H2O2 and E-Beam decontamination (Marcel Stocklin, Skan)
A common technology to decontaminate rooms and isolators is the H2O2 decontamination method. A typical decontamination of an isolator is divided in four steps: The preconditioning, conditioning, decontamination and aeration.
The H2O2 decontamination is a surface decontamination, therefore materials and their surface used in an isolator, is of importance as shown in the material studies.
Another well accepted surface decontamination is the E-Beam method. Electron beams are directed towards the object to be decontaminated and damages the DNA of any pathogen. This method is mainly used to decontaminate the surface of tubs before they enter the class A zone in an isolator.

New concepts for aseptic processing of syringes (Markus Hoersch, Bausch & Stroebel)
Bausch + Ströbel, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical equipment, will present their new concepts for aseptic processing of syringes. Today’s principal topics will be the processing of syringes in bulk and in nests.
The processing in bulk with an individual transport system comprises the following steps: removal of syringes from the trays, washing, sterilizing, filling, closing and insertion of syringes into trays.
The high speed processing in nests comprises the steps: tub debagging, removal of foil lid and liner, filling and closing of syringes. Further processing of syringes consists of labelling, plunger rod insertion, assembly of safety devices and back stops.
