Singota Solutions (Booth #1461) and AB Biotechnologies (Booth #1539) have each publicly announced their adoption of Vanrx's aseptic filling systems, with other U.S. and global installations also occurring this year. Consultations have occurred between Vanrx, customers and regulatory bodies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for use of the Vanrx SA25 in clinical and commercial production.
"Vanrx is growing at a tremendous rate as the industry recognizes the value of the company's approach to flexible aseptic filling. This edition of Interphex is special because we have so much to share with companies that were waiting to see progress towards product and regulatory milestones," says Chris Procyshyn, CEO, Vanrx Pharmasystems.
Visitors to booth 3904 can see the SA25 Workcell in operation through the company's innovative virtual reality experience. Viewers go inside a real Workcell as robots perform the work of filling and closing nested, pre-sterilized vials.
Vanrx will also participate in the IPS technology tours for the first time as part of the "aseptic small-scale / modular technologies" segment on March 22 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The SA25 Aseptic Filling Workcell uses robotics to perform all material handling, filling and container closing activities. It was designed by pharmaceutical veterans who wanted to solve long-standing aseptic processing problems within conventional fill-finish systems. Their goal was to make the production of complex drug products easier and improve patient safety.
Key benefits of the SA25 Workcell include:
Flexibility to fill and close vials, syringes or cartridges with industry-leading quality.
Efficient production of multiple products through fast changeover and batch cycling times.
Shortens time to construct filling operations or add capacity through a standardized design.
Scale production through additional Workcells to support flexible manufacturing capacity.
Lowers costs by using less space and requiring fewer utilities than conventional systems.
Use of nested components and closures simplifies material handling and minimizes particle generation
