Application -
Handling of Radiopharmaceutical Drug within a Vial that is placed inside a Lead Pot

TQC Medical were involved from feasibility study through process validation exercise and then into the full engineering of the automation system for the handling of lead pots that contained radioactive vials. The system incorporated mobile freezers and robotic handling to manipulate and transfer the product quickly and effectively. The drug needed to be maintained below -23 degree C and processed away from human contact. Empty freezer units were docked in place, these were then filled with empty pots for chilling. Once chilled the pots were at temperature they were robotically unloaded, filled with the vial, and then using a second robot a second freezer unit was loaded.
