CHALLENGE

Optimizing system safety in RABS and isolators

Pharmaceutical manufacturing presents unique challenges. In order to enhance safety and quality, the industry has adopted Advanced Aseptic Processing (AAP) systems, using automation, robotics, machine vision and separative devices to prevent contamination.

Separative devices include Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS) and isolators. Isolator-Barrier Systems and ANSI/RIA R15.06 (safety requirements for robot systems) all focus on restricting operator a
