Oral Solid Formulation / Packaging Building

Formulation

We have manufacturing facilities for oral solid formulation (tablets, capsules, granules) for investigational new drug and commercial products. We have attained a global class high level of product manufacturing capabilities that meet requirements of Japan-USA-EU GMP and PIC/S GMP. By co-locating the investigational new drug and commercial facilities for the oral solid formulations in the same building, we ensure a smooth scale-up to commercial production.

Corticosteroid Ampule injectables and Eye drop formulation / Packaging Building

Formulation

In compliance with PIC/S GMP, we have realized a world class high quality aseptic product manufacturing. Additionally, the storage and manufacturing control of ampule injectables, eye drop formulation, packaging and aseptic API are conducted according to the various laws and regulations and we have implemented thorough measures to confine high pharmacological activity formulation (corticosteroid) within the building. We have experience as a CMO for manufacturing and packaging of ampule injectables and have additional space for a new layout design of new production lines.

Ampule injectables formulation: water soluble injectables, lyophilized injectables, suspension injectables
Containers
Injectables: Glass ampules(1mL,2mL,5mL)
Eye drop formulation: Polyethylene bottles (5ml)

Inspection / Packaging

In compliance with PIC/S GMP and Pharmaceutical Affairs Law, the corticosteroid formulation for injectables and eye drops can be packaged up to 300 ampules/min for injectables and 200 bottles/min. for eye drop formulation. Also, automatic visual-inspection equipment checks the injectables and eye drop formulation for foreign matter, solution volume and appearance and then attaches a label with printed serial number and expiration date. For products that cannot be checked by the automatic inspection equipment (lyophilized, suspension injectables), human visual inspector conducts a 100% visual inspection.
Products with labels attached are inserted into carton boxes along with package insert, inspected and inserted into a cardboard box and then, they are ready for shipment.
Daily operation is conducted with high quality as our number 1 priority.
