mated direct costs savings of GBP180,000 per year just from reducing waste with partially used vials. Before CytoCare(TM), RSI [work-related upper limb disorder] affected most of our IV staff. At any given time we had at least one person resting and unable to undertake this type of work, significantly limiting the throughput of the aseptic unit. Technicians love working with CytoCare(TM), it improves their role and they feel better."

Staff shortages and pressure from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospital Organizations (JCAHO) drove Capital Region Pharmacy to validate CytoCare(TM). Senior Scientist Dr. Vagn Handlos said: "We have been through all of the GMP procedures needed to take CytoCare(TM) into action. Regarding microbiological integrity, I have never seen anything better. We conducted tests using settle plates and swabbing the surfaces with growth media; there was no growth of microorganisms in any of the samples. On handling of particulate contamination, the robot gets an excellent score. There is no problem complying with class-A conditions and there is no leakage from the filters. Cross-contamination has also been tested using cyclophosphamide. We were unable to detect cyclophosphamide above a detection limit of one picogram*/ml after having handled multiple cyclophosphamide doses in concentrations of 1g/50ml."

Dr. Alicia Tavella, Oncology Pharmacist at the General Hospital of Bolzano stated: "the results of the validation tests for CytoCare(TM) have all met the required GMP standards. The system efficiently removes particulate and microbiological contamination.

* A picogram [pg] is a metric unit of mass equivalent to one trillionth (10-12) of 1 gram, or one millionth (10-6) of 1 microgram. Prior to CytoCare(TM) it was becoming increasingly difficult to recruit staff to undertake this work, often because of concerns about exposure to carcinogenic agents and the ever-present risk
