New biopharmaceutical drug products that alter and even save lives can be very profitable for their developers. They are, however, costly to develop and represent significant investment, particularly at the end of the manufacturing process. For this reason, safe cost-effective frozen storage and transport are critical, especially as drugs transition from R&D through clinical trial and to higher volume production.
Transitioning to more efficient, cost-effective, single-use solutions can help biopharmaceutical manufacturers hit performance targets at high yields.

Johannes Kirchmair | CEO/founder
Single Use Support GmbH
Johannes Kirchmair spent 15 years as a process and business development manager in the single-use industry. As part of BPSA, ASTM, and Dechema working groups, he is well versed in the industry challenges surrounding freezing and cryo processes.
In 2015, he co-founded Single Use Support GmbH (SUSupport) in Austria. SUSupport developed a helium-based integrity test machine for point-of-use testing single-use bags, as well as a number of technologies that allow clients to reduce product loss during freeze/thaw processes to 0%. SUSupport’s mission is to improve single-use bag technology to maintain drug integrity and increase patient safety. www.susupport.com.
