A stainless-steel version of the fill-it system from TAP Biosystems, now part of the Sartorius Stedim Biotech Group, is designed for safely dispensing biohazardous materials such as vaccine stocks. The system fits into standard isolator cabinets, thus reducing the product contamination risk and the operator’s exposure to biohazardous material. The system automatically decaps, accurately fills, and recaps a rack of 24, 2-ml vaccine vials every two minutes. Automation ensures vial-to-vial consistency and, because there is no need for any manual intervention, makes routine vial fill and finishing safer. The fill-it system uses single-use tubing, and the stainless-steel exterior can be sterilized after each batch run. The electronics have been coated to allow sterilization withe hydrogen peroxide vapor.
