Capacity demand for drug product compounding and filling is rising rapidly, G-CON says, which escalates the filling capacity bottleneck
G-CON Manufacturing has introduced a catalog of aseptic filling PODs – drop-ship cleanroom environments which enable compact, small footprint fill line systems to be integrated into G-CON PODs. The fill line units can be preinstalled into the PODs, pre-qualified with the ability to ship where the fill capacity is required.
Capacity demand for drug product compounding and filling is rising rapidly, G-CON says, which escalates the filling capacity bottleneck. To ease that burden and allow more rapid access and installation of capacity, G-CON has collaborated with various aseptic filling technology suppliers to create predesigned aseptic filling cleanroom environments.
Aseptic filling PODs are designed to enable easy decision making and ease of scaling out options while meeting the specific needs of aseptic filling operations. The company and its collaborators recognised a need to reduce design time and the complexities and risks associated with traditional construction.
“The focus for everybody has to be the patient,” said Maik Jornitz, CEO of G-CON, “For us that meant we cannot go halfway by designing drug substance processing environments. We must address the urgent needs of aseptic filling capacities. PODifying the innovative filling line systems now available within the industry is the next step to offer fast deployable, prequalified solutions. With aseptic filling being a key critical step, and G-CON PODs, raising the containment quality and speed of implementation, this catalog is the ideal solution.”
G-CON has developed an aseptic filling POD Catalog with 10 filling suppliers. The catalog shows a number of small volume fill line systems integrated into PODs, allowing end users the ability to view layouts, renderings and select equipment that can be placed into a POD, pre-qualified and shipped to the production site.
