Designed for the bulk production of freeze-dried APIs, company has developed a complete freeze-drying system with automatic handling of product trays under aseptic conditions, integrated into a containment isolator. Specifically designed for the freeze-drying of materials such as polypeptides, the handling of which can involve a exposure risk for operators, the system incorporates a containment isolator between the product and the operator which allows a level of operator exposure of less than 1µg/m3 to be achieved and maintained throughout the course of an eight-hour shift. The isolator’s main chamber, of vertical laminar flow, contains the mechanisms that automatically feed and extract the product trays from the freeze-dryer chamber. The system features two independent TSCs (Tray Storage Carts); one connected to each side of the main chamber of the isolator, where the product trays are stored once the freeze-dried product has been unloaded. Following the freeze-drying process, the dry product is removed from the trays using a vacuum system, which transports it to a cyclone where it is separated from the airstream and collected in a hopper, to be transported to the next step in the production process.
