Bosch Technology and Sartorius Stedium Biotech (SSB) have reached a long-term deal for the design and development of single-use aseptic filling solutions for final fill-and-finish operations of liquids and pharmaceuticals.
Under the terms of the agreement, SSB will provide Bosch with pre-configured single-use filling transfer sets that include bags, connectors and tubing sets to be integrated to its aseptic filling and barrier isolation technology to form new systems for aseptic filling.
Bosch hopes to provide cost-effective plug and play tools that offer additional flexibility to its customers for aseptic filling operations with the new PreVAS (Pre-Validated, Pre-Assembled, Pre-Sterilized) product line.
According to the firms, they aim to develop configurable and customized single-use filling solutions and to provide strong validation and technical support, and hope to ease rising burden of costs on customers.
SSB supplies equipment for development, production and quality control processes of the biopharmaceutical industry.
