Gas detection in Pharmaceutical industry

Pharmaceutical Industry and Gas detection systems

The pharmaceutical industry includes the research, development, production, and commercialization of drugs and medicines. Contributing to the prevention and management of a wide range of medical conditions, this industry plays a crucial role in the global health care system. Investment in R&D of new drugs and treatments is critical to the future of the industry, as is optimization of the production and distribution departments. In addition, in order to be sold, all pharmaceutical products must meet strict safety and quality standards, whether those set by the European Medicines Agency (for the EU market) or those of the U.S. Food and Drug administration (for the U.S. market).

Gas-releted risks in Pharmaceutical Industry

Several gas-related hazards ariseMajor gases detected in Pharmaceutical Industry inside the many processes in the pharmaceutical industry, making the use of gas detection systems mandatory. 

Risks may include:

  • explosions caused by flammable substances
  • high toxicity from solvents and APIs
  • risks associated with oxygen deficiency

Highly sensitive sensors enable timely and accurate detection of a wide range of potentially hazardous gases, ensuring a safe working environment for employees and compliance with safety regulations. Additionally, within the production department, they allow monitoring for toxic, flammable or volatile gases that are not only a source of danger but could also compromise product quality. Even in laboratories and white rooms, gas detection helps keep the environment controlled, avoiding contamination and hazards. They are also used to monitor storage areas, detecting any gas leaks or unfavorable environmental conditions that could affect product quality or worker safety. 

These applications lead to many benefits:

  • increased safety in the workplace
  • Early identification of potential risks
  • compliance with safety regulations
