Clinical fill and finish

BioConnection offers clinical fill and finish for your products. Our capabilities include liquid fill or lyophilization intended for vials or prefilled syringes. Fill and finish is the core of our company!

Clinical scale fill and finish

BioConnection fulfills the needs of innovative (bio)pharmaceutical companies by offering flexible state of the art development and GMP compliant manufacturing services for sterile Drug Products, for both clinical trial and commercial scale manufacturing.

The cornerstone for our offering is our manufacturing plant in Oss. This plant complies with EMA and FDA regulations. Here, we can provide you with the automated fill of clinical-grade cGMP products in vials and syringes, both liquid and freeze-dried. We offer handfill of vials and in almost any other container format, leading to a very flexible approach. And, due to the efforts of BioConnection, we provide a seamless transfer from the handfill unit to the automated unit.
