Aseptic Transfer of Pharmaceutical Closures

The supply of sterile pharmaceutical closures into a filling line is an essential element of the production of parenteral drug products. In addition to sterilizable bags, West offers closures in aseptic transfer bags &ndash; referred to as &ldquo;port bags&rdquo; or &ldquo;ported bags.&rdquo; Port bags contain a &ldquo;beta&rdquo; port that is attached to the actual bag <strong>(Figure 1).</strong>
