For clients with chemical API synthesis plants, the growth in the market for more individualised (and therefore smaller volume) HPAPIs (High Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) has developed at the same time as increased demand for shorter turnaround times. How should manufacturers respond to this need for greater agility and speed?
Retrofitted flexible isolators from ONFAB allow existing API synthesis processes to be contained to OEB 4 and OEB 5 levels, with improved GMP environmental conditioning. Because the SOP for your existing equipment can be maintained, ergonomics remain unaffected and equipment can be used as usual without time consuming change out procedures.
The isolators are easily removed when not in use, meaning your equipment can simply be switched between handling potent and non-potent compounds. Low oxygen / high nitrogen environmental conditions can be achieved ensuring compliance with processing activities and ATEX.
