    Embodiments of hub and spoke aseptic processing system are disclosed. In one embodiment of the current invention, a spoke aseptic processing system aseptically unloads an aseptic product from an aseptic container. The aseptic product is aseptically transported in the aseptic container from a remote site. One or more pre-filtered dilution base products are sterilized. The aseptic product and the sterilized base products are sent to an aseptic pressurized blending unit to form a final product according to a predefined formula without breaking sterilization. The final product is aseptically packaged to a finish product without break the sterile chain. In other embodiments of the current invention, a monitor and tracking system is connected with the system to monitor, track and log aseptic information. The information collected can be further uploaded to a network connected central database.
