Biologics, Sterile Manufacturing, Medical Devices

For protection and strict standards in aseptic processing cleanrooms, turn to Camfil for air filtration solutions for the biopharmaceutical and medical devices industries.

Without air filters, we wouldn’t be able to safely manufacture medical devices, vaccines, gene therapies, highly potent drugs and other life-critical pharmaceutical products. Strict requirements and regulations define cleanliness levels. And it’s no wonder – after all, airborne contamination directly impacts the quality of pharmaceutical products and medical devices.


High tech and biotech need the cleanest air possible

Manufacturing biological drugs (biologics) is a unique and complex process. Biologics are made of proteins from living organisms that have been engineered to produce therapeutic proteins in large quantities. They are extremely sensitive and can be negatively affected by even the slightest process change.

Similarly stringent requirements exist for medical devices that are used in critical applications. They are subject to strict regulations, so their manufacturer requires cleanrooms to ensure that they meet those regulations. 

Filling pharmaceuticals is a highly critical process that requires a completely clean and controlled environment. Filtration systems help to maintain cleanliness levels throughout the different process zones, whether ISO 5, 7 or 8. In all of these situations, airflow needs to be controlled to prevent cross contamination from infiltrating the final product.

Different aseptic processing areas have different requirements

Aseptic processing facilities require different air filtration solutions for each of these areas:





Wash and prep

Depyrogenation tunnels and sterile preparation rooms

High-end pre-filtration for minimizing total cost of ownership and protecting critical areas


Efficient HEPA filter systems for smooth cleanroom operations 


Increase depyrogenation tunnel throughput with Absolute D-Pyro, the most efficient high-temperature filter on the market


Aseptic filling

Mini-environments like restricted access barrier systems (RABS) and isolators

Megalam® and push-push filters for work environment protection


CamSafe™ range to protect workers and the environment

Packing areas

CamCleaner™ for maintaining a clean, safe warehouse
