Biotechnology is the use of biological processes, organisms, or systems to manufacture products intended to improve quality of human life. Recent biotechnology is associated with landmark breakthrough in new medical therapies to treat diabetes, hepatitis B, cancers, hemophilia etc. One of the important biotech products is rDNA human insulin, which was marketed first in 1978.
In modern medical treatment these drugs have gained huge growth worldwide as they play pivotal role in the treatment of diseases.
The manufacturing of these drugs is very critical. Understanding the importance of the critical manufacturing challenges Aristopharma has set up a high standard facility including class 100 clean room, HVAC system etc. for crystallization, filling, sealing of its insulin products. Moreover, to maintain storage temperature it maintains complete cold chain throughout the distribution network with specialized vehicles, refrigerators, cool gel bag etc.
Aristopharma manufactures insulin of 7 categories, i.e. Insulet R, Insulet N, Insulet 50/50, Insulet 30/70, Insulet GN, Insulet Aspart and Insulet Aspart 30/70. It also manufactures erythropoietin in 5 strengths, i.e. Nipotin 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 & 10000 IU and Filgrastim as Filgen. In addition to these, more products like Peg interferon, Monoclonal Antibody, Vaccine etc. are in pipeline of Aristopharma biotech portfolio.
Insulin Crystallization, Filling & Sealing
Insulin is filled by fully automatic high-efficient 12-nozzled machine without any human touch. Stoppering is done automatically. Nozzle no. 1 to 4: N2 gas is purged to make the vial oxygen free > Nozzle no. 5 to 8: Insulin is filled > Nozzle no. 9 to 12: N2 gas is purged again for extra protection from oxidation
Considering the importance of storage temperature (2° C to 8° C) of Insulin the company strictly maintains cold chain for its Insulin from the factory to chemists end. Without depending on others Aristopharma has set up its own cold chain throughout the entire distribution network for its biotech products. Special storage vans, cool gel bags, cool boxes, special refrigerators, skilled manpower etc. are the key components of its cold chain distribution network.
