Catalent Pharma Solutions launched its Advasept technology for the advanced aseptic filling of injectable drugs. The new platform provides a glass-free, aseptically filled, primary container that reduces or eliminates many concerns associated with traditional glass vials, including the potential for glass particulate contamination and the risk of accidental breakage in transit or use. Catalent uses blow-fill-seal manufacturing technology to aseptically manufacture, fill, and seal a polymeric primary container. Advasept stoppered vials are currently produced in 10-mL, 50-mL and 100-mL sizes and are available with pop-off or twist-off tops. Containers can be tailored to meet the unique needs of customers across many markets, such as biologics, pharmaceuticals, generics, and animal health.
