Restricted-access barrier systems (RABS) have been a major part of pharmaceutical aseptic filling operations for many years. They were introduced around the year 2000, and by 2007 there were 75 installations in the business globally. Today, there may be several hundred, most of which are in GMP-compliant facilities and serving the needs of the business.
Airflow visualization testing, conducted as part of a routine review program, can help assure that aseptic filling areas remain under a state of proper control.
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.
Maximized uptime, minimized changeover time, and efficient OEE are key factors that have influenced the acceptance of aseptic blow-fill-seal in the packaging of pharmaceutical liquids.
BFS technology has been gaining increasing worldwide acceptance in the parenteral drug marketplace, replacing traditional glass vial processing in a growing number of applications.
Aseptic blow-fill-seal systems for packaging pharmaceutical liquids incorporate materials and process that provide critical advantages for sustainable initiatives.
Sustainability means a balancing act and the ability to maintain a certain regulatory standard and the approach of in-built sustainability is essential when designing biopharmaceutical facilities.
