Aseptic Processing

Aseptic Processing

Our pharmaceutical and medical device customers are under increasing pressure to develop drugs and devices more quickly and cost-effectively.  This is driven by significant growth in biological drug pipelines, the trend towards personalised medicines and an ageing population with increasing life-expectancy.  In addition, customers are experiencing increasing competition and growing pressures to find cures for cancer, dementia and other diseases which drive significant cost and demand on our global health services.  Many drugs require aseptic manufacturing solutions and 3P helps customers to address these challenges by supplying proven, modular filling and manufacturing technologies and machine solutions that can be customised and adapted to suit specific customer needs in sterile production.

Aseptic Filling Experts

3P specialises in aseptic fill-finish, with a particular expertise in the manufacture, filling and closing of novel, custom containers for a wide variety of applications including auto-injectors, reconstitution syringes, intranasal devices and ‘on-body’ wearable injectors;  We offer a wide range of standard modules for gravimetric powder filling and liquid filling, providing 100% in-process checks (IPC) and automated dose adjustment for optimum quality and productivity.  We are also experts in the design and development of semi-automated and fully-automated equipment and production solutions across the Aseptic Manufacturing spectrum.  From lab-scale, bench-top solutions to commercial production lines, we provide solutions for sterile container handling and feeding, 100% check-weighing, nitrogen flushing, vacuum stoppering, rotary crimping and vision inspection.  In addition, we supply solutions for aseptic packaging, including foil pouching and other web material processing solutions.

Our aseptic manufacturing solutions satisfy a very wide range of container types and packaging formats, including RTU (ready to use) tubs and nests, tray-fed devices and single containers from either a mass infeed or loaded individually with manual or semi-automated processing.
