Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Every Drop Counts

Drugs based on blood plasma or other biological microorganisms are – in comparison to chemical-based materials – expensive in their extraction. It is equally costly and complex to process these products to obtain a safe API. Even the smallest quantities represent high financial value. All processes, in particular filling and closing, and the upstream and downstream functions must be designed to generate the maximum output of pharmaceuticals from an existing product quantity.

The biopharmaceutical market is continually growing. These drugs might have the greatest potential to solve the medical challenges of the near future, such as multi-resistant germs and rare diseases.

To meet the special requirements of these expensive pharmaceuticals, the entire filling and packaging process has been analysed and revised. During this, waste caused by underfilling should be avoided, as should overfilling. If the overfill fluctuates within a defined tolerance, expensive product is involuntarily ‘given away’. On the other hand, if the fill volume is outside the tolerance, the container must be rejected. Many other factors in the manufacturing process have a significant impact on the maximised product yield, according to the experts at the Schwäbisch Hall company. These factors are explained in more detail later.
