Vanrx Microcell wins Interphex ‘Best in Show’ award
The Best in Show award is “recognizes accomplishments and display in the use of knowledge, innovation, and state-of-the-art technologies to achieve extraordinary levels of quality, production goals, and objectives—ultimately transforming critical and affordable life-enhancing ideas to finished drug products.”
“This award is a credit to the creativity of our employees, who identified an unmet need in the production of cutting-edge medicines. They worked tirelessly to bring the Microcell to market, and now will support our customers in implementing these systems into manufacturing operations. Vanrx thanks the judges and the broader pharmaceutical community for acknowledging our efforts. We believe strongly that life-saving medicines should be as widely available as possible,” said Chris Procyshyn, chief executive officer of Vanrx.
The Microcell Vial Filler was acknowledged as filling an unmet need early in the drug product supply chain. It enables drug development activities (formulation, toxicology, stability, etc.) to happen earlier in a drug product’s lifecycle. This saves time in pre-clinical and clinical development, saving time in the patent window, and helping users reach the market faster.
The Microcell is also credited for allowing safe and rapid scale-out in the manufacturing of personalized medicines—cell & gene therapies and immuno-oncology products—from clinical through commercial manufacturing. Its standard design can be built quickly, enabling companies to add more capacity in months, rather than years. Robotic automation and single-use product contact materials eliminate the risks of manual filling and cross-contamination, respectively.
INTERPHEX is the premier pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and device development and manufacturing event staged in North America each year. More than 10,500 industry professionals and 600 industry-leading suppliers participate in the event. The Interphex exhibitor awards are judged by a panel of industry experts.
