How robotic technology contributes to ensure aseptic production and mitigate risks in manufacturing processes.
Pharmaceuticals that get contaminated can cause significant health problems after distribution and use. The evolution towards a safe and reliable industry, together with the optimization of resources, is leading pharmaceutical companies to increase the efforts in automation. In addition, the minimizing of occupational hazards, people first, has always been the centre of all actions at all levels in the industry, but even more when it comes to handling products that are substantially hazardous to human health. To mitigate risks from both perspectives, human and product, the pharmaceutical industry is starting to open up to the possibility of adding the benefits of robotics technology to the current production processes. This article will discuss the technical feasibility and benefits of using remotely controlled robots with Isolator technology.
