These are automated techniques to prepare sterile products. The basic concept of the FFS and BFS is to reduce the contamination by forming the container, filling and sealing in a closed sterile chamber of the machine.
There is no personnel intervention to reduce the chances of the contamination during the manufacturing of sterile products. It gives more production at very low operational cost with the high assurance of sterility. The system is being used for over 30 years and reported to achieve contamination rate below 0. Parison reaches to the mould forming the container by the pressure of sterile compressed air. Next, the fill nozzle known as mandrel fills the liquid into the container followed by sealing the neck and filled container is released from the mould.
It takes seconds to produce one container. The capacity of the machine depends upon the number of moulds. Labeling of the containers is done outside the machine. Container formation, filling and sealing process is done in a class area within the machine. The system should be validated by media fill runs before starting the commercial production.
