First PDA TR of 2017 Offers Best Practices for BFS

Mar 06, 2017

PDA’s first technical report of 2017 offers the latest best practices on blow-fill-seal (BFS) technology. Technical Report No. 77: The Manufacture of Sterile Pharmaceutical Products Using Blow-Fill-Seal Technology features practical considerations for companies using this technology as a replacement for standard fill-finish practices.

PDA worked closely with the BFS International Operators Association (BFS IOA) to develop this document.

BFS refers to technology that integrates plastic blow molding and aseptic filling on a single machine with the final container being created within the machine just prior to aseptic filling. The final container is then hermetically sealed immediately after filling in one continuous operation.

Technical Report No. 77: The Manufacture of Sterile Pharmaceutical Products Using Blow-Fill-Seal Technology is now available for purchase from the PDA Bookstore. Full members can download a free copy of TR-77 until March 16; all members can view it at the PDA Technical Report Portal.
