Joining forces to fight COVID-19
Optima has pulled out all the stops to deliver a filling system to the US-based company Catalent at its Biologics facility in Bloomington, Indiana. The vial system with an isolator will be the second vial line installed at the site and is intended to be used initially for the filling of a candidate vaccine to fight COVID-19. For the first time in Optima’s company history, one of the world's cargo aircraft, the Antonov An-124, was chartered for transportation. At the end of August, the system reached its destination in Bloomington on time, after Optima worked in close collaboration with logistics companies from the area.
