In the July/August 2020 issue, Pharmaceutical Engineering published data gathered through the latest ISPE Barrier Survey: Tracking the Journey of Barrier Technology. CRB’s Lisa Dorn, along with Jessica Frantz of Sartorius Stedim Biotech and Paul Valerio of IPS, dive into the meaningful conclusions that can be drawn from the results. The three first shared this information at the 2020 ISPE Aseptic Conference earlier this year.  Below is an excerpt from the feature:

The results, representing over 900 filling applications from the participating industry suppliers, showed some interesting and welcome trends. The most relevant and intriguing results are outlined here. The presentation from the 2020 ISPE Aseptic Conference with all results has been posted on the ISPE Sterile Products Processing Community of Practice site and on the website for the 2020 ISPE Aseptic Conference attendees.

The most notable outcome was the clear trend toward the use of barrier systems and the near extinction of “traditional” cleanroom installations for aseptic filling. Respondents indicated that, in 2020, virtually no systems would be delivered without a form of RABS or isolator, illustrating that the industry is decidedly moving to the use of barrier systems. This is great news for patients and product safety.
