G-CON Manufacturing and Vanrx Pharmasystems Announce the Launch of Microcell POD

Collaboration creates the first turnkey aseptic filling facility for advanced therapies.

G-CON Manufacturing, the leader in prefabricated, flexible cleanroom solutions, and Vanrx Pharmasystems, known for its advanced aseptic filling machines, today announced the companies are working together to offer the Microcell POD, the first and only turnkey facility for aseptic filling of advanced therapies.

The Microcell POD is comprised of Vanrx’s Microcell Vial Filler installed inside G-CON’s award-winning prefabricated cleanroom POD. It is the only fully integrated, pre-qualified, pre-installed aseptic filling facility with the ability to be shipped globally. The new product supports both organizations’ missions of providing solutions that bring products to market faster. The Microcell POD requires a lead time of only 3 months.

“Companies making targeted drug products including gene therapies, mRNA, and personalized cancer vaccines have to a lot of problems to solve in bringing these new modalities to market. It makes sense to combine the Microcell with the G-CON’s POD products because it provides certainty of performance and speed to market, while automating the crucial step of aseptic processing within an agile, completely closed system,” said Chris Procyshyn, CEO and co-founder of Vanrx.

“Advanced therapies are rapidly entering a maturity stage in which clinical material or commercial manufacturing capacity are needed. Companies want to fast track with reliable budgets and delivery times, and avoid long, expensive design phases. Our new POD product is standardized and fully designed to fulfill the delivery time need. Moreover, filling capacity is and has been a major bottleneck, so G-CON joined forces with the Vanrx team to create a fully functional, prequalified filling package for our customers.” Maik Jornitz stated. “We are very happy to have the ability to supply a key critical manufacturing step as a drop-ship product to the industry.” 
The Microcell POD is ideal for drug development, and the manufacturing of personalized medicines and clinical trial supplies.

G-CON and Vanrx are exhibiting at Phacilitate Miami, January 21–24, 2020 with an in-booth presentation leading up to the “G-CON / Vanrx East Coast Roadshow Tour” in April. To learn more about the Microcell POD, register to attend our upcoming product launch events:
