Inspection and Packing Line
Bayer inspection and packing line
Bayer produces the radioactive cancer drug Xofigo at the Institute for Energy Technology in Norway (IFE). In 2016, Cody got the exciting assignment of developing and building an inspection and packing line for the medicine, based on past experience and collaboration with Bayer.
With a high focus on user-friendliness, operator safety and the demanding requirements that apply when building equipment for radiopharmaceutical production, Cody has created a solution that is tailored to IFE's production premises and needs. One of the challenges has been to create a machine with good operator accessibility while controlling the radiation hazard from the medicine at the same time.
The machine design ensures that the user doses are automatically inspected and packaged, as the radiation hazard indicates that this cannot be done manually. The control system is complex and manages all vital production steps, including visual control of labels and packaging through advanced camera technology. Cody's proprietary database solution TITAAN handles batch reporting, reconciliation, logging of critical production instrumentation, electronic signatures, and more. This is made according to the current pharmaceutical production directives.
