Efficient tub sterilization system

The rapid growth in the use of prefilled syringes for drug delivery has given rise to new packaging / handling system for these tubs. Getinge has developed a system for sterilizing them.

The challenge posed by nested syringe tubs, especially for high-speed production lines, is how to transfer a tub that is non-sterile on the outer surfaces to the sterile environment of filling lines.

Using our vast experience in aseptic transfer techniques, Getinge has developed a system for rapid sterilization of the outer surfaces of the tub. The system is integrated with the filling line isolator and can process up to 6 tubs per minute, allowing high-speed lines to run at full capacity (e.g. 600 pcs/m or 36,000 syringes per hour).
