Study Product Manufacture and Packaging
Atlantia can offer several food grade production areas. The Bioprocessing Unit (BPU) is an access controlled clean room suite specified, designed and equipped to produce bioactive materials for human studies in a state-of-the-art, high-quality bioprocessing infrastructure. The facility has been designed to meet ISO-14644-1 Class 8 standard where product is exposed. This is the only facility of its type in Ireland, and they are limited in the EU.
The Pilot Plant unit is built to a controlled Class 100,000 clean room level and finished to a high standard. The unit is independently serviced and comprised of a suite of laboratories, production rooms and ancillary service rooms such as a weighing room, autoclave room.
The core process in the GMP Food facility will be fermentation of microbial bio-actives and other beneficial food micro-organisms in a controlled environment for use as dietary supplement ingredients. The cultures generated by fermentation will be further processed firstly by harvesting the biomass or bioactive components by filtration and then freeze drying to stabilise the bioactive material.
Thus, we have the following capabilities:
- Fermentation, 25 & 100L
- Freeze drying (batch)
- Placebo manufacture
- Capsulation model
- Tablet model
- Packaging (blister, bottle, bulk, dosed)
- Formulation advice
