Ajinomoto Althea Adds Fill-Finish Line
Ajinomoto Althea, a San Diego, California-headquartered contract development and manufacturing organization, has installed and launched a new sterile vial-filling line using Optima VFVM 7000.
The aseptic fill-finish line adds to Ajinomoto Althea’s drug-product manufacturing capabilities and supports drug substance active pharmaceutical ingredients compatible with both peristaltic and rotary piston pump-filling systems. This new filling line expands Ajinomoto Althea’s capabilities by enabling larger batch sizes and a broader range of filling volumes (0.2 mL up to 100 mL). The new line reduces product loss. The equipment also provides 100% in-process-control, nitrogen purging, and several additional features.
