Sterile Forms

Manufacture of sterile liquid and lyophilized vials - Fill & Finish process

We produce injectables for clinical or commercial scale, specializing in short and medium quantities.

Fill & Finish Aseptic filling


We are developing and manufacturing sterile products in glass vials (from 2R to 20R ISO formats) and in ampoules.


Our technology is based on aseptic filling following sterilising double filtration at 0.22µm, with a possible final autoclaving step (fill and finish).


Our expertise and our facilities enable us to handle a great variety of active ingredients, and in particular:

  • Narcotics and psychotropic products
  • Synthetic peptides
  • Oily products
  • WFI-grade water.

Our highly flexible equipment produce batches ranging from 0.5 to 200 litres, which makes it possible to manufacture clinical and feasibility batches.




We can design and manufacture lyophilized vials ranging in size from 2R to 20R ISO formats.


To ensure that the freeze-drying cycle is robust and the product is stable, the proposed development will include:

  • Formulation
  • Physical-chemical properties of the formulation
  • FDM (Freeze Dry Microscopy) collapse temperature
  • Development of the freeze-drying cycle on laboratory equipment
  • Characterisation of the freeze-dried product and its morphology
  • Scaling up to commercial viability

Our workshop is flexible enough to produce lyophilized vials for clinical or commercial batches and placebos.
