Pharmaceutical contract manufacturing allows companies to outsource development, manufacturing, and analytical needs.
Outsourcing is a common practice in the pharmaceutical industry as it improves chances of success, saves resources, and lets teams focus on other aspects of getting a product to market.

Our specialty is aseptic processing.
Aseptic processing is a technique that requires a lot of training and expertise to perform successfully. Each component is sterilized separately during this type of processing before being put together in finished form. At AnovaFill, the container (vials) is sterilized through the traditional method, dry heat in a depyrogenation oven. Closures (stoppers and seals) are sterilized through steam sterilization in an autoclave. The drug product is sterilized through sterilizing filters.
If your product can withstand the process, we also offer terminal sterilization. This is a sterilization process in which the components are brought together into the finished form and then sterilized simultaneously through steam sterilization in an autoclave.
At AnovaFill, we work with small-batch liquid injectables (1,000 to 30,000 units) intended for clinical trials and commercial markets. We specialize in scaling up from benchtop, and our experienced team is ready to help you get your product to clinic or market.
