Mobile Cleanrooms & USP 797/800 Pharmacies
Germfree operates a fleet of advanced mobile cleanrooms for compounding sterile preparations and handling hazardous drugs. These turnkey units meet all FDA cGMP and USP 797/800 requirements. The highly durable 53’ foot (16 meter) trailer incorporates separate work zones and all biosafety and laminar flow equipment. They are engineered as fully self-contained facilities that can function independently at any site and relocated as needed. We offer leasing options to match the duration of your campaign.
On-site, On-demand, On-time & In-Control of Your Clinical Trials
Controls for aseptic conditions, cGMP-compliance and personnel safety are of paramount importance. USP 797/800 compounding facilities that meet these standards are generally limited to dedicated sites in traditional buildings. Germfree’s Mobile units provide a new range of solutions for managing drug trials.
BioPharmaceutical companies, CROs and SMOs are discovering many advantages to administering trials within close proximity to the clinical investigation sites. This is particularly relevant for dispensing compounded sterile preparations and newer biologicals. Germfree’s Mobile Cleanrooms can help you manage biopharmaceutical studies across multiple sites and mitigate logistical challenges.
Drug development and the biotherapeutics pipeline are evolving rapidly. Concurrently, many of these newer drugs have become significantly more complex to administer; fragile medications have special requirements relating to time-sensitivity and drug stability. Further, maintaining the cold chain can be cumbersome and costly when coordinating multiple sites. Quality control must be assured at every step of the chain: API production, drug preparation, clinical investigator, physicians and trial participants.
Germfree’s Mobile Cleanrooms can also be deployed to promote the overall integrity of biopharma drug trials. By providing a consistent, drug compounding platform, variables can be accounted for as the unit is relocated to other test sites. Additionally, our mobile facilities can assure that a study is fully blinded from the investigator. By maintaining optimal logistics and data management, delays can be averted and TTM improved.
Germfree – The Engineering Control Experts
It is imperative for cGMP-compliant USP 797/800 facility to have properly integrated engineering controls. All HVAC, air filtration and containment systems must be precisely configured. Germfree has extensive experience in manufacturing mobile cleanrooms that meet these critical demands.
Our Mobile Cleanrooms can utilize shore power or integrated onboard diesel electric generators, water systems and VHP gas decontamination. The HVAC and integrated components are designed to run efficiently in all climates.
Germfree pioneered this new approach to mobile drug compounding. Our unit was the first certified USP 797/800 Mobile Cleanroom to be deployed for service. We currently have these facilities operating in many locations.
