At the end of June 2019 Swissfillon AG started the implementation of the new 10ml cartridge format for the West Smart Dose application. After a 3-month implementation and qualification phase, the production team, together with external partners, has successfully converted the system for the upcoming filling process. This first customer-specific GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) filling is planned for the 4th quarter of 2019.
The foundation stone for this was laid with the signing of the contract between Swissfillon AG and West Pharmaceutical Services at the beginning of 2019. This enabled the knowledge of a provider of aseptic filling services for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and a leading global provider of innovative solutions for the administration of injectable drugs to be pooled.
