Aseptic Production Automation To Reduce Risk And Cost

By Sergio Mauri, Manager, Global Integrated Projects, Fedegari Group

The use of robotics and automation in the industry is not new. For several decades now, many assembly lines have utilized production robots in different functions to increase productivity. Although human operators result in a potentially risky activity in sterile areas, pharma manufacturing remains heavily human. This article discusses how to apply current isolation technologies with robotic systems to reduce the risk of microbial contamination in aseptic processes caused by human intervention.
