Contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) test, produce and fill highly diverse pharmaceutical products for different customers. Sensitive liquid biopharmaceuticals are especially demanding in terms of filling processes. Hence, not every system is suited for every application. For several customers’ new products, the largest Chinese CDMO – WuXi AppTec – needed an additional filling solution and contacted Bosch Packaging Services to support with a modification of its existing Bosch FLC 3040 filling machine. For the first time, Bosch implemented a movable peristaltic pump filling system in China.
