A special highlight of the Lyo Summit is the opportunity to tour Recipharm Wasserburg.
Recipharm is a leading CDMO (Contract Development and Manufacturing Organisation) in the pharmaceutical industry. Recipharm offers manufacturing services of pharmaceuticals in various dosage forms and production of clinical trial material, including API and pharmaceutical product development. Recipharm manufactures more than 400 different products for customers ranging from Big Pharma through to smaller research and development companies.
The Recipharm Wasserburg site is located 55 km east of Munich in Germany and has 270 employees. Recipharm's FDA approved facility in Wasserburg has long-term experience in contract manufacturing of sterile injection preparations. The manufacturing programme comprises aseptic production of Small Volume Liquids (SVL) in vials/ampoules and Lyophilisates in vials. Terminal sterilization of SVL can also be applied. The site utilizes state-of-the-art highly automated equipment and has six lyophilisation plants with a total shelf space of 190 square meters.
Recipharm installed tempris in 2010 in their cGMP freeze dryer environment for commercial production. The site tour will enable you to observe tempris use in a sterile manufacturing area, including but not limited to tempris antenna feasibility with the lyophilizer, CIP/SIP compatibility of tempris components, sensor vials introduction into the automatic filling lines and the features of the tempris data monitoring and visualization software. You will also have the opportunity to learn how tempris as a PAT tool will help reduce the primary drying time in lyophilization.
