Ecublens, Switzerland: – Powder handling and containment specialists Dec Group will be bringing its specialized high-containment solutions to Europe’s leading high-potency active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPI) event, the HPAPI World Congress in Basel, Switzerland.

The ever-increasing interest in high potency API development and manufacturing requires containment solutions that can be applied to the high regulatory and requested low operator exposure levels of HPAPI manufacturing. Occupational Exposure Limits of below 1 micron per m3, multi-product use of sterile potent compounds and maintaining clean room environment and operation in both sterile and non-sterile conditions are major challenges that manufacturers face.

To cope with these requires innovative technologies that Dec Group will present as an exhibitor at Stand 22, at the event at the Basel Congress Center.

High Containment Manufacturing Excellence

Based on its process containment technologies and proprietary Powder Transfer System (PTS) Dec is significantly experienced in providing comprehensive process solutions from the powder input from any process plant to the isolator and further.

The Dec team will include Andrew Lemaire, ‪Head of Containment & Micronization Technologies.

“With the increasing use of HPAPI’s pharmaceutical manufacturers will be obliged to keep up with extensive containment solutions throughout their production process,” said Mr. Lemaire.

“At HPAPI World Congress we will be able to reach out to professionals involved with HPAPI processing, technical and safety perspectives to show that Dec Group has capacity to design high containment and aseptic process isolators including dedicated powder handling equipment for safe charging and discharging into the next process step,” Mr. Lemaire commented.
