Safe, Flexible, and Efficient Containment

The demand for, and development of, new oral solid dosage forms for oncology and hormone therapy is increasing – and so is the demand for containment solutions. When processing these highly potent substances, the protection of machine operators is paramount. At the same time, the quality of the final product is crucial since patients' health depends on it.

But how much containment is really necessary, and how can it be implemented economically and flexibly in the cost-intensive pharmaceutical industry? Ultimately, only a combination of modern and highly efficient systems with automated cleaning, proven processes, and years of expertise form the basis for successful containment.

NOEL, OEL, and OEB

The occupational exposure limit (OEL) for active substances can be determined in micrograms per cubic metre (μg/m3) by means of no observed effect level (NOEL) and the required safety factors. The OEL is the time-weighted average concentration of a substance in the air at the workplace, at which no acute or chronic damage to the health of employees is to be expected. The regulation is based on eight-hour exposure five days a week during working life.

The Rare Disease Patients Experience

When planning a clinical trial for a rare disease, it is important to have a holistic understanding of your patient population. You want to be aware of where your patients are coming from, and what it is like to walk in their shoes. These patients need your trial just as much as you need them; even from the earliest stages, conceptualize your rare disease trial as an altruistic relationship between the patient population and your study.
