Equashield is a developer of Closed System Transfer Devices (CSTDs) for the safe handling of hazardous drugs to protect healthcare workers. Equashield's mechanically closed CSTD design relies on its unique pressure equalization behind the syringe and with its use of tight seal double membranes to keep connectors residual free despite multiple entries. Equashield Pro is built around the Equashield CSTD and relies on its innovative design to redefine the automation workflow and optimize throughput.
Unlike traditional robot’s reliance on robotic arms that mimic human motion with the use of needle and syringe leading to the potential for cytotoxic drips, spills, aerosols and vapour release, Equashield® Pro uses multi-station compounding approach to minimize both the motion and time it takes to prepare a dose much like a factory manufacturing line.
Equashield Pro is also capable of processing a broad variety of finished product dosage forms and access all size drug vials to be a truly versatile machine. Equashield Pro is designed to make adoption of robotics in the IV room simple and affordable regardless of hospital size. It is easy to fit into hospital pharmacies and comparable in size to a standard Biological Safety Cabinet.
