US-based ATMI, along with France-based contract-manufacturing company Disposable Lab has introduced a new line of pyrogen-free vials to address biopharmaceutical filling and final packaging needs.
According to ATMI, the new line has been designed to withstand high temperatures during depyrogenation and sterilization.
The vials are packed in a PEEK bag with double-vacuum for tamper-evidence and to maintain sterility, as well as to avoid external contact.
To prevent the vials from breakage during transportation, a third PE/PA film layer is added to the packaging under vacuum in a Class C cleanroom.
ATMI LifeSciences senior vice president and general manager Mario Philips said that the company has partnered with D-Lab to offer comprehensive solution in support of customers’ end goal of advancing patient health and safety.
"Pyrofree vials can be incorporated into ATMI’s existing ultra-clean sterile packaging and fill/finish technologies, or used independently," Philips added.
