Based in Waterlooville, Hampshire, BioPure manufactures biotech components that have become the standard in biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing. Part of Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG), BioPure’s rigorous adherence to ISO Class 7 standards for its clean rooms showcases its capabilities to buyers and regulators alike.
Due to the critical clean room 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.
Collaboration to reduce contamination
Teknomek worked in collaboration with BioPure, taking account of employee welfare and clean room risk management, to create the ideal specification to support operational process and minimise risk. As is the standard for clean rooms, hygienic design was critical, including minimised risk of trap points, mobile furniture to support robust cleaning and ventilated products for air flow.
Teknomek supplied furniture throughout BioPure’s site, including changing room, clean room production, development and quality assurance. The range included step over benches, wash troughs, dispensers, lockers, production work benches, storage, racking, and waste bag holders. Teknomek’s clear compliance with key clean room requirements supported the ease of selection from Teknomek’s wide range.
High-quality, reliable 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.
Steve commented, “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.”
