DUNCAN, SC – Long dedicated to developing robotic solutions for the medical, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, Stäubli Robotics has become a first choice for meeting the specialized demands of cleanroom environments. While delivering Stäubli’s trademark speed, precision and reliability, the TX Stericlean goes the extra mile by addressing factors critical to protecting both personnel and products from contamination.
The Stericlean series of 6-axis robots, including the TX40, TX60 and TX90, is designed to meet the stringent requirements of VHP (Vapor Hydrogen Peroxide) decontamination in isolator-barrier systems. Complex surface coatings and full encapsulation enable it to withstand corrosive H2O2. Its specialized technology also eliminates restrictive enclosures, problems related to glove ports and heavy mechanical arms, and other challenges related to using robotics with isolator systems. For example “shadow areas” on and under a device that can elude VHP can be effectively sterilized, since the robot arm is methodically moved during sterilization.
In addition to thoroughly addressing product contamination issues, Stericlean eliminates the chance that human operators will be contaminated by toxic drugs during syringe filling operations, or suffer from repetitive motion injuries.
