Some pharmaceutical products may be sensitive to oxygen and moisture present in atmospheric air. As a result, they often need to be protected with an inert gas in order to avoid product degradation and maintain drug efficacy. A number of therapeutic proteins are packaged under nitrogen during fill-finish operations to prolong their shelf-life.
Air Liquide provides engineering support including sizing, consumption estimates, and equipment recommendations. In addition, we provide gas handling safety expertise and a range of resources, including Certificates of Analysis (CoA) upon request.
