Filling and crimping unit for vials

CRP is a precise and compact system for dispensing and sealing vials of radiopharmaceuticals in sterile conditions. It allows safe and rapid radiopharmaceutical dispensing into vials minimizing the operator’s tasks.
It is suitable for any laminar flow hot hell with a dose calibrator pit and tele-pliers.

The main parts of the unit are:

  • Opening/Closing/Crimping unit with:
    • station for rubber cap removing/positioning;
    • station for aluminum ring removing/positioning;
    • station for aluminum ring crimping;
    • actuated arm for vial moving among the above stations.
  • A diluting/filling unit
  • A piercing unit
  • Additional stand-alone balance for faster activity concentration calculation (optional)

The system automatically performs the following functions:

  • It measures both total and specific activity delivered by the synthesis module
  • It dilutes the main vial to the required specific activity
  • It fills open or closed vials, controlling the volume, using a built-in high precision electronic scale
  • It plugs and crimps the filled vial (if open vials)
  • It is possible to carry out the bubble point test (instruments not included) without touching the contaminated filter

A computer and operating software, compliant with GAMP5 and CFR21 (Image 3), are supplied together with a touch screen monitor, an optional dose calibrator and a printer for lead container labels and reports.
