Pharmco Case Studies

Returnable Fleet Case Study

Need: A pharmaceutical contract manufacturer required an aseptic method to add pure ethanol to their manufacturing process in precise volumes. They voiced concerns with personnel being exposed to large volumes of flammable material.  

Solution: The customer chose to leverage Pharmco’s pressurized Stainless-Steel Returnable Container program.

Result: Quick connects on the containers allowed them to easily plug right into their manufacturing process without needing to open the container. The pressurization allowed for seamless and accurate dispensing with nitrogen pressure, without ever coming in contact with ethanol or exposing the ethanol to their manufacturing environment.

Diagnostic Case Study

Need: A molecular tool and assay development company required Ethanol as one of the main components for their virus collection and transport device. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the virus collection and transport device was now in desperate need. The customer voiced concerns over ensuring supply chain regulatory compliance and their ability to source raw materials through a period of rapid growth.

Solution: Pharmco provided continuity of supply, various packaging options from bottles to bulk.

Result: As an ISO 9001:2015 and GMP IPEC compliant manufacturer of ethanol, Pharmco leveraged their manufacturing capabilities to eliminate their supply constraints and quality concerns,  helping the customer to maximize batch size, reduce packaging waste, and increase efficiencies of their manufacturing as it scaled. Additionally, Pharmco was able to provide the latest guidance with regards to ethanol’s regulatory requirements.

Custom Blend Case Study

Need: A next generation biologics manufacturing facility looking to operate with maximum efficiency needed to source a buffer solution used in their downstream manufacturing process.  Their application required high purity raw materials that were not off the shelf. 

Solution: Pharmco developed a custom blend meeting the purity, concentration, testing, packaging, storage, and transportation requirements.

Result: The solution enabled the customer to create a more efficient manufacturing process by providing one item to source, test, stock, and buy with single-source ownership of the formulation quality. By outsourcing production to the Pharmco team, they reduced supply chain risks and costs. They were able to pull inventory just-in-time to meet production campaigns without the complexity of managing this process in-house. 

Filtration Case Study

Need: A biologics manufacturer was struggling to source raw materials that were free from particulate matter.

Solution: Pharmco leveraged its filtration expertise and its in-house ISO certified clean room to provide a more refined product that met their strict needs. Additionally, a custom single use bag strategy was employed to further minimize the risk of contamination right up to the point of use.

Result: A consistently high-quality product was provided, that added value to their downstream process and delivered significant savings and efficiencies.
