Following last year’s success at Interphex, Marchesini Group will be returning to the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York for the new edition of the premier pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device development and manufacturing event in the US.  This year again, Marchesini’s team is anticipating a well-attended booth especially with the additional attraction of the new Extrafill Syringe Filler at the trade show. Extrafill is made in Marchesini’s facility in Siena, Italy to fill and stopper nested syringes. It has been developed to meet the growing demands of packaging disposable pre-filled syringes in the North American market.

Extrafill is a compact machine, designed to accommodate from two to five filling and stoppering stations and can produce up to 12 thousand pieces per hour. Batching precision is guaranteed by systems that center the syringes and completely protect them during the filling phase to avoid contamination and to ensure a sterile process. Extrafill is equipped with rotating piston pumps and an innovative statistical batch control weighing system, which offers economic and technical benefits compared with traditional solutions.

All the production phases are integrated in one monobloc unit designed to combine the two tub opening and syringe filling/stoppering operations under just one isolator. 

A significant innovation of the Extrafill is a robotic arm, which peels off the Tyvek® protective film and pushes the tub of syringes onto a loading belt to continue towards the filling and stoppering stations. The robot - a gripper system that moves just like a human hand - is the outcome of research and development activities carried out by Marchesini Group aimed at devising a specific system capable of handling the product with outstanding efficiency in sterile conditions.

Marchesini’s booth will be staffed by technical experts from the factory as well as the experienced team from our US office, which is now celebrating its 25th anniversary in West Caldwell, New Jersey. 

“Interphex is really one of the “best-in-class” meeting places in the world” said Roger Toll, Executive Vice President of Marchesini Group USA. “At our booth, customers will discover a winning mix of innovation, technologies and knowledge, intersected with the full spectrum of cutting-edge development and manufacturing equipment, to create innovative solutions and improve performance and synergies in the pharmaceutical market. This year again, we will answer all their enquiries about aseptic and packaging areas of the industry. We are expecting even more visitors than last year”.
