For the third time in a row, the German Packaging Institute (Deutsches Verpackungsinstitut e.V.) has honored Syntegon with the German Packaging Award. The new development Versynta microBatch convinced the jury in the category “packaging machines.” The highly flexible and fully automated production cell with gloveless isolator fills and closes smallest batches of pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals safely and with virtually no product loss.
“We are very happy that such an important innovation for the pharmaceutical industry has received the award,” says Dr. Alexander Giehl, head of the pharma liquid & inspection business cluster at Syntegon. “Pharmaceutical and biotech companies require more flexible equipment for new and highly effective drugs for ever-smaller patient groups. Maximum product yield and fast batch changeovers are crucial for smallest batches. We not only answer this trend with Versynta microBatch—we are actively shaping the future of pharmaceutical fill-finish operations, in line with our mission of processing and packaging for a better life.”
The fully automated and highly flexible production cell is designed to fill and close a variety of containers with pharmaceutical liquids and enables a complete batch-to-batch changeover of less than two hours. Syringes, cartridges, and vials made of glass or plastic can be filled with virtually no product loss. The gloveless isolator with integrated air treatment significantly reduces the risk of contamination since it eliminates manual intervention. Fully automated filling and 100% in-process control ensure continuously high quality. Versynta microBatch is an innovative, GMP-compliant system that sets new standards in small batch filling with an output of 120 to 500 containers per hours.
Visitors can get a first glimpse of the new development until August 26 at this year’s Achema in Frankfurt, Germany, at Booth C71 in Hall 3.1, where Syntegon is digitally showcasing Versynta microBatch for the first time.
