Use of single-use systems in hospitals and laboratories
Hospital pharmacies that prepare medicines must satisfy the same quality requirements as the pharmaceutical industry. These pharmacies can produce medicines that had previously been withdrawn from the market. They can also help out if there is a shortage of a particular medicine.
Keeping production lines sterile
Production pharmacies at hospitals often opt for single-use technology (disposable components and assemblies). They mainly do this in order to keep production lines clean and sterile. There must be absolutely no risk of products getting mixed up with each other (cross-contamination) or of bacteriological contamination. That means that cleaning, validation and strict quality controls must be implemented exactly according to the statutory regulations. This is labour-intensive and expensive. The use of single-use components, including single-use filtration products, has a number of advantages. These products for once-off use are supplied in a sterile state.
Together with hospital pharmacists and lab technicians, we try to find the right solution with single-use systems in order to optimise and shorten processes, prevent risks and reduce costs.
Single-use even for sampling
The same applies to the laboratories in hospitals, and of course also to laboratories in scientific or Government institutions, universities or companies. Here, single-use sample-taking bags also have their advantages. As soon as a sample has been taken, it is really easy to remove the sample-taking bag. The set was developed and fitted with a single-use sterile disconnect realised by means of a “cut & seal” action. This produces a perfect sterile sample in a bag, ready for use in a laboratory or for quality control.
