Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Inspiring Innovation

The 10,000sqm exhibition brought together 350 international exhibitors representing 1,500 brands, where 7,500 visitors – from the sectors of food, drinks, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) – descended on the show to seek out the latest innovations and discuss the industry’s hot topics.

A Platform for Knowledge-Sharing

Looking beyond the traditional manufacturing sector, the PPMA Show 2017 Learning Hub provided a new perspective on relevant trends and issues, as well as skills applicable across all industries. Reflecting this expanded focus, the Football Association’s (FA) Martin Glenn officially opened the show and delivered the keynote address, where he discussed how he imparts his skills and knowledge gained during his 30-year experience in the FMCG sector to head up the FA.

Visitors to the PPMA Show 2017 also heard from TED speaker Peter Anderton, Dr Forbes McDougall, Head of Circular Economy at Veolia and Dr Graham Deacon, Robotics Research Team Leader at Ocado Technology, among others.

As such, health utility can be a key driver of the cost-effectiveness ratio. Obtaining health utility values that are suitable for your economic evaluation, however, may not always be straight forward.

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring

Dycem

A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
