The Microcell Vial Filler is a vial filling machine used to manufacture personalized medicines and perform drug development.

Meet the Microcell Vial Filler.

Small batch flexibility or standardized manufacturing? Why not have both?

The Microcell Vial Filler is a closed robotic isolator for pharmaceutical vial filling. But don’t let size fool you, the Microcell was built for agility and fast changeover. A dream for making personalized medicines or clinical trial supplies.

 

Microcell

Leading biopharma companies using the Microcell include Roche/Genentech, Adaptive Phage Therapeutics (APT) and Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing.

Overview

The Microcell Vial Filler provides aseptic filling for injectables including gene therapies, mRNA and personalized cancer vaccines.

Speed to market

Manual or semi-automated filling in biosafety cabinets or glove box isolators can take over a year to integrate. But your drugs are life-saving, so why delay getting them to patients?

With a delivery time of just 3 months and customers reaching GMP production within 6 months following their purchase order, the Microcell helps you get your essential therapies to those that need them faster.

The Microcell fills pre-sterilized, nested vials in tubs for personalized medicine applications.

Agility

The Microcell can fill up to four different drug products in an 8-hour shift. Single-use consumables and a fast 15-minute decontamination cycle reduce fill and changeover times, helping you make more drugs for more patients.

Drug product quality

The Microcell provides an optimal aseptic process in a completely closed gloveless isolator. Superior drug product quality results from advanced automation that removes the need for operator interventions and limits product contact to a single-use flow path.

Particle risk is reduced with the use of press-fit closures with integrated stoppers to overcome the quality problems of crimp capping and stopper bowls.
