SKAN US launches NANOX Catalyst Technology at Interphex show

Published: 20-Mar-2017

The technology enables higher catalytic efficiency in breaking down hydrogen peroxide when sterilising isolators

SKAN, a specialist in pharmaceutical aseptic isolation and hydrogen peroxide-based sterilisation technologies, will launch its newly patented SKAN NANOX Catalyst Technology at stand 3140 at the US equipment show Interphex.

"SKAN is well-known for developing and validating robust, high quality isolation systems with one of the fastest decontamination cycles in the industry,” said Larry Cabeceiras, President, SKAN US.

“The patented SKAN NANOX Catalysts were developed in cooperation with leading Swiss University utilising nano-particles."

This catalyst was engineered to enable higher efficiency breakdown of hydrogen peroxide at lower temperatures with performance far superior to any other catalyst available on the market today.

With the launch of our SKAN NANOX catalyst technology, the company continues to innovate by reducing the overall time and energy required for hydrogen peroxide based decontamination and aeration, while positively impacting the effect on the environment.

SKAN is also highlighting its award winning modular small-scale aseptic processing isolator, Pharmaceutical Safety Isolator, (PSI-L) with SARA Material Airlocks for conventional aseptic applications.

The PSI-L is a modular and extendable isolator system with a unique L-shaped flange, which enables quick equipment changes to host different filling machines or other pharmaceutical processes. The short decontamination cycle and the return air filter (FIPA) make it a universal, aseptic workspace for the production of aseptic and/or highly active pharmaceutical products.

The isolator and the product machine modules fit together on the “lock-and key” principle. The basic unit (L-flange) of the isolator is equipped with an inflatable seal to ensure that the machine module is connected hermetically.

The PSI-L enables aseptic production in cleanroom Grade A conditions with individual production modules installed to fit on the lock-and-key principle, for instance, a machine for processing syringes in nests or a filling and closing machine for vials.

Interphex takes place March 21-23, 2017 at the Javits Center in New York, New York.
