Learn more about fill & finish manufacturing
What are aseptic fill & finish services?
At NorthX Biologics, our aseptic fill & finish services involve the delicate process of manufacturing sterile drug products. Aseptic processing ensures that drugs remain free from contamination during their formulation and filling into sterile containers. Our state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities and specialized equipment maintain a sterile environment to safeguard product quality.
The aseptic connection of critical processes is crucial to prevent contamination: our team is extensively trained in aseptic practices, ensuring the seamless flow of personnel and interactions within the cleanroom environment. Stringent aseptic practices are followed during every stage of production to minimize the risk of contamination and maintain product integrity.
How are sterile drug products manufactured?
Aseptic processing is essential to produce sterile drug products. Two main approaches are utilized to manufacture sterile drug products:
- Terminal sterilization: This process involves filling and sealing product containers under high-quality environmental conditions, followed by subjecting the final container to a sterilization process such as heat or irradiation.
- Aseptic manufacturing and sterile fill-finish: In this method, the drug product, container, and closure undergo separate sterilization steps, and then they are brought together (aseptic manufacturing). Since there is no process to sterilize the product in its final container, it is crucial that containers be filled and sealed in an extremely controlled environment (sterile fill-finish). This represents one of the most challenging aspects of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
What Sets NorthX Biologics apart in aseptic fill & finish services?
Specialized facilities and formulation suites
Our cutting-edge cleanroom facilities and formulation suites are designed to cater to complex aseptic processes, such as lyophilization cycles and filling of glass vials. These specialized facilities enable us to handle a wide range of parenteral formulations and ensure the highest standards of product quality.
Comprehensive risk management and safety assessment
We place detailed attention on risk management and safety assessments. Our experienced team conducts thorough risk assessments to identify potential risks, such as microbial contamination, and implements risk mitigation strategies to safeguard product safety.
Isolator technology for enhanced contamination control
At NorthX Biologics, we employ isolator systems to enhance contamination control during aseptic fill & finish processes. These advanced systems provide a physical barrier, isolating the drug product from the external cleanroom environment, reducing the risk of contamination and ensuring product safety.
Personnel training and quality control team
Our team at NorthX Biologics undergoes rigorous training in aseptic techniques and cleanroom protocols. The personnel's flow within the cleanroom is carefully planned to maintain an aseptic environment. Additionally, our dedicated quality control team conducts thorough safety testing to ensure that all products meet the highest quality standards.
Stringent contamination control
We implement meticulous aseptic practices and aseptic connections to minimize the risk of contamination throughout the fill-finish operations. Our isolator systems and isolator technology provide an added layer of contamination control, reducing external cleanroom environment interactions.
Comprehensive personnel training and quality control
Our highly trained personnel follow strict protocols and flow within the cleanroom environment to maintain aseptic conditions. Additionally, our quality control team conducts rigorous safety testing, ensuring that all drug products adhere to regulatory guidance and levels of quality.

When should aseptic filling be used?
The FDA emphasizes that aseptic manufacturing and sterile fill-finish should be employed only when terminal sterilization is not feasible due to the increased risk associated with aseptic processing. However, as formulations become more complex, an increasing number of drug products and containers cannot be terminally sterilized due to degradation or loss of performance when exposed to heat or radiation.
