Aseptic Process Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry

The ZETA portfolio includes the design, construction, automation, digitalization and qualification of systems for aseptic liquid production processes.

As a general planner, ZETA manages the high complexity of large pharmaceutical projects and reduces interfaces in a targeted manner, including planning the process plant, designing the clean room and equipping the technical building. This one-stop-shop approach reduces valuable time and costs in project implementation and actively contributes to the rapid market launch of biopharmaceutical active substances.

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.

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.

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.
ZETA´s hybrid systems combine Single-Use and Stainless Steel components in one facility. ZETA is a global pioneer in the engineering of hybrid systems.
ZETA´s 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 engineers and builds customized aseptic process solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, such as bioreactors and fermentation systems, downstream systems, preparation systems, pure media systems and CIP and SIP systems.
ZETA designs 100% customizable bioreactors and fermentation systems starting from 10l to 30.000l for the production of active ingredients.
ZETA is your specialist for magnetic sealed agitators. The services ZETA provides include design calculations for specific processes as well as CFD simulations for critical mixing applications.
ZETA provides best-in-class kLa measuring methods. Benefits i.a.: measurement in real time, free choice of process parameters, adaptability to different gassing systems, optimised agitator geometry, improved quality and safety.
ZETA develops and implements automation concepts for liquid aseptic production processes.
In ZETA´s own R&D department innovative products and cutting-edge technologies are developed. Successful developments have been e.g. bottom-mounted magnetic agitators for xxl fermenters, modular bioreactors, and top mounted vessel agitators.
Expertise in technical building equipment is of utmost importance in cleanroom design. ZETA is a one stop shop for cleanroom design and employs its own team of experienced HVAC engineers.

With its 17 subsidiaries worldwide and its highly qualified 1,000 employees, ZETA experts design, build and automate pharmaceutical and food Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-compliant plants.

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’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.
