Today’s manufacturers searching to simplify their supply chains and sharpen their production capabilities can benefit from a new fluid transfer service specifically for aseptic biopharmaceutical production.
The Thermo Scientific Customized Fluid Transfer Service provides pre-sterilized and ready-to-use consumables tailored for a customer’s facility needs, freeing up the manufacturer’s time to focus on critical operations while optimizing cleanroom usage.
This new service – including examples of possible system configurations – will be showcased this week at the INTERPHEX 2015 Conference and Exhibition, April 21-23, 2015 at the Javits Center, New York City, Booth #3544.
Within a current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) facility, the need for a cost-effective aseptic approach to fluid transfer can place a sizable strain upon resources. Manufacturers must implement intelligent strategies to manage the complex supply chains of containers, tubing, filters and connectors – all of which need to be sterilized. This approach creates numerous operations, quality and regulatory challenges. Partnering with a single, trusted supplier to develop a customized turnkey fluid transfer solution can significantly simplify supply chain and inventory management.
“Our systems are custom built to each manufacturing facility’s needs and eliminate any on-site assembly, which not only saves time and resources, but reduces the potential for loss of sterility through human error,” said Myriam Jordan, business director, vaccines and biologics, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “By partnering with us, users can obtain a fluid transfer system that has undergone rigorous testing to meet mutually agreed upon standards, while streamlining supply chain management.”
Companies can also purchase systems certified to a Sterility Assurance Level of 10-6 to save on the cost, time, and effort associated with maintaining validation of their own sterilization programs. Regulatory compliance documentation is available and can be customized to meet specific users’ needs.
