Singota, a contract service provider to the pharmaceutical industry, invests in state-of-the-art aseptic filling technology 


Bloomington, IN, USA (July 20, 2016) – Singota Solutions has selected Vanrx Pharmasystems’ SA25 Aseptic Filling Workcell
to provide the company’s new contract aseptic filling capability. Singota chose the Vanrx technology for its manufacturing flexibility and the exceptional drug product quality that it can deliver to pharmaceutical companies making injectable medicines.

The Vanrx system provides a completely automated filling process integrated within an isolator. The system is a gloveless, robotic workcell that performs filling, stoppering, and capping processes. Singota customers will benefit from highly repeatable, precision fills with reduced particulate counts versus conventional technology. Unique material handling features allow the versatility to fill vials, syringes, and cartridges.

Alisa Wright, CEO of Singota, commented, “Our clients are facing a market environment with increasing numbers of targeted therapies for smaller patient populations, pressure to shorten development lead-times, and ever increasing drug performance requirements.  We have selected the Vanrx SA25 system with its state-of-the-art technology to give our clients a step change improvement in dealing with these complexities in the drug development business. Of particular benefit to our clients will be the SA25’s system configuration that is designed to reduce loss of scarce and expensive drug products during processing.”

Singota expects to take delivery of the equipment by the end of 2016 with an anticipated start of these services in 2017. The addition of small-scale, clinical aseptic manufacturing complements the company’s existing services that include formulation development, analytical testing, labeling & kitting, and supply chain management.

Chris Procyshyn, CEO of Vanrx, added, “We look forward to supporting Singota as they build a world-class aseptic filling operation. They will be able to take on the most advanced drug product filling challenges and become a critical link in their customers’ supply chains.”
