Lowering the risk of personnel induced contamination: The use of robotics in aseptic processing

Jan 26, 2016
One of the most problematic issues of aseptic manufacturing is the involvement of personnel. Human presence generates millions of particles every minute. Some of these particles are biologically active and can generate product contamination. Now, technology can create a revolution by removing human intervention from the aseptic manufacturing process to reduce its impact on product sterility. Stainless steel GMP robotic arms have been introduced to handle fill finish operations within a gloveless isolator. The advantage of this process, apart from sterility improvement, is the possibility of handling Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPIs) like cytotoxic drugs in a flexible and cost-effective way. This article goes through all the main features of the gloveless robotic solution and describes a cluster tool concept for an advanced aseptic production facility.
