AqVida bringing advanced oncology offers to euroPLX Vienna
Press Release | AqVida GmbH
MAY 18, 2017
Hamburg, Germany: AqVida, the German Oncology supplier, has developed a portfolio of medicines for treating the most common types of cancer and has recently stepped up production in its ultra-modern production facility, located in Dassow, Germany. AqVida will be available for business at euroPLX 64 in Vienna (29 – 30 May 2017).
AqVida will use the event as a platform to meet new potential business partners for licensing its impressive oncology portfolio. This includes oncology generic products like Imatinib, Oxaliplatin, Paclitaxel, Irinotecan, Docetaxel and Gemcitabine as well as its new generic generation like Sunitinib.
Advanced oncology generics
The company’s expertise in the development of generic oncology products has made AqVida a leading partner in the pharmaceutical industry, ensuring its place as one of the most important suppliers for oncology products, to multiple German and European pharmaceutical companies.
“We offer our portfolio to partner companies as in-licensing deals based upon MA transfers,” explained Jürgen Lehmberg, Commercial Director at AqVida, who will represent the company in Vienna.
“Our company has differentiated itself from the competition through short lead times, uncompromising quality standards and a high degree of supply flexibility – always maintaining off-the-shelf stock for our most in-demand products,” said Mr. Lehmberg.
“With our new manufacturing site, AqVida expects to increase this supply responsiveness even further. This aim, coupled with quality aspirations that extend beyond GMP requirements, has been the dominant theme guiding all the planning and construction of the Dassow facility”, Mr. Lehmberg added.
The novel engineering concept of the new facility involved designing a filling line with no format parts, based entirely on robotic vial handling. This novel approach not only drastically reduces set up times compared to a conventional filling line but also makes it possible to change vial format within batches with minimal interruption, using a closed isolator. The technology delivers measurable improvements in both efficiency and product safety.
Other innovations at Dassow include sustainable clean-room panels sourced from the UK-based company MRC provide a seamless finish to the clean room, as most of the furniture and coving is built into the wall panels themselves. AqVida is the first German company to use this high quality material in a new-build facility project.
High quality materials and advanced technology ensure that the site redefines the state of the art for aseptic filling of highly potent substances, where the complete process from compounding to innovative robotic filling is contained within isolators.
Additionally, through backward integration, AqVida is able to control the value within the entire chain; from generic development of products and related dossiers, through registration procedures, commercial production and finally supply of the products.
“When compared to the conventional German model of using third-party contract manufacturing facilities, AqVida, with its high degree of integration, truly offers a valid and sustainable alternative, with unrivalled advantages for all companies seeking high-quality oncology products, and this is a message we will be delivering very strongly at euroPLX 64 in Vienna,” says Wolfgang Heinze, CEO and founder of AqVida.
