Robotics in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

“Robots are proving advantageous in filling, inspection, packaging, laboratories, and the manufacture of personalized medicine.”

Automated inspection and packaging are increasing in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.  There are many benefits to this within the pharmaceutical manufactures.  These benefits include: efficiency in saving money with reducing training hours, eliminating human error, saving workers from hazardous environments and removing potential for human contamination.

Robots are ideally designed for cleanroom processes.  Meaning, particle generation is minimized, speed is controlled, heat is managed as well as ventilation and air conditioning.  All of these elements affect drug products that a robot would not be affected by if the work environment was constantly changing.

These robots in the pharmaceutical manufacturing companies are used for filling, inspection and packaging vials.  They are built to perform specific functions and can continuously do the task in uniform and tirelessly. To have an automated syringe assembly, inspection process and packaging preparation would lead manufactures to save money and reduce the number of mistakes with the workflow.

Robots can be personalized to produce one specific medicine and can automate changes when needed for a continuous workflow. Upgraded technology is always needed when working with medicine, vaccines and other pharmaceutical parenteral drugs for humans.  With InQuest Science’s Identifier Software, all data is tracked and traced for any manufacturing change in labs.
