Make a Clean Sweep with Teknomek’s New Anti-bacterial Cleaning Range

Teknomek Ltd


Teknomek has introduced a new range of anti-microbial cleaning tools designed to minimise risk in labs and cleanroom environments by reducing the potential for cross-contamination. The new products include brooms, deck scrubs, squeegees, scrapers, spades and buckets, all are available in a choice of five colours to support area segregation.

All components in the accessories are infused with Biomaster, including the brush filaments. This anti-microbial silver-ion additive is effective for the lifetime of the product and inhibits the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99%.

Sue Springett, commercial manager at Teknomek, says: “This is no margin for error in high risk environments. Despite strict hygiene policies and controls, contamination is always a significant concern.

“The new anti-microbial range offers a simple way to help contain even the most resilient bacteria, such as MRSA, in their tracks – and without having to modify cleaning procedures. The colour coding also reduces the margins for human error.”

The high-quality brushes are resin set so the filaments won’t shed, all products in the range are both dishwasher safe and autoclavable at temperatures of up to 134°C.

Sue Springett concludes: “Businesses in the pharma sector go out of their way to ensure staff adhere to hygiene best practice and make significant investments in hygienic furniture. As such, it would make little sense to then overlook other potential risk areas. Our anti-microbial range fills in the remaining gaps in the defence, providing an additional layer of reassurance.”

The new accessories are fully compatible with Teknomek’s recently introduced anti-microbial shadow boards and chairs. For more information about the company’s full anti-microbial range, please visit https://www.teknomek.co.uk/anti-microbial-products or call 01603 788833 to request a catalogue.

Pharmaceutical and Medical Industry Increasingly Demands Automated Testing Solutions

After the manufacturing processes in pharmaceutical and medical industries reached a high level of automation in recent years, manufacturers are more committed to automating their testing processes as well. Production-related tests as well as tests for product release are to be largely automated. In addition to higher specimen throughput, an increase in reproducibility through the elimination of operator influence is a main objective for manufacturers. Zwick Roell offers various levels of automation for testing syringes, insulin pens, and auto injectors.

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
