BioPure and Teknomek collaborate on risk management

Teknomek has worked with BioPure to take account of employee welfare and cleanroom risk management, to create the ideal specification to support operational process and minimise risk

BioPure and Teknomek have collaborated to deliver optimum workplace efficiency and hygiene confidence.

Due to the critical cleanroom standards its customers operate in, BioPure's reputation relies on exceptional hygiene from the moment staff arrive at work. Rapid turnaround times are also required in order to provide customers with the necessary equipment for the development of essential life-changing medicines. As such, BioPure needed to optimise its workplace and operational processes whilst minimising any risk of contamination.

Based in the UK, BioPure manufactures biotech components that have become the standard in biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing. Part of Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG), BioPure's adherence to ISO Class 7 standards for its cleanrooms showcases its capabilities.

Reducing contamination

Teknomek worked in collaboration with BioPure, taking account of employee welfare and cleanroom risk management, to create the ideal specification to support operational process and minimise risk. As is the standard for cleanrooms, the hygienic design was critical, including the minimised risk of trap points, mobile furniture to support robust cleaning and ventilated products for airflow.

Teknomek supplied furniture throughout BioPure's site, including changing room, cleanroom production, development and quality assurance. The range included step over benches, wash troughs, dispensers, lockers, production workbenches, storage, racking, and waste bag holders. Teknomek's clear compliance with key cleanroom requirements supported the ease of selection from Teknomek's wide range.

Equipment

Steve Stubbs, Technical Operations Project Manager at BioPure, recognised the importance of high-quality products that would last a long time and deliver optimum workplace efficiency. This was key to support BioPure's fast turnaround times and deliver essential equipment to its customers.

Stubbs said: "Since our first order from Teknomek in 2012, we have been consistently impressed by the hygienic product design and their understanding of the importance of reducing risk. Their reliable service means I can place orders and forget as they arrive on time every time. I always feel our business is in safe hands."
