Decontaminating 20 tubs in 20 minutes for low to medium speed filling lines
March 21, 2017 (Baltimore, MD and Vendôme, France) Noxilizer, Inc., the company which has commercialized nitrogen dioxide (NO2) based sterilization and biodecontamination equipment for pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device manufacturers announces, the Moduline™ – BioDecontamination unit with Noxilizer Inside™. It will be featured at the global INTERPHEX 2017 conference on March 21–23 in New York City.
To meet production needs for a growing number of biologics delivered in drug-delivery systems, companies are installing low, medium and high speed filling lines. Additionally, they are employing a variety of methods to reduce the risk of microbial contamination of the outer surface of the tubs on insertion into aseptic filling lines.
The Moduline™ – BioDecontamination with Noxilizer Inside™ offers a number of advantages:
- Total Process Time (TPT) is half the time of VHP – improving efficiency
- NO2 decontaminates under the tub lip – achieving a 100% validated 6-log reduction and maintaining the sterility of the isolator
- Aeration to ppb (environmental) residual sterilant level in minutes – reducing the risk for biologic products
- Sterilant gas is delivered in situ, on demand, so no sterilant containers are required
Noxilizer and Getinge have integrated the Moduline™ – BioDecontamination into a compact module which is positioned upstream of an aseptic filling line. The Moduline™ – BioDecontamination is part of the Moduline™ modular range of aseptic filling lines inside isolators. The filling equipment is supplied by DARA-Pharma (Granollers, Spain).
