TACOMA, WA – AST, a leading innovator of advanced aseptic filling and closing systems developed for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, recently announced the release of its new GENiSYS® R product line for aseptic filling and closing of nested ready-to-fill vials, syringes and cartridges.
The GENiSYS® R system is a robotic aseptic filling and closing machine designed to solve the unique challenges associated with small batch sterile production common to cell, gene and regenerative medicines. GENiSYS® R’s adaptive approach uses flexible robotic automation to process ready-to-fill vials, syringes and cartridges on the same machine. The machine’s peristaltic dispense system gently doses each container directly while on an electronic balance to provide 100% fill weight inspection. This solution handles sensitive and valuable biologic materials with care and ensures each container is filled to specification. GENiSYS® R offers standard modular configurations that allow the system to be easily tailored with isolator-barrier systems, lyophilizers and other critical process systems without the schedule and expense of system customization.
“The GENiSYS® R is a game changing solution for cell, gene or any small batch aseptic filling application. Until now manufacturers had no ideal options for producing these small batches in an efficient manner and in accordance with strict cGMP requirements. The GENiSYS® R bridges the gap for late stage clinical and commercial products by integrating advanced aseptic features, process and container flexibility within a simple and compact system,” says Josh Russell, AST’s Vice President of Business Development.
AST – Over 10 years ago, AST revolutionized the aseptic fill/finish industry with the ASEPTiCell®. Using robotics and advanced automation, this system was the industry’s first multi-format filling machine capable of processing ready-to-use vials, syringes and cartridges using a single machine. Today AST is recognized as an industry leader in flexible aseptic filling and offers an extensive range of products that support drug product development, clinical and commercial needs using AST’s GENiSYS® Lab, GENiSYS® and ASEPTiCell® product lines.
