ABEC Expands Manufacturing Capability of Single-Use Disposable Containers for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing

ABEC establishes ISO-7 cleanroom at its European Headquarters,
Fermoy, Co. Cork, Ireland, enhancing supply assurance for its global
Custom Single Run (CSR®) customers

a leading global provider of integrated solutions and services for
biopharmaceutical manufacturing, today announced the completion of its
second ISO-7 cleanroom for single-use
disposable container (DC) manufacturing. ABEC’s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,
USA, cleanroom has been fully operational since 2015, and the new
Fermoy, Ireland, cleanroom will be operational this April, adding
significant capacity while establishing supply redundancy for ABEC’s
global CSR

Complete, in-house DC manufacturing capability is a key element of
ABEC’s single-use strategy, enabling ABEC to deliver customized DC’s
globally that meet demanding quality and scheduling needs. Identical
tooling and operational procedures at the two facilities ensure
consistency of DC quality and performance. The CSR DC also utilizes
non-proprietary, commercially available materials, instruments, and
components, allowing customers to leverage existing qualification and
validation efforts. These factors combine to provide customers with
unprecedented control of single-use supply chains.

“A flexible and reliable supply of high quality DC’s is critical to
our customers’ single-use manufacturing operations,”
said Scott
Pickering, ABEC President and CEO. “ABEC’s new state-of-the art
cleanroom in Fermoy greatly enhances our DC supply capability and
further reduces our customers’ single-use supply chain risk.”

Partners for ABEC’s cleanroom are: ClearSphere
and Kingspan.
