The first automated vial-filling line adapted to the new closure device is being previewed at the CPhI in Frankfurt.
ARaymondlife is a pharmaceutical company GMP EU, specialized in plastic injection molding and fastening solutions. Its technological expertise is applied to develop innovative solutions for the pharmaceutical laboratories (for human health and veterinary medicine) and the medical industry. Since 2012 ARaymondlife has been offering its own range of patented all plastic caps as an alternative to aluminum crimped closures.
RayDyLyo® is more than a product; it is a solution that simplifies and improves the process security of the vial capping operation. Several packaging options are available in bulk or in nests to meet the market’s diverse needs. The trend toward ready-to-use components and filling vials directly in nests makes RayDyLyo® a very well-adapted solution. RayDyLyo® eliminates the need for crimping by pre-assembling the stopper in the cap and closing the vial by simple vertical pressure, either automatically or manually.
Dara Pharmaceutical Packaging is showing the first vial filling line specially adjusted for filling and capping vials with RayDyLyo® at the CPhl in Frankfurt (24-26 October 2017). The Spanish company responded to ARaymondlife’s request to develop a suitable machine for feeding the allin-one solution (a stopper pre-assembled in the plastic closure) and the specific parts needed to adapt the line. Pre-assembling the stopper upstream simplifies the process compared to a traditional line by eliminating the stopper placing and crimping operations and saves space in the clean room.
« We believe that this first filling line will be introduced to the market progressively, but we are convinced that this product will gain significant market share in the medium term. DARA new vials filling lines, are ready to implement this new technology. Also and this is the most important thing, DARA old machinery, due to its modularity construction, allows an easy, economical and fast retrofit, to combine this new RayDyLyo® system with the traditional stopper and alu cap technology. RayDyLyo® is a highquality product that fits perfectly with Dara’s filling lines. » says Joan Melé, Dara Pharmaceutical Packaging Commercial Director.
For its development, ARaymondlife has already concluded other partnerships, in particular with the “Matrix Alliance”, on the initiative of Vanrx Pharmasystems, allowing to propose an aseptic filling solution in a fully robotized isolator, or more recently with Disposable-Lab Eurofins.
Amatsigroup to offer to biotechs and pharmaceutical companies a global solution for the aseptic filling of innovative biological products. “We want to continue to develop industrial partnerships such as the one with Dara Pharmaceutical Packaging because we are convinced that we are stronger together and that the answers we bring to the market are more relevant,” explains Nicolas Thivant, President of ARaymondlife.
