The Asep-Tech Lab+ Blow-Fill-Seal Machine from Weiler Engineering is a compact, laboratory-sized machine with many of the same options that are available on Weiler’s full-scale production machine.

The Asep-Tech Lab+ Blow-Fill-Seal Machine from Weiler Engineering is a compact, laboratory- sized machine suited to meet the recent demand for low-output production of pharmaceutical products and/or small-development batches using this advanced aseptic technology.  The design meets the needs for bio/pharmaceutical applications including biologics, 503B drug shortages, stability testing, clinical trials, and high-value batches. 

Blow-fill-seal technology is known for the production of shatterproof, durable, aseptically-packaged products in one uninterrupted operation. The modularity of the laboratory-sized platform allows Weiler to offer a variety of options such as single-use technology or conventional clean-in-place and steam-in-place technologies; a new, patent-pending grade-A filling zone; a new, patent-pending particulate matter removal system for when the hot knife is in use; a 21 CFR Part 11-compliant audit trail; fully integrated supervisory control and data acquisition capabilities; automated onboard deflashing; insertion of rubber stoppers or tip/cap inserts; and other items Weiler currently offers on all full-scale production machines. The machine was designed for ease of changeover and product-range flexibility.
