Ultra-clean and germ-free processes are becoming increasingly important for industrial production, particularly in the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Surfaces in cleanrooms must be sealed, easy to clean well and to disinfect properly. A new concept using superconductor technology now enables contactless and precise weighing and measuring.
Keeping production in laboratories free of germs and contamination is not easy. Particularly problematic is the equipment used, for example test tubes, Petri dishes as well as measuring devices such as scales. They are brought into the screened working space from outside and can introduce germs. If they are put down on the work surface, tiny gaps are created underneath them and these are very difficult to keep clean.
