“Evolving Your Process to Blow Fill Seal
A How to Session”

Hosted by Michael H. Bellm President, Life Scientific
Presented by Brevetti Angela Srl
June 3rd, 2021 @10:00 AM CST

We partnered up with Brevetti Angela Srl for an educative session on How to Evolve your process to Blow-Fill-Seal.

In this session, you will learn about the benefits and the considerations of switching or upgrading to Blow Fill and Seal technology. We will cover the complete process, various applications, applicable molds, performance, and financial scope.

We will also walk through some comparative case studies on the process of transitioning to BFS technology and much more.

Blow Fill and Seal technology is mainly used for pharmaceutical solutions. The examples of pharmaceutical solutions that can be packaged are injectable solutions, antibiotics, ophthalmological drops, suspensions, infusion solutions, solutions for dialysis, solutions for irrigation and solutions for hemofiltration. Besides this main field of application, this technology has been used also for packaging of fresh fruit juice, non aerated drinks, milk and various cosmetic products including creams.

The process begins with the Extrusion of plastic granules in the form of a hot hollow pipe of molten plastic called a parison.

The following step is the Blow moulding of the container from the plastic granule.

The subsequent step is Filling of the formed container from the top, which is still open (and still in a “hot molten” state).

The next step is Sealing the top of the container, which is still open and in a hot molten state.

The final steps are for De-flashing to remove the flash or scrap, trimming the containers and delivering the containers outside the machine.

“How to Get a Clean-Room Designed, Built and Certified in Less than 5 Months”
Hosted by Michael H. Bellm President, Life Scientific
Presented by Aseptic Enclosures
January 7th, 2021 @10:00 AM CST

At Aseptic Enclosures, we were planning a presentation to review the design/build process for our Mobile cleanroom suites. Our typical application has been pharmacy USP 797/800 compliant builds. This Zoom session was be held on Thursday, 01/07/2021 at 10:00 am Central. It lasted approximately 35 minutes + Q&A time.

Our mobile clean rooms are designed to be a permanent, fully furnished, fast and economical solution to the traditional “stick-built” approach. They have the added benefit of portability. We build the configurations in shipping containers which yields an impressively durable installation.

Units can be of various sizes. They can be stacked, combined, craned, forklifted or supplied on a leveling chassis for placement flexibility. The design process is crucial for a successful build. Our team of architects, engineers, equipment planners and representatives work with our clients in the initial needs assessment process.

After the assessment is complete, we work on submission of our first sign-off document, the conceptual design. Usually, within just a few days, we are able to submit an exceptionally detailed 3d model for evaluation and comment. Typically, after just a few iterations we have “sign off” and begin ordering long lead items and producing detailed construction documents for final approvals.
