Industrial equipment in a cGMP environment

Concentration and isolation equipment

Kyrapharm has access to all of Orgapharm’s industrial concentration and isolation equipment (distillator, reactors, filters, dryers) in a cGMP environment.

About thirty industrial reactors and twelve others in the pilot plant can allow solvent concentrations at atmospheric pressure or under vacuum. Purified products can be crystallized and isolated into agitated filter dryers, in order to prevent any contamination. These equipment allows the direct drying or the product without any transfer.
When centrifuges or monoplate filters are required, Orgapharm can also dry products in ventilated ovens.
For any operation of treatment of eluting solvents or isolated products, Orgapharm HSE and QA policies are applied; Orgapharm being a FDA certified site.
