SP SCIENTIFIC PRODUCTS

The injectables market is a very demanding market, with high standard requirements. i-Dositecno is offering a very high standard solution for medium and low speed solutions, but with very high requirements. Our speed range covers till 9.000u/h. In this product range we can offer maximum benefits like Isolators for high containment solutions, oRAB’s and cRAB's, IPC control with check weighing of 100% of the production, CFR 21 part 11 compliance and smooth and accurate production.

The Ultra Pilot Lyophilizer is a suitable for pilot scale work as well as small production runs. Shelf temperatures as low as -70C and condenser temperatures to -85C supports a wide range of applications.

LyoConstellation represents a brand new range of development and pilot freeze dryers, configured to order for faster delivery and specifically designed for aseptic operation. When handling high value API, and with a need to bring product to market as quickly and safely as possible, LyoConstellation addresses early stage development under aseptic and low particle controlled conditions. The product therefore behaves in the same manner once it is ready for scale-up, and then commercialization. Powerful equipped as standard to provide higher capacity, broadened equipment capability and expanded design space, LyoConstellation models S10, S20, and S30 are all equipped with the same advanced suite ofLine of Sight technologies as other SP R&D freeze dryers, providing data for full process and product life cycle management. The LyoConstellation range also fully integrates with SP filling line and semi-automatic loading systems offering best manufacturing freeze-drying practices, to achieve faster product progression from development to commercialization.

The SP Hull LyoStar 4.0 designed and built to enhance speed to market of biopharmaceutical products and represents a significant advancement in freeze dryer engineering. Based on a full-scale production freeze dryer to support rapid-scale-up, LyoStar 4.0 is a pilot-scale lyophilizer offering superior shelf mapping, rapid shelf freezing, unmatched process accuracy and reliability. It also includes a cutting-edge suite of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) tools augmenting SP's Line of Sight™ suite of technologies which overcomes critical lyophilization challenges during development, scale‑up and manufacturing of a biologic.

Line of Sight is a data rich set of lyophilization technologies and process analytical technology (PAT) tools designed to overcome critical lyophilization challenges during development, scale up and manufacturing of biologic products. It also enables continuous process monitoring and improvement as expected by regulatory agencies. Each element of the Line of Sight suite helps lyophilization scientists to better understand different facets of the freeze-drying process. By using Line of Sight technologies across all the different products, SP uniquely enables development scientists to create new freeze-drying cycles and transfer their products and processes quickly and confidently from one scale to the next, and even from one facility to another. Should any unexpected deviation in a production cycle occur, Line of Sight technology enables a detailed analysis of the process, allowing scientists to decide whether the batch can be safely released, potentially saving many millions of dollars.

Building on SP Hotpack's reputation for reliability and customer satisfaction, these stability chambers represent the ultimate in quality craftsmanship. High quality, corrosion resistant design allows for continuous use without fear of failure or downtime. Temperature and humidity are precisely controlled to meet ICH and other testing standards.

Flexible for Small Batch and High-Speed Applications
For full line vial applications that include freeze dryers, SP offers a unique row-by-row (RxR) loading system for higher-speed applications, accommodating loading speeds up to 400 vials per minute. Semi-Automatic Loading SP’s semi-automatic loading system is specifically designed for smaller batch applications that include freeze dryers.

Complete In-line Decontamination
SP Hull external vial washers are regularly used to clean the outside vial surfaces to minimize false rejects during inspection, and to clean vials filled with potent drugs. The SP range of compact in-line vial decontaminating machines includes the EVW–60 for up to 100 vials per minute, and the EVW–100 for throughputs in excess of 400 vials per minute. The EVW-100 can also have glove ports, a wash down wand and an air handling system with bag in and bag out filters to ensure sterility and containment.

The CRS, BI and LI models from SP enable processing at 200 caps per minute for aseptic applications. Crimp cappers control the vertical force during the closing operation by means of servo drives. For screw capping, torques can be monitored and recorded using a strain gauge option to increase vial protection.

Versatile and Complete Sterile Filling Solutions
SP offer a choice of machines and dispensing methods for liquid filling of oral and ophthalmic bottles, vials, syringes and cartridges. All offer the dependable sterility, accuracy and speed essential for the pharmaceutical sectors, whilst also meeting the highest quality and accuracy expectations of GMP and FDA regulations.

Fully Automatic Sterilization
There are several different methods of inactivating pyrogens, including bacterial endotoxin’s, on vial surfaces. The most common and effective way is through dry heating to above 250°C, and both manually loaded ovens for smaller batch sizes and continuous production depyrogenation tunnels have been used. SP provides a range of fully automatic sterilization/depyrogenate and tunnels for vials, in a variety of sizes including production rates in excess of 700 vials per minute. At just five feet in length, our smallest depyrogenation tunnel is ideally suited for laboratory and small batch applications.

Effective and Efficient Vial Washing
Vial washing cleans the vials of particulate matter and microorganisms; however traditional vial washers have many moving parts, which can themselves generate particulates. SP Hull vial washers have just two moving parts in their washing chamber to ensure highly effective cleaning and their main drive is servo driven. Each vial format has a Human Machine Interface (HMI) selected recipe with specific settings for spray time to help reduce water consumption. Vials are washed without the washing needle entering the vial, thereby eliminating the risk of vials being damaged due to misaligned or bent washing needles.

SP I-DOSITECNO FILL-FINISH EQUIPMENT

PennTechs customized Automatic Loading/Unloading Systems can be installed as part of a new freeze dryer installation and as retrofit with almost all existing freeze dryers.

The TL-100 is controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and will handle plastic and glass vials with speeds of up to 200 vials per minute (depending on vial diameter and tray size). It is designed to handle trays up to 610 mm (24") wide (open end) and up to 610 mm (24") deep. Tray materials can be metal, cardboard, corrugated plastic, or rigid plastic.

The TL-200 has two loading platforms (the TL-100 has one), so that two trays are loaded simultaneously. Once the trays are full, the operator replaces one of the loaded trays with an empty one and the machine immediately resumes loading that tray. The operator then replaces the other loaded tray with an empty one. When in place, the machine will resume loading both trays. The process is seamless; there is no additional work to be done or buttons to be depressed by the operator. Once a tray is full, the loading process stops and a yellow light and audible signal indicate that the tray can be replaced.

PennTech manufactures an array of standard and custom sanitary conveyors and accumulation tables, including transfer disks. All systems are of the highest quality, completely customizable and direct driven (zero maintenance).
