Pre-sterilized syringes save time and money - offering expedited process validation Utilizes convenient, easy to handle transport containers Two full-function fillers offer lower equipment investment and eliminate excess unload/reload machinery in a significantly smaller footprint Integration Advantage allows seamless integration with barrier and isolation systems Bosch Packaging Technology announces that it now offers its customers nested style syringe filling capabilities along with its complete offering of in-line filling and particle inspection equipment.
Bosch customers now have the ability to implement pre-sterilized "nests" of syringes (SCF) into their automated syringe filling applications. The pre-sterilized syringes ship directly from the manufacturer in a plastic container overlayed with a Tyvek® seal. The containers enable clean and convenient processing because the syringes never have to be taken out of the nest during filling, which eliminates the need for excess unload/reload machinery. The nests also provide a unique design for convenient handling, stacking and storage. And because the syringes are pre-sterilized, they are also pre-certified for particle-rated clean environments. Bosch nested syringe filling equipment can also be integrated directly with Bosch barrier and isolation systems for a compact, cost-effective and easily validated filling solution.
Based on 40 plus years of experience and a modular function approach used on in-line syringe filling machines, Bosch engineers designed two full-function nested syringe filling models that offer the highest process capability, speed and performance - with Bosch quality. The FXS 2020 low-speed and the FXS 5100 high-speed nested syringe fillers and closers deliver accurate filling-needle precision and adaptability to different formats and products. Rotary piston pumps deliver highly accurate filling volumes and fast filling times of up to 4,800 syringes per hour with the FXS 2020 and 30,000 per hour with the FXS 5100. Both models are equipped to handle glass and plastic syringes for a variety of application demands. The FXS 2020 and FXS 5100's compact footprints offer more space savings over traditional in-line filling systems - at almost half the size. Also included in the line are a Bosch automatic bag opener, Advance- BEAM electron beam tub sterilizer and Automatic Tub Opening System (ATO). Bosch is also the only company to offer a particle inspection system included with its line of filling equipment. The CVT(TM) Slitec(TM) particle inspection system delivers accurate particle inspection of the product and offers optional cosmetic inspection of syringes. CVT series machines range in output between 200 to 600 containers per minute, depending on the application. With this complete line of equipment, customers not only receive reliable, high-quality machinery, but also the optimal performance and technological innovation of a Bosch design.
