ChargePoint Technology supplies precision containment valves to some of the biggest pharmaceutical names across the globe for the development of medicines and vaccines from their premises in Speke which is home to the largest cluster of biologic manufacturing in Europe.
In the last year the company has taken to market the AseptiSafe® bio valve, which creates a sterile area the size of a dinner plate and reduces the need for the large scale clean rooms and isolators.
The device also speeds up production and protects operators from hazardous products.
ChargePoint Technology are the only company which uses a patented hydrogen peroxide decontamination cycle in their valve to destroy contaminants and bacteria, which makes it the only bio-decontamination valve in history.
The company has also developed a wireless monitoring platform, called VERIFI, that communicates vital equipment performance data to help maximise the reliability, safety and profitability of the production facility and its final drug product.
