Aseptic Process Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry

ZETA specialises in the engineering, development, manufacturing, automation, digitalisation and maintenance of customer-specific aseptic process solutions for the pharmaceutical industry.

The engineering portfolio ranges from feasibility studies, concept and basic design to detailed engineering, automation, installation, commissioning and qualification. ZETA is also a one-stop-shop for cleanroom design and employs its own team of experienced HVAC engineers.

The interdisciplinary project teams develop fast-track projects for international clients. Process characterisation, scaling of processes and process design are the key competences of ZETA, from lab to industrial scale.

ZETA provides tailored and innovative solutions during the production process of fermentations. Magnetic mixing technology and process-controlled freeze and thaw systems for optimal agent storage and transport complete the product portfolio.

To speed up the development of customised solutions, ZETA maintains its own R&D department. There is a tight collaboration with customers and various renowned research institutions and universities.

With its 12 subsidiaries worldwide and its highly qualified 800 employees, ZETA experts design, build and automate pharmaceutical and food Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-compliant plants at three European production sites.

Innovative digitalisation strategies for the pharmaceutical industry

Drawing on its experience in the management of major pharmaceutical projects, ZETA offers new digitalisation strategies, which reduce complexity by effectively using digital process data.

These smart engineering services, in particular, the advanced software tool environment and the applications based on the digital twin, are used to generate the highest possible value to customers.

ZETA and Siemens entered a strategic partnership to drive the digital transformation of pharmaceutical processes globally. ZETA assumes the role of system integrator while Siemens acts as the global software platform supplier.

ZETA’s digitalisation strategy does not stop at the commissioning of a successful plant project; it also ensures smooth operation using intelligent tools developed based on digital plant data.

The Smart Maintenance Navigator (SMN) is a descriptive example of this principle: its service guarantees lasting optimisation of the maintenance process on mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones or wearables.

Engineering capabilities for the pharmaceutical industry

ZETA offers consulting and contract work in the areas of planning and engineering, process development and optimisation, smart engineering, qualification services, verification and validation, the installation of piping and equipment, and individual maintenance packages, all with a comprehensive customer care policy.

ZETA offers cutting-edge smart engineering services (SES), based on its established engineering toolchain, to integrate all project delivery partners into one common software-based project framework.

Benefits of ZETA’s SES include a 30% project lead time reduction, fast amortisation and high-cost savings at market entry, as well as decreased labour costs and improved plant performance.

Digital Transformation

Drawing on its experience in the management of major pharmaceutical projects, ZETA offers new digitalisation strategies, which reduce complexity by effectively using digital process data.

Hybrid Systems

ZETA’s hybrid solutions are state-of-the-art and stem from smart engineering concepts that combine single-use-technology (SUT) with traditional stainless steel components.

Bioreactors and Fermentation Systems

ZETA designs customised bioreactors and fermentation systems for the production of active ingredients from cell, yeast and bacterial cultures. The process methodology may be batch, fed-batch or continuous.

Downstream Systems

ZETA supplies customised downstream systems for production, processing and refinement, as well as purification and compounding of biotechnological products.

Preparation Systems

Based on many years of experience and profound process know-how, ZETA offers customised preparation systems for liquid-aseptic parenteral and oral products.

CIP / SIP Systems

An absolute necessity for sterile biopharmaceutical processes is the ability to perform complete and documented cleaning and sterilisation procedures for all parts of a production system.

Magnetic Agitators

The primary advantage of magnetic agitators is the complete separation of the interior of the tank from the outside.

Engineering

ZETA offers consulting and contract work in the areas of designing and engineering, process development and optimisation, smart engineering, qualification services, verification and validation, the installation of piping and equipment, and individual maintenance packages, all with a comprehensive customer care policy.
