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 regulation is based on eight-hour exposure five days a week during working life.
