use in the designs of single-use products using pre-qualified components with standard claims that are stocked within the network. The GSCL encompasses our most widely used components and have been carefully selected based on their board applicability and universal relevance.

GSCL key characteristics:

  • Qualified for network manufacturing
  • Stocked within the network
  • Enable creation of assemble to order (ATO) network designs
  • Carry consistent, standard claims including sterility, endotoxin, bioburden, and particulate

The creation of a manufacturing network is dependent on true manufacturing redundancy, with the ability to seamlessly shift demand to efficiently utilize available capacity. To that end, each facility within our network has been harmonized with respect to product attributes, manufacturing processes, and quality management systems (QMSs) to ensure equivalence in product form, fit, and function.

With our sites harmonized, multi-site qualification is available to allow you to take advantage of the network manufacturing benefits for your single-use designs. All current and future standard designs are eligible for network manufacturing. Please contact your local representative to learn how we can support your move to network manufacture with our best possible lead time and supply assurance level.

Nashville-SUT-Site

Nashville, Tennessee: A new addition to the single-use manufacturing global network

The Nashville site joins the ranks of our other single-use manufacturing sites that cumulatively provide nearly 200,000 square feet of clean room space. This state-of-the art facility will be one of the world’s largest manufacturing sites of its kind and will more than double the company’s single-use manufacturing capacity, allowing us to harmonize manufacturing globally for our customers. This means that we will have the capability to utilize equivalent processes and procedures to manufacture single-use products of consistent quality, form, fit and function worldwide.
