Powder containment and sterile transfer solutions provider, ChargePoint Technology has achieved HazLoc (Hazardous Area) certification for VERIFI to further support customers in North America
Better containment in powder transfer helps to protect staff from exposure to APIs and HPAPIs, as well as improving efficiency, maintaining product quality and supporting compliance.
Better aseptic powder handling through the use of high-tech split butterfly valves can improve patient protection, improve working conditions for staffs and cut costs through the use of lower-grade cleanrooms.
Although pharmaceutical manufacturers take stringent steps to ensure that their production systems are as safe as possible, a fully gowned operator can still create as many 150,000 particles per minute, meaning that drug manufacturing is never a completely hazard-free process.
Which methods are most prominent in the pharmaceutical containment industry today and what key challenges are pharmaceutical businesses facing.
The global HPAPI market was valued at US$14.4 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.3 per cent, reaching US$34.8 billion by 2025.
Key considerations linked to containment performance testing, data collection methods and the interpretation of results.
Containment is key during aseptic processing and this has led to the development of new transfer methods that are both enclosed and minimize the requirement for operator intervention.
Powder containment and aseptic transfer valve specialist, ChargePoint Technology, has launched a unique Smart monitoring hub to support efficiency and safety within chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The company will be exhibiting its new VERIFI solution at ACHEMA 2018, in Hall 3.0, stand D14.
Working towards a goal to define current good practices providing information to allow organizations to benchmark their practices and improve on them.
