The first edition of Ares Day was celebrated on October 22nd and 24th, in Bogotá and Medellín respectively. Under the slogan “Integral technological solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry”, Ares Representaciones brought together 60 key players of the Colombian pharmaceutical and biotech industry with the leading manufacturers of the sector to share knowledge and technological developments.
The representatives of the companies such as Dara Pharma (manufacturer of aseptic filling equipment), Högner (sterilization equipment) and Airplan (clean rooms and liquid and semi-solid manufacturing equipment), with the collaboration of Vestilab (control equipment in clean rooms), were in charge of giving 2 conferences and develop the following topics:
1. “Steam Quality in Autoclave Sterilization”, given by Guillermo Sorci (Högner).
2. Valentí Sellarés (Airplan) shared the experience in “Design and construction of Sterile Areas”.
3. David Ral (Dara Pharma) presented the “New technologies for the treatment of RTU materials”.
4. Álvaro Yepes (Vestilab) analyzed the “Risks of contamination in the manufacture of sterile medicines”.
Later, during the round table sessions, the participants had the opportunity to discuss and analyze all the presented topics.
Positive comments were received from the attendees who highlighted deep technical value of the presentations and productive and profitable networking. All this ensures that there will be a second edition of Ares Day in 2020.
