The focus of the Pharma industry is highly driven by new therapies. Cell and gene, new bio molecules and orphan drugs are the new approach. On the one hand it often asks for smaller batch sizes in filling, but on the other hand the filled product is sensitive to the storage environment. The container and the application forms have to be individually adapted. In a hands-on presentation we will evaluate the pros and cons of existing and new delivery strategies. Direct interaction with the attendees will lead to a good understanding of new "containers" and will help with picking the best solution in the future.
• On and off body worn Pumps for larger volume application
• Polymer syringes for reduced container interference
• Silicon-free for glass and polymer syringes in case of sensitive drugs
• RTF vials for more flexibility
• Integrated safety device for easy and cost effective implementation of regulatory requested safety

Ready-To-Use secondary packaging platform for flexible aseptic operations

• Supply chain improvements for pharma companies when selecting ready-to-use configuration for glass primary packaging
• Benefits in using the same standardized secondary packaging presentation in pharma F&F operations

The pharmaceutical industry is experiencing a shift from blockbuster to biological drugs for more personalized treatments. This trend results in a need for manufacturing smaller batches, handling multiple products in different container presentations on the same filling line, adopting ready-to-use primary packaging. Although the technology of combi lines and RTU for small volume is well established in the market, solutions for larger sized containers, in the 50 to 250 ml volume range, are not yet fully established. To ensure manufacturing readiness, a key aspect pharma companies take into account when selecting the technology is the possibility of multiple sourcing along their supply chain. Flexibility, quality and optimized total cost of ownership are key criteria when selecting partners for fill & finish operations. This presentation illustrates how the partnership between Ompi, Stevanato Group and SGD Pharma on RTU vials has supported a real case of switching manufacturing processes from bulk to EZ-fill®. For the first time, both moulded and tubular glass primary packaging are available in the same secondary packaging, allowing multi sourcing without impacting line format change at pharma operations.
