Robot Works in Isolator Systems

Sept. 1, 2009
The Stericlean robot is billed as a major breakthrough in efforts to automate processes within barrier isolator systems used in aseptic processes in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical device industries. 
Designed to protect both personnel and products, the Stericlean robot will withstand corrosive H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) used during regular sterilization processes by employing complex surface coatings and full encapsulation. The technology eliminates restrictive enclosures and problems related to glove ports and heavy mechanical arms, plus other factors that undermined previous attempts at using robotics with isolator systems. In addition to addressing product contamination issues, Stericlean robots also eliminate the chance that human operators will be contaminated by toxic drugs during syringe filling operations or will suffer from repetitive motion injuries.
