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.

The Newman model S350 labeling machine

The Newman model S350 is a fully automatic, versatile labeling system for the application of both paper and clear self-adhesive labels to a wide range of cylindrical containers in glass, plastic, metal or composite materials.

The S350 has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of the international pharmaceutical industry and its regulatory bodies, including the FDA

Generally installed in-line, the S350 transports the containers along a conveyor and spaces them, using a scrolling feed, before they enter the labeling station. The label is applied and then immediately the container comes under the control of the applicator belt, resulting in precise registration and crease-free application.

VERSA CAP – VERSATILE CAPPING MACHINE

This high-performance straight through capper is designed to handle a wide range of cap shapes and sizes. It is easy to run, easy to adjust and uses a minimum of components to provide versatile, high-quality capping. The Versa Cap is designed for rapid change over by using a minimum of capsize change parts. One sorter, chute, and adjustable chute end can handle most caps in either the 13-38mm or 38-70mm size range. A simple quick-change adjustable chute end that snaps into position without tools is needed for each major capsize variation.

Cushioned gripper belts are adjustable to move containers of nearly any size and shape smoothly through the capping operation without the need for timing stars or feed screws. Caps are positioned from a chute in the cap escapement assembly, picked up by the container neck finish and positioned for tightening. An independently driven overhead assembly with matching sets of polyurethane discs assures tight capping. The first set of discs gives caps a quick initial twist. The next set of discs draws the cap onto the container neck. The cap sorter, tightening discs, and machine/conveyor are controlled through three electronically controlled variable speed drives.

The Versa Cap is designed for rapid change over by using a minimum of capsizing change parts. One sorter, chute, and adjustable chute end can handle most caps in either the 13- 38mm or 38-70mm size range. A simple quick-change adjustable chute end that snaps into position without tools is needed for each major capsize variation.

The Versa Cap can be used as a mono-capper in conjunction with any high-speed Cozzoli rotary filler in a monoblock design. Combined drives and controls result in a compact, space-saving, cost-efficient filler/capper combination which is easy to operate, changeover and maintain. Snap capping, overcapping, and fitment inserting can also be readily accomplished on the versatile Versa Cap

What is Contract Packaging?

Hiring a professional contract packer to handle the complicated packaging process can offer companies in multiple industries a large number of advantages. The packaging process is often overlooked when preparing a product for consumer use.

Businesses address this aspect of preparing their product by either investing in an in-house packaging solution or outsourcing to a contract packaging company. Both in-house and outsourced packaging have their own unique advantages.

Continue reading below to learn the differences between in-house packaging and contract packaging services. If you would like to learn more about outsourcing your business’s product packaging with a contract packaging and filling company, please contact LF of America today. 

Advantages Of Outsourcing Contract Packaging

A successful business must consider a number of essential factors in ensuring the success of their products in the marketplace. The need to stay ahead of the curve has influenced businesses to seek innovative solutions to this challenge. Contract packaging services are an increasingly popular packaging solution. 

By hiring a contract packaging company, or contract packer, your business will be able to focus its resources on managing core aspects. Companies that contract outsource packaging to experts can expect an increase in consistency and efficiency.

The major advantages that contract packaging companies offer include:

  • Industry Experience – A contract packaging company can help your business remain at the forefront of your industry. Using their vast experience and understanding of evolving trends with specific products will ensure you remain ahead of the competition. 
  • Best Techniques And Methods – Contract packers have easy access to the best resources for providing a reliable packaging solution that is highly affordable and effective. 
  • Regulatory Compliance – When it comes to packaging pharmaceuticals, OTC products, cosmetics, and other items, careful handling and attention to detail are essential. Contract packaging companies understand this and always operate in compliance with industry-specific regulatory guidelines. 
  • Quality Materials And Designs – Contract packagers have the ability to manufacture safe packaging designs by focusing on product innovation and safety. By using high-quality materials, your company will get the most value for its investment. 

In-House Packaging Solution

Businesses may choose to keep their packaging process in-house to keep outsourcing labor costs to a minimum. A great way to do this is by investing in packaging equipment that can be used in-house.

Many companies choose this route of buying automatic filling machines for sale to keep control over their production. Self-reliance, production control, and reduced service costs are all reasons why businesses may choose to invest in in-house packaging equipment.

Some logistical factors that need to be considered however include maintenance, storage, and labor. A contract packer can offer professional assistance and expert guidance when choosing the best packaging solution. 

LF of America is an experienced and trusted contract packaging and filling company with satisfied clients in a vast number of industries. We are proud to offer businesses with turnkey contract filling services and in-house packaging solutions.

  • Inspection Capabilities: Micro leaks detection

Container Closure Integrity Testing is a non-destructive measurement technology based on the Vacuum Decay Method or Pressure Decay Method (in case of a container with a small neck) performed while the package itself is held within a hermetically sealed test chamber.

Vacuum Decay test measures the loss of vacuum inside the testing chamber as a result of headspace gas leakage from the package.

Pressure Decay measurement system comprises applying a pressure differential into an airtight testing group enclosing the container. The test objective is to detect container leakages by measuring the reached pressure level as well as the pressure change over test time.

The monitoring of the vacuum or pressure level allows us to identify micro leaks and rejecting the faulty container.

The leak testing machine measurement system is designed to identify the presence of leaks on containers due to: (micro) holes, inappropriate sealing, and cracks.
