Automating Aseptic Vaccine Packaging With Blow-Fill-Seal

A packaging technology known as blow-fill-seal (BFS) offers an automated aseptic method for creating single-dose packaging for vaccines, even those that are very sensitive to heat. BFS uses a continuous, integrated, and completely automated sequence to form containers from thermoplastic granules, fill them with a liquid pharmaceutical product, and then seal the containers.

4 Reasons Blow-Fill-Seal Technology Should Be Considered For Aseptic Filling

Drug manufacturers seeking alternative methods for a safe and reliable approach to drug delivery should consider blow-fill-seal technology, as it offers several benefits over traditional glass packaging. Blow-fill-seal not only addresses the challenges associated with using glass syringes and vials, but the higher automation offers an opportunity to reduce costs, speed up production, and lower labor requirements.

Blow-Fill-Seal For Biologics: Breaking Through In Pharma Packaging

As the industry continues its move toward biologics, innovative solutions and technologies will be needed to ensure a safe and reliable approach to the manufacturing and delivery of intravenous drugs. One option is to leverage the advanced aseptic manufacturing of blow-fill-seal (BFS) technology.

The Cost Savings Of Blow-Fill-Seal: What You Should Know

Despite the benefits of blow-fill-seal (BFS) over glass, some pharmaceutical companies refuse to make the switch due to a number of objections. This article takes a closer look at the technology and reveals how an investment in BFS may yield incredible long-term savings.

Streamlined Blow-Fill-Seal Technology Increases Flexibility And Safety In Aseptic Packaging

The latest generation of aseptic blow-fill-seal (BFS) machines incorporate dedicated isolators adapted specifically for insertion applications. This new addition to the aseptic BFS system has not only streamlined the insertion process, it has also provided a higher level of sterility assurance for products with tip-and-caps and rubber or silicone stoppers inserted under aseptic conditions.

Advances In Aseptic Blow-Fill-Seal Processing Improve Product Integrity

The latest improvements in aseptic blow-fill-seal (BFS) technology are providing more streamlined automation of critical BFS processing areas while limiting human intervention and effectively reducing airborne microbial bioburden and particulate levels, as well as enhancing sterility assurance and patient safety.
