Introduction to AMD

AMD manufacture and provide medical devices in a format designed exclusively for one application, namely the production of aseptically manufactured parenterals.

It is the aim of AMD to ensure devices utilised in the manufacture of drugs are:

  • The best devices for the application and are made available to all scales of manufacturing
  • Optimally packaged for ease of QC, use and transfer into Isolators or LAF
  • Supported by industry leading validation and qualification

Packed devices and combinations are available from individual units right through to packs large enough to support bulk aseptic manufacture. All goods are manufactured in AMD's dedicated ISO Class 7 Cleanroom.

AMD provides optimised medical device transfer sets and accessories which include:

  • Syringes
  • Qualified Cap Closures
  • Needles
  • Filters & Filter Needless
  • Linked Devices
  • Vial Access Devices
  • Customised Procedure Packs

At the heart of the products is one of our core areas of expertise: packaging.

AMD Packaging is made available in PeroxyClear and PeroxyMet making pre-use QC of the contents rapid and accurate. All our pouches are manufactured in cleanroom facilities on site.

AMD Pouches are qualified and validated for gamma sterilisation and compatible with VHP, Alcohol and Hypochlorite/Hypochlorous acid transfer processes.

AMD aims to supply all products in validated primary medical device pouch, then placed in two further sterile barrier pouches within our cleanroom. This ensures compliance with current guidance and significantly improves the transfer time of devices into the manufacturing area.
