Bridging the gap: Assuring sterility of RTU containers from end-to-end

When filling in aseptic environments, a strict contamination control is indispensable. This requires that all introduced components must be free from contamination. This also applies to the outer packaging of ready-to-use containers, namely tub and Tyvek®, as these components enter the aseptic core before delidding of the tub to take out the primary packaging containers for filling.

As the current market standard secondary packaging cannot assure the sterility of the outside of the tub and Tyvek®, pharma companies rely on cumbersome and expensive surface decontamination. The presentation will give details on improved packaging and machining concepts assuring sterility from end-to-end in a No-Touch-Transfer process.
