AmericanBio Expands Fill-Finish Capabilities to Support Rapid Growth in Molecular Diagnostics Industry

AmericanBio, a premier provider of custom reagent manufacturing services, announced a major update to its fill finish capabilities with an advanced automated filling-bottling-packaging system. The new fully validated system allows the company to expedite customer orders, while assuring that each order is delivered with superior efficiency and improved filling accuracy.

According to an article from Genetic Engineering News, on average, biotech companies outsource 81% of their fill-and-finish requirements. Many smaller biotechnology companies with no in-house biologic fill-and-finish capabilities outsource 100% of their requirements. Even biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies with in-house fill-and-finish capabilities outsource 40% of their requirements. With explosive growth in the molecular diagnostics industry, AmericanBio can now better serve the growing needs of these companies while providing the quality, value and customer service that customers have come to expect.

The upgraded filling-bottling-packaging system features an automated piston filling system with accomplished line speeds ranging from 8 bpm to 60 bpm. AmericanBio’s capabilities support fill volumes from 2 milliliters to greater than 2000 milliliters, and fill and label bottle sizes from 3 milliliters to 2 liters.

“It is part of our ongoing investment to provide solutions that meet the growing needs of the biotech and molecular diagnostic industries,” said Vincent Cooney, Jr., President of AmericanBio. “We’re in a period of dynamic growth in the space, and our customers need a flexible partner that understands the industry. We’re excited to be in a position to even better serve our customers with improved efficiency and faster turnaround times.”
