FCIS – PHARMACEUTICAL ISOLATOR

Fedegari has decided to develop the FCIS pharmaceutical isolator to offer its customers a process machine capable of:

  • Ensure maximum safety in the handling and dosing phases of active ingredients and high potent substances.
  • To ensure continuity of sterility when unloading from a sterilizer.
  • To ensure aseptic filling in the production of sterile drugs.

The FCIS unit physically separates the operator – who works in a class C or D EU cGMP (ISO7, ISO8 US cGMP ) environment – from the work chamber that ensures a class A Eu cGMP (ISO5 US cGMP ) environment. The isolator complies with FDA , EMA and WHO standards and associated pharmacopeias as well as all applicable EN standards and directives.

The FCIS pharmaceutical isolator has a side door for the passage of material and to remove any waste after the process. To avoid false positives, a standard FHPV peroxide generator is supplied, thanks to which it is possible to launch a cycle of chemical decontamination of the work surfaces before starting to use FCIS. This allows you to be sure of working in an aseptic environment.

Fedegari has installed on FCIS the same solution that is provided in the FCDV decontamination pass-boxes because the reliability of third-party generators was judged insufficient. A further advantage of the Fedegari peroxide generator is that it does not require proprietary consumables, reducing the running costs of the machine.

Thanks to the presence of sensors in the chamber, the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide vapor are directly monitored in real-time by the Thema4 process controller (against the estimate that is generally carried out by others) and remain constant in the chamber, ensuring certainty of results and repeatability of the process.

Elevators and Lowerators

Vetromeccanica Elevator – Lowerator: The Optimal Solution for a Gentle Handling of Containers!

Many automated floor conveyor systems need to operate continuously on more than one floor of a warehouse or factory building. A means of raising or lowering product loads between different elevations of the conveyor system is therefore required, often within very restricted floor space. Elevators and lowerators are an efficient means of achieving this.

Lab Equipment, Industrial and Integrated systems

Fedegari, once known for its sterilizers, has turned today into a one-stop industrial group that delivers highly customized solutions where the bio/pharmaceutical industry is producing sterile drugs. During the last years, Fedegari has developed fully integrated robotized solutions for different customers world-wide helping them to achieve the best performances and increasing cost-effectiveness. Hereunder you can find a couple of examples of turn-key integrated systems that we have engineered and developed, together with our customers, to reach the highest levels of cost-effectiveness in their pharmaceutical plants. No matter the form of the drug, the packaging, or the process, there is always a smarter, more cost-effective alternative in manufacturing.

Fedegari offers industrial solutions translated into machines and plants for niche applications, where the serial machines are no longer sufficient. These solutions are developed in close collaboration with customers, to satisfy particular production needs such as automation of pharmaceutical processes and increased productivity. For this purpose, the contribution of the experience matured by Fedegari proved to be fundamental, allowing us to take advantage of proven technical solutions in years of operation in the field. Having verified the feasibility of the project and carried out a study of the layout and technical requirements, we develop ad hoc solutions to guarantee maximum performance. The deep knowledge of the processes and of the related critical issues have guided us in the design and construction of machines and systems with absolutely unique characteristics.

More than 60 years of manufacturing in-house components, systems, and sub-systems for the most demanding users. A piece of in-depth knowledge is hard to beat. Our laboratory range brings to you all the innovations already tested in the pharmaceutical industry. The same components, the same process controller, customized to meet your laboratory needs.

Self Adhesive Labeling Solution

The S150 is a fully automatic, self-adhesive labelling system for the application of paper and clear self-adhesive labels to a wide range of products including cylindrical, rectangular, square or oval containers, in glass, plastic or composite materials. The S150 range is designed for maximum versatility, offering the capability to label containers from 10mm dia. to 150mm dia. with minimal change parts.

The S150 has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the international pharmaceutical industry and the requirements of all the industry’s regulatory bodies, including the FDA, but is equally suited to other industries where flexibility, high speed accuracy and reliability are pre-requisites.

A variable speed roller at the infeed spaces the containers entering the machine. Each individual container is detected at the labelling point as it passes a sensor, at which point the label feed is activated. The leading edge of the label is driven off the backing web at a linear speed that matches the container speed; this ensures smooth, accurate placement on the container surface. The container, gripped between an applicator drum and presser pad, is controlled as the label is pressed firmly in place, ensuring high registration accuracy.

Fedegari BIO-DECONTAMINATION UNIT – FCDV

With the FCDV bio-decontamination unit you can bring inside the clean rooms all those products and instruments that cannot be thermally sterilized. Surface bio-decontamination of the load is carried out with vaporized hydrogen peroxide – H2O2.

Among the most reliable sporicidal agents, vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is nowadays one of the most popular: its antibacterial, antimycotic and antiviral properties are well known and scientifically documented.

This solution is becoming increasingly relevant as the regulators shift their focus away from traditional moist- and dry-heat sterilization processes to address all other bioburden risks. Moreover, Fedegari has applied the Quality-by-design concept to the development of this innovative process equipment, in order to meet the current approach required by the EMA and FDA.

DESIGN & TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Stainless steel AISI 316L chamber polished to strict sanitary standards (Ra <0.4μm).
  • Doors are made of AISI 316L stainless steel with a central glass panel
  • 100% air-tight guarantee: thanks to two separate inflatable gaskets seating in two slots mechanically machined all around the door with an additional leak-monitoring system.
  • Direct control of hydrogen peroxide in the chamber.
  • Optimized process: surface bio-decontamination is achieved in 30 minutes.
  • Fedegari hydrogen peroxide vaporizer with a control loop (PID based), which provides superior reliability and repeatability for easier validation.

Onion Skin Ampoule Filling and Sealing

A manufacturer of drug and explosive detection equipment for law enforcement, hazmat teams and educational systems.

Cozzoli were approached about a need for filling onion skin style ampoules. These ampoules would be part of a mobile detection system, where after swabbing a potentially contaminated area, the swab is inserted into the pouch and the ampoules are crushed. The chemical inside of the ampoule mixes with the swab and will detect if any drug or explosive residue is present.

This application would require the ampoule to be filled with a small and very precise amount of liquid, then flame sealed.

This was a perfect application for our FPS series ampoule filling and sealing MonoBlock. The application required the filling of 6.70mm x 60mm onion skin tubes with .10 mL -.40 mL of liquid. This would have to be done at a production rate of 45 -50 ampoules per minute. Due to these requirements, the FPS1-OS-SS was chosen for the job.

Our FPS series monoblock fills and seals a variety of ampoule shapes and sizes, at speeds of 15-120 ampoules per minute and a fill accuracy of +/- .5%.

With the fill volume requirements being so small, a peristaltic pump was added in order to feed the liquid into the machine. A peristaltic pump is typically used for very precise filling applications, as well as applications where the liquid is clean/sterile and cannot come into contact with any exposed pump components.
