Tired of Hand Filling? AST's Benchtop Systems Could be Your Answer
Posted on Oct 19, 2017

Aseptically processing small batches of sterile drug products has many unique challenges that have to balance cost, flexibility and quality. Normally for small batches companies default to manually filling and processing approaches with very little automation. Unfortunately, given the intimate interaction manual processing has with these products, contamination risk and process variability can be high. AST's new benchtop family of products are specifically designed to minimize the risks associated with aseptic productions of small batch sterile pharmaceutical and biotech products.
