The prefilled syringe advantage


Prefilled syringes are not only easy to use, they also uphold the strength, quality, purity or potency of the drug over its shelf life. As a delivery system, it ensures the appropriate dosage is administered to the patient avoiding human error, especially in emergency situations or remote locations where access to a healthcare professional is often a challenge.

INTRODUCING Fabtech’s FilPac machine, ingenious technology that saves lives

Fabtech’s FilPac machine has been designed and built to conform to GMP standards. It meets the most stringent quality requirements of the pharmaceutical industry in a wide range of formats and will meet the varied needs of every customer.

This ingenious system comprises of

1. Robotic Tyvek Removal System

  • Automatically opens tub barrels and peels them off
  • A de-lidding and de-lining machine to open sterile tubes
  • An infeed conveyor
  • A waste receptacle
  • A lid removal station

The system allows for the gentle transfer of the pen tub to the filling machine and can be enclosed in ORABS/CRABS/Isolator as per product requirement

2. Syringe Filling and Closing Machine

This machine is a fully Automatic filling and closing machine to process disposable, nested syringes. It is designed in a modular system and prepared for max 5 pumps output from 6000/hr (2 land) up to 8500/hr (5 land). It has a compact, superior construction and the highest dosing accuracy that also assures sterility throughout the entire process. Size changeovers are easy to execute and settings for dosing volume, filling needle movement and stopper position are easily reproducible. It is a time pressure filling system with peristaltic pumps. This machine is available in manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic infeed system.
