Customizable Heat Sealed Bags | Bioprocessing Bags

In recent years there has been a shift from stainless steel and glass culture vessels to disposable plastic bags and pouches for utilization in cell culture management systems and single-use bioreactors (SUB).  As a global contract manufacturer of customizable heat sealed bags, Genesis Plastics Welding knows there are many factors to consider when designing and manufacturing single-use specialty medical device bags and bioprocessing bags.

Bioprocessing Bags

Whether for collection, feeding, harvesting, storage, transfer or transport, bioprocessing bags can come in all shapes, sizes and materials. All with different hanging requirements and connection specifications, as well. Having much to consider, OEMs in the design and development stages of a specialty cell culture management bag, often lean on collaborative partners to explore materials, sealing methods, sterilization processes and the needed quality specifications.

Scottish Life Sciences Association Visits Genesis Plastics Welding

Scotland’s life science sector is doing well in spite of Brexit and the Scottish Life Sciences Association is working to make synergistic connections to support future growth and innovation.

While life science academia has long been at the core of Scotland – the discovery of penicillin, identifying the link between mosquitos and malaria, the invention of the MRI scanner, the birth place of Dolly the Sheep –  the county is now growing by leaps and bounds with start-up medical device companies, as well. Scotland notes vast resources for research and academia, with 19 universities and multiple world leading innovation research centers, but it is lacking in specialty advanced manufacturing resources to support mass production of cutting edge medical devices.

This is where the link between Indiana and Scotland comes into play. Scotland’s population mirrors Indiana’s, not just in size, but similar industry strengths and population health issues. As well as, similar trade organizations working collectively as a voice for their health and life science business community, while connecting key stakeholders to enhance business and advocate member interests.
