The Flexicon FPC50W from Watson-Marlow, Wilmington, Mass, is a fully automated filling, plugging, and capping system that handles filling requirements for clinical trials and medium-batch production with peristaltic aseptic filling technology from 0.1- to 100-mL fill sizes. A Wipotec weighing cell measures the weight of each individual fill with an accuracy rate of ±0.002g, and is connected to the filling system to enable fully automatic recalibration of the pump throughout the batch. Additionally, the unit can employ a changeover of the single-use fluid path to adapt to multiple batch processes or different product fill volumes. The system is equipped with an automated precision turntable in-feed, an in-line filling station, and a rubber plug closure applicator that is capable of filling and capping vials at rates up to 20 VPM.
