This innovative process mitigates risks associated with the sterile biologics manufacturing. However, tight control of parameters is critical. The risk of contamination is always present throughout any pharmaceutical manufacturing pipeline. That risk is particularly acute in biologics fill and finish. For that reason, a growing number of biologic manufacturers are turning to novel aseptic (sterile) [...]
