Pharmatek has expanded its packaging services with the installation and qualification of an automated bottling line at its cGMP facility in San Diego, CA. The addition supports increasing customer demand for larger scale productions. The line will be fully operational in November 2013.
The bottling line, manufactured by CVC Technologies, supports both small and large volume clinical packaging projects. It includes a Cremer electronic channel counter, capper, induction sealer, re-torquer and high speed wrap labeler. The system is integrated with a CVC electronic conveyor system and redundant quality inspection stations.
"Our investment in automated clinical packaging illustrates our commitment to our customers' need for strategies that streamline supply chain management and speed supplies to the clinic," said Pharmatek president Tim Scott. "This is an important enhancement to our offering, enabling us to continue to support our customers throughout their development program and into larger scale operations."
