ENSURED SAFETY FOR DEVICES USED IN HIGH-RISK FACILITIES
Easy-To-Clean Tablets for Healthcare and Hazardous Industries
THE INDUSTRY & COMPANY
Tablets for healthcare and pharma that are safe for lab environments
Pharmaceutical companies typically use tablets and other technical equipment in their clean rooms, which are special controlled environments designed to minimize contaminants like dust, microbes, and particles. These are crucial for the production, testing, and packaging of drugs and medical devices, as well as for various research and development activities. Since tablets are key tools in these labs, used for inventory control, research, quality control, etc. it is imperative that they are properly certified and meet the specific national standards for these environments.
THE CHALLENGE & PAIN POINTS
Key safety markings are removed when devices are cleaned
Since the devices used in these facilities are often wiped down with Isopropyl Alcohol (70% IPA), this pharma company needed a way to avoid having the ANSI logo on their tablets from peeling or wiping off. From a safety perspective, it was imperative that this marking stay clearly visible even after multiple uses or cleans since it distinguishes the standard devices from those that can be operated in flammable or hazardous environments. In certain labs where there could potentially be combustible dust and powders in the air, having the proper device is critical.
THE TAILORED SOLUTION
Custom placement of ANSI certification logo on Getac rugged tablet
With medical and healthcare professionals in mind, Getac’s UX10-IP model already features sealed buttons to allow frequent cleaning, preventing infection and cross-contamination. It also meets the safety standards set by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) so it can be used in potentially hazardous environments such as labs. Given the issue with the ANSI logo peeling off, Getac provided the option to customize the existing mylar of the device, which is used to cover screw holes on the back of the UX10-IP. By having the logo printed at the bottom side of the mylar instead, they could easily preserve the main functionalities of the device while maintaining the ANSI marking and eliminating any possible confusion for workers.
THE RESULTS & BENEFITS
Clearer safety markings for longer device lifespan and worker protection
This change made it much easier to maintain the device and keep it meticulously clean after shifts at the pharmaceutical lab. Easier maintenance means a longer product life cycle and lower total cost. It was also a preventative safety measure that lessened confusion between standard and ANSI-certified devices, which is essential for industries dealing with dangerous environments. Tablets designed with this in mind protect workers from any technical issues and the device from damage. The flexibility and technical knowledge of Getac’s internal team led to the approval of the unit for this use case, a simple customization instead of a complicated, drawn-out device replacement.
