Blow/Fill/Seal Interest Group

Group Leader: 
Chuck Reed
Weiler Engineering, Inc.

The Interest Group for Blow/Fill/Seal (BFS) will focus on the use of polymer as primary packaging material for parenterals (but applying polymers in the formulation of parenteral products).  It will address and discuss issues related to BFS manufacturing but also overall issues around different types of polymers and the use of polymers in parenteral packaging (manufacturing).  The group will also manage and produce guidelines of how LEAN can be implemented within the BFS manufacturing, scientific studies that produce risks and opportunities of Polymer Technology, and, from a scientific perspective, challenge the BFS technology of what is needed further to achieve the technology to be certified as Advance Aseptic Technology or manufacturing.  This is a global Interest Group.  Meetings will be organized in the United States and Europe.
