Focusing on the impact of digitization on pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and patient care the “PDA Drug Delivery of Injectables Conference” took place in Taipei, Taiwan from November 12 to 13, 2019. One of the goals of this conference was to answer the following questions: How can primary packaging and the fill-finish process interact? Which devices such as pens, auto-injectors and wearables with electronic functions are available on the market? What is the current status of digital technologies in an aseptic environment? And what are the advantages for the patient?
Matthias Angelmaier – Product Manager for Barrier Systems and Isolator Technology – answered first questions with his lecture “Challenges and Solutions for Small Batch Production Filling Lines”. In the lecture series “Manufacturing: Modern Concepts for Facility and Filling Operations” Angelmaier presented current challenges for the industry as well as case studies on realized customer projects in different countries and gave an outlook into the future. In these case studies, various small batch applications for bulk as well as pre-sterilized containers, aseptic and aseptic high-potent applications were discussed.
Afterwards Angelmaier went on to the “3rd Annual Aseptic Processing Summit” in Vienna. This congress offered a broad overview on current changes in the European regulations of the pharmaceutical industry, trends in the fill-finish sector, as well as new technologies and innovations such as Industry 4.0 in everyday pharmaceutical production. In addition to many industry representatives, the experts Matthias Angelmaier and Isa Alkan – Director of Sales and Project Management at Bosch Packaging Technology subsidiary Schoeller Bleckmann in Austria – deepened the key topics of aspetic processing.
In Angelmaier’s presentation “Aseptic meets high-potent – setting the stage for next level ADC processing” almost 100 participants could follow in form of case studies that the demand for aseptic high-potent fill-finish machines is subject to constant growth, flexible machine concepts as well as isolator technologies are increasingly in demand, and the relevance of the suitable overall concept and interface design for high-potent applications continues to rise.
Matthias Angelmaier has a bachelor’s degree in industrial and mechanical engineering as well as a master’s degree in business development. He joined Robert Bosch GmbH in 2009. During his first 3 years, he was a project manager for handling complex customer projects. Since 2012, he has been the globally responsible product manager for barrier systems and isolator technology. His expertise includes process engineering, sterilization, bio-decontamination, aseptic and high-potent Isolator applications, glove testing systems as well as topics related to advanced aseptic processing.
