Contract Liquid Manufacturing and Packaging for the Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry

Case Study - Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Manufacturing

Contract Liquid Manufacturing and Packaging for the Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry
Contract Liquid Manufacturing and Packaging for the Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry

Innovative manufacturing processes and in-depth industry knowledge have placed Plastikon among the leaders in the global healthcare market. Unique in our ability to deliver a diverse range of services, this project exemplifies how our outstanding project management skills and a team of dedicated experts enabled us to effectively execute the production and packaging of a liquid dose drug delivery system for a customer in the pharmaceutical/medical device industry.

To meet the stringent standards inherent with a project such as this, production was carried out in our ISO Class 5 cleanroom. Liquid manufacture incorporated full analytical chemistry support as well as establishment of efficient commercialization technologies developed in accordance with strict FDA and ISO 13485 standards. Highly automated and precision calibrated blow-fill-seal packaging lines, fully enclosed and impervious to infiltration, were capable of delivering multiple dosage and package types. Servo-driven stations controlled labeling, dosing, and capping to ensure repeatable outcome for every production lot. Advanced analytics, sophisticated instrumentation, material certifications, performance assays, and full lot traceability formed the foundation for fail-safe quality control.

Strategic planning, in-depth industry knowledge, and comprehensive engineering, accelerated time-to-market and helped the customer gain a competitive edge in a very aggressive marketplace. As global industry professionals, we operate with the utmost integrity and protect intellectual property rights both here and abroad. We remain a trusted partner of this customer, and continue to manufacture 30 million units/year.
