Manufacturing of sterile solution and sterile freeze-dried products in 1 – 100 ml vials

  • Bausch+Ströbel (Germany) semi-automatic vials washing machine
  • Isolator Isotech (Canada) class A (ISO 4/5) environment ensure vial’s filling under aseptic conditions for freeze-dried and heat sensitive products
  • Vials filling and closing equipment Flexicon (Denmark) placed in isolator
  • Vials freeze-dried process employ company Martin Christ (Germany) equipment with capacity 12 kg ice. Vials with up to 100 ml volume can be freeze-dried.
  • Sterilization of vials by autoclaving (Fedegari (Italy)) is possible as well.
  • Mean production batch size up to 1500 vials for freeze-dried and up to 5000 vials for solutions
  • Production capacity 150 – 300 thousand vials per year.

Investigational medicinal products manufacturing (IMP)

  • Product formulation development
  • Sterile products in vials (including cytotoxic) investigational medicinal products manufacturing for phase I – III studies
  • Clinical trial material labelling, release, dispatching and shipping
