Getinge’s cGMP washer redefines cleanroom efficiency with compact design and sustainable performance

Today, Getinge unveils the GEW 888 neo, a cGMP washer designed to develop cleanroom efficiency. Built to meet the strictest demands of the biopharmaceutical industry, the GEW 888 neo offers customers the ability to maximize their cleanroom space.

Cleanroom space is a valuable commodity in any biopharmaceutical company, and the design of the GEW 888 neo addresses this challenge. By combining a smaller footprint with exceptional washing capacity, it empowers biopharmaceutical companies to optimize their installation and make the most of their cleanroom facilities.

“One of the features of the GEW 888 neo is its ability to deliver sustainable performance while ensuring high-quality cleaning results. With reduced water and utility consumption, the washer not only contributes to a better environment but also offers a reduction in operating costs. Its robust construction and use of high-quality components guarantee a long lifetime of use, minimizing downtime and providing a low total cost of ownership,” says Robert Hohner, Product Line Manager Life Science washers at Getinge.

The GEW 888 neo embraces user-centric design since the positioning of the intuitive touchscreen control interface and the addition of the loading rack identification & AutoStart system enhance operator handling, ensuring safe and efficient operation within the cleanroom environment. The interface supports present industry demands and allows for seamless adaptation to evolving requirements. Its vertical space saving sliding door enables an ergonomic loading/unloading of the loading rack. The loading rack identification & AutoStart system guarantees that the correct validated program is preselected, or automatically started when the loading has been finalized. The identification will be logged on the batch report and audit trail to secure traceability.

“In addition to its compact size and sustainable performance, the GEW 888 neo enables high throughput and reliability in cleaning operations. Its washing capacity guarantees efficient processing of production equipment, components, and glassware. The state-of-art patented single pass rinse ensures optimal performance with very low consumption of Water for Injection (WFI). With the new innovative technical solution, we can perform multiple rinses at the final or pre-rinse phase. The flexibility implemented is very valued by our customers,” explains Robert.

Downtime poses a significant challenge for production lines as the GEW 888 neo introduces an I-O link system, which is a communication protocol for sensors and actuators connected via fieldbus connections.

“This enables communication in event of errors and contribute with less wiring. In addition, the system can be easily adapted if further future functionality would be requested. Overall, the I-O link system will ensure higher uptime of the washer with a higher level of monitoring,” says Robert.

He continues:

“Our GEW 888 neo represents advancement in cleanroom washer technology. Its compact design, sustainable performance, and excellent washing capacity empower our customers to optimize their cleanroom operations and achieve unparalleled efficiency.”

The launch of the GEW 888 neo underscores Getinge's commitment to driving progress and innovation in the life science industry, delivering solutions that address customer needs.
