Compliance.

Be ahead of the curve and ensure full compliance with the new Annex I requirements by upgrading the control system, critical instrumentation, and lyophilizer loading and unloading systems to meet the latest and most stringent environmental control standards and regulatory expectations.

 

Service Products

  • Instruments redundancy
  • Control System upgrades
  • Fully automatic Water Intrusion Test for sterilizing filters
  • Continuous automatic monitoring and alarming of the sterile boundary of the lyophilization process
  • Cycle queuing to enable the fully automatic unattended execution of all service cycles (defrosting, CIP/SIP, Filter integrity test and Unit leak test)  to minimize equipment downtime between two consecutive manufacturing cycles while meeting the most recent GMP best practices.
  • Unique batch report for freeze drying and services cycles
  • Upgrade of the loading/unloading systems (from fully manual to enclosed and ventilated semi- or fully automatic loading/unloading systems) and implement physical barrier technologies around your unsealed containers to support the achievement of Grade A conditions throughout the handling of the partially closed/unsealed containers.

Value and benefits

  • Enhance your Aseptic process robustness by minimizing the risk of biological contamination at this crucial step of your aseptic processes
  • Automate parts of the handling to minimize equipment/Operator interactions
  • Achieve full compliance to Annex I’s requirements and most recent GMP best practices with a reduced capital investment and downtime

Renew your equipment to avoid obsolescence.

The LYO-ReGen package makes it possible to upgrade any machine and eliminate the risk of obsolescence of old components by improving performance or adding features that are only available in “new generation” equipment.

Service Products
