The pharmaceutical industry has always embraced robots and automation, and continues to do so. 

Adoption over the coming decade will increase and there are five main reasons for this:

  1. robots reducing human error. One of the biggest risks in the pharmaceutical industry is human error, the result of which can not only harm the end-users, but also those working in the industry. Robots have high accuracy levels, especially when it comes to dispensing in pharmacies and laboratories, when dose and stock control are crucially important;

  2. robots taking the strain. Robots can take on many jobs that human workers can find demoralising and even dangerous. This frees up human workers to take on more challenging roles and help improve overall levels of productivity; 

  3. robots doing the dirty work. The pharmaceuticals industry is a dangerous environment, full of potential harm to human workers. Yet robots can work continuously in such places - they are not damaged by sterilising and cleaning materials for example;

  4. robots cleaning up. Human workers can contaminate a cleanroom. Robots developed for the pharmaceutical industry meet cleanroom standards, such as ISO Class 5 and 6, and can dramatically reduce contamination and are far more effective in these environments;

  5. robots filing in. Increasingly, non-skilled and skilled labour is in short supply, made worse by Brexit and Covid-19, and robots are ready to fill the gaps, right now.  

Take a look at what robots and automation has to offer you right now. This is not a question of tomorrow, but today, this very minute. 

Robots and automation will revolutionize your business by removing the dull work and letting you and your team to focus on the business itself.  

The pharmaceutical industry is changing and changing fast, don’t get left behind.
