Sterile Filling is the critical stage of any biopharmaceutical product.
This seminar is here is to present both new technologies for filling but also sterile filling in isolators, small scale filling, ready to fill containers, single use filling equipment and how to set up extractable and leachable studies.
Small scale filling equipment will be displayed with expert vendors ready to demonstrate and answer questions.
The vendors that will be attending are from:
Merck Millipore (single use technologies), MAR (small scale filling), Ompi (ready to fill containers), ToxiKon (experts on extractables).

Anyone attending the seminar will be able to address the following questions:

  • What are the equipment selection options for sterile filling
  • How to solve typical problems for sterile filling
  • What single use filling equipment is available for sterile filling
  • How to combine filling and isolators
  • What specialized equipment is suitable for small scale filling
  • How can I learn from the experience of others in detailed case studies
