If machines are designed as an entire system
for highly potent substances,
the safety of human life and product is maximized.

Processing of highly potent substances: The whole picture decides

Optima Pharma developed a comprehensive and holistic process for the filling and processing of highly potent substances. The processing of highly potent pharmaceuticals requires special procedures to guarantee highest safety for human life and the product.

Many functions relate to each other and require a view of the entire picture. The individual consultation and design by Optima Pharma includes sophisticated room, pressure and waste water concepts since room and machine are only a totally functional system when they interact correctly. In addition, cleaning and decontamination are significant. Simulations of the cleaning process during the design phase support the correct layout.
Contamination plays a significant role. During the isolator design two different filter concepts are available – High Performance Filter and Bag-in bag-out Filters. An optimized machine design is also essential if highly potent substances are processed. This especially includes removable, and therefore, easy to clean, transport systems.
