“Integration is the act of bringing together smaller components into a single system that functions as one.”
In order to provide you with the most efficient, effective and ergonomic solutions, at Tecniplast we consider all the aspects of product performance and we make sure they smoothly integrate with one another. Tecniplast's complete product range is designed to work together in a complementary way where everything is engineered as systems and not stand alone items.
A close partnership with you will allow you to develop a clear understanding of how you want your animal unit to function and offer a tailored Turn-Key solution ensuring:
Operator safety from allergen exposure and ergonomics
Planned workflows and balanced workload
High health-status and integrity of barriers
Appropriate back-up and recovery plans
Expected ratio between manual and automated handling
Affordable return on investment and breakeven analysis
Selecting Tecniplast to provide the integration throughout the building you are appointing the expertise needed to make the difference: from animal room (IVC caging, Laminar flow cabinets) to the Cage Wash Area (Washers, Robotics, Bedding handling, Decon Chambers), passing by the various logistic flows (Trolleys, Crates, Presentation racks, Accessories) in between.
Here are a few ways you can benefit from an integrated equipment package:
Ensuring compatibility of material and process (e.g. plastics and washing cycles/autoclaving and automation handling). Awareness of interdependencies reduces risk and results in improved performance
The cost and complexity of dealing with multiple suppliers can be high and communication can be complex. By establishing a single supplier process, risks and conflict can be avoided
The shorter the information chain, the more effective and efficient it becomes. Consequently, planning, communication and service will improve, becoming more efficient, with “grey areas” disappearing and any issues which do arise can be handled more effectively
Tecniplast can provide solutions that link equipment and activities across all areas which results in improved workflows, logistics and environment. Reduced risk of conflicting specifications and ensuring staff are motivated
Integration suppliers maintain a clear line of responsibility and liability
Better co-ordination of installation teams, equipment and services protects programmes and reduces cost
Offers long term preventative maintenance and service benefits (e.g. single source and contact point)
Tecniplast strongly believes that product integration and a sincere partnership with our clients are the key parts to providing effective solutions to laboratory animal facilities.
