  • 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.

  • Aseptic Filling Of Dry Powder And Liquid In Dual Chamber Syringes

    The trend towards pre-filled disposable syringes whether of the single or dual chamber type is increasing. This webcast concentrates on the aseptic pharmaceutical packaging process challenges that need to be addressed in the final filling process of dual chamber syringes, where both liquid and powdery substances are mixed by the patient immediately prior to injection. This practice shows clear advantages as it can eliminate preservatives needs while enabling longer shelf lives.

  • Freeze Drying Of Vaccines – Challenges And Concepts In Formulation And Process Development

    Vaccination prevents millions of deaths from infectious diseases per year; however, there are still millions of people who die from these diseases due to weak thermostability demanding cold chains, long-term stability issues and distribution challenges. All these limitations can be overcome by creating a dry product through lyophilization. With the urgency to develop a coronavirus vaccine, it is a crucial time to discuss the process of freeze-drying vaccines. This article summarizes a recent webinar that discussed the suitability of freeze-drying vaccines to increase their thermostability.

  • Freeze-Drying COVID-19 Diagnostics: Formulation & Process Development And Lyophilizer Selection

    Lyophilization may be considered a relatively gentle drying process, but there are still risks and pitfalls when applying it to biomolecular reagents in diagnostic tests that are different to the freeze-drying of general pharmaceuticals. Reagents typically used in ELISA and PCR based diagnostic kits for diseases, such as COVID-19 tend to contain labile  components, such as enzymes that need preserving for longevity in the supply chain or antibodies to test for a patients response to the virus, which can be challenging to stabilize for commercial use. This article summarizes a recent webinar exploring various aspects of formulation and cycle development in the lyophilization of diagnostic reagents, including those required for COVID-19 testing that may be different to regular diagnostics.

  • Robotics, Isolators & Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS)
