Aseptic Filling Operations

GMP Aseptic Fill/Finish Services

Flexible, responsive scheduling. Quality product.

With aseptic filling operations in the U.S. and Europe, ABL provides our clients with the scheduling and logistical responsiveness needed to support global trials.  Whether as part of a comprehensive development and GMP production program or to address drug product filling on a stand-alone basis, we integrate vialing, inspection, labeling, testing, and storage and distribution activities to meet the often demanding timelines for the provision of clinical trial materials.

ABL maintains an isolator-based line specifically designed to fill live virus products in Strasbourg, France. Our Rockville site also supports filling of live virus in addition to filling therapeutic proteins and other biological products for clinical trials.
