Le but de cette étude était de développer un programme de simulation spécifique pour la validation d’un robot cytotoxique, KIRO® Oncologie, pour la préparation d’anticorps monoclonaux stériles et de médicaments anti-infectieux.
The aim of this study was to develop a specific simulation program for the validation of a cytotoxic compounding robot, KIRO® Oncology, for the preparation of sterile monoclonal antibodies and anti-infectious drugs. The impact of excipient formulations was clearly measured using simulation accuracy tests with worst case excipient (i.e. viscous, foaming) and allowed to correct the robotic settings prior to real production. Corrections brought accuracies within the acceptable range of ±5%. KIRO® Oncology robot has also the capacity of self-cleaning and a simulation combining media fill test, and environmental monitoring was able to validate the aseptic process including simulation of worst case conditions and highlighting the areas not accessible to self-cleaning to be corrected by additional manual cleaning measures. The risk of chemical contamination was simulated by using fluorescent dye of the process with high-risk excipient formulation and overpressure vials. Quality control reliability was simulated by using a model drug, and final concentration was determined by high-performance liquid chromatography-ultraviolet detection. Finally, productivity was simulated using different models of production showing the impact of the type of drug, the number of vials and the poor standardization of the process.
