Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing’s (BSM) latest isolator-based filling line, which is currently under development, will implement the new technology.
FREMONT, CA: Colanar and Abbena have created a new technology that will provide non-destructive in-process weight checks (IPCs) for syringes and bulk vials in real-time. Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing’s (BSM) latest isolator-based filling line, which is currently under development, will implement the new technology. In a webinar titled “The new online technique for IPC and other advanced filling technologies,” Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing, a fill-finish CMO, and Colanar, a filling equipment supplier, will discuss this technology and how it operates on June 2, 2021, at 1 p.m. EST. The Future of Small-Scale Sterile Filling is a free webinar series that includes several presentations.
“With this new technology, we can offer clients a completely reliable process to ensure every fill volume is accurate without slowing down their production,” said Shawn Kinney, CEO, and Cofounder, BSM.
To provide free information on applying the latest technologies in small-scale sterile fill-finish, the series was created in collaboration with five leading equipment manufacturers: Claranor, Colanar, Genesis, IMA, and Steriline. Colanar will also explore many modern and advanced filling techniques, including a new nitrogen purging technique that can achieve a less than 1% oxygen headspace, fully automated and versatile filling, and robotic removal of containers with failing IPCs, among other things.
Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing (BSM) will use the latest IPC technique for the first time in their new isolator-based, fully automated sterile filling line for small-scale use. The line is currently being built and is expected to be operational in Q1-2022. The line will be able to fill suspensions, extremely viscous syringes, and cartridges, as well as process vials (RTU or bulk).
