Puretech’s AquaZero distillation system was recently supplied to Scotland-based contract manufacturing organisation Andersen Caledonia. The system will enable the company to wash glass vials prior to sterile packing in its ISO 5 cleanroom. The vials will then be supplied to be filled with vaccines.

This project had a very tight programme, and it was imperative that no delays were experienced during the project. With travel restrictions in place across Europe and with no clear understanding of what restrictions would be in place in the future, using a UK-based company was a high priority. A virtual factory acceptance test (FAT) was carried out to help keep the project on schedule and avoid delays.

“To ensure speed of delivery and consistency of supply we decided to source locally to fulfil this contract,” said Jonathan Lintott, managing director of Andersen Caledonia. “Puretech’s proven expertise in water for injection (WFI), its local engineering support and responsive customer support made them a valued partner for this important contract.”
