Personalized medicine is in the bag at Kiefel

The increasing popularity of custom-dosage plastic infusion bags has prompted German company Kiefel GmbH (Freilassing) to launch a compact system that fills and plugs infusion bags semi-automatically. The SmartFill system enables individually prescribed liquid medications and small filling orders to be managed quickly and easily. The company will showcase the technology at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The pharmaceutical industry, laboratories, hospitals or large pharmacies can use this modular system with a space-saving design to fill individual dosage volumes of 50 ml or more with absolute accuracy and reliability, says the company.

An automatic retractive suction feature prevents dripping, and the filling process can be modified to suit user requirements. Fully integrated and automated Cleaning in Place (CIP) and Sterilisation in Place (SIP) components maintain strict hygiene during the production process. The system is compatible with manufacturing execution and enterprise resource planning software.

Kiefel, which develops plastic film processing systems for the medical, automotive, refrigeration and packaging industries, is exhibiting at stand E90 in hall 3.
