Reducing Particulate Contamination and Risk By Ionizing Materials & Workflows During Manufacturing
Presented by: Michael Radovan, Director of Business Development – Life Sciences, Simco-Ion Technology Group, A Dovision of ITW
Static attraction, as a root cause, is responsible for the vast majority of particulate contamination yield losses and market issue/recalls experienced in many life science manufacturing operations. Drug delivery devices, vials, syringes, flexible bags, catheters, stents, heart valves, optical lenses, hip/knee replacements, pacemakers, blood filters, breast implants and other implantable devices, etc. – essentially all plastic or insulative materials – are affected by static. Recent studies across many companies manufacturing these types of insulative materials have shown that substantial reductions in particulate contamination results result when the electrostatic attraction (ESA) problems were eliminated via ionization technology.
3:30 pm – 4:00 pm AutomaTech, Inc.
