Cleanzone 2018: Safety, security and modern medicine in the spotlight – Offshoot makes its debut in Dubai

Feb 23, 2018

The requirements for purity in production processes continue to grow stricter, regardless of whether it is in the field of medical technology, the food industry, microtechnology or the automotive industry.

At the international and interdisciplinary trade fair Cleanzone on 23 and 24 October 2018 in Frankfurt am Main, the industry will be presenting their innovations for these new challenges while helping trade visitors navigate the jungle of standards, guidelines and concepts.

The trade fair will be addressing safety and security in cleanrooms, with a particular focus on such things as digital access controls and counterfeit protection. Thanks to biotechnology and genetic engineering, the use of targeted therapies and custom diagnostics is becoming ever more common. The demands placed on cleanrooms by modern and personalised medicine and medical technology products are another top theme at the trade fair. In addition, aspects such as the simulation of cleanroom processes and the use of the BIM method to plan production facilities will be discussed at Cleanzone 2018. By visualising airflows before construction has started, it is possible to identify sources of contamination in advance and take appropriate steps. Throughout all the themes, events and exhibitor presentations, two key drivers of innovation are evident: digitisation and energy-efficiency.

The members of the Cleanzone strategy commission met in January, and they were in agreement that the market for cleanroom technology looks very promising. The positive mood in the industry is also benefiting Cleanzone, and numerous national and international market leaders have already signed up for the trade fair, including basan/VWR, Briem Steuerungstechnik, BSR, Colandis, Contec, CRTM, the German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI), Hydroflex, IAB, Kelvin Reinraumsysteme, KEK, MEC Industries, Micronclean, MK Versuchsanlagen,, profi-con, pure11, Siemens, Spetec, TSI and vali.sys. This year marks the first time that the prestigious Hermann-Rietschel-Institut in Berlin is taking part. The institute researches themes of importance to the field of building and energy technology, and places a particular focus on cleanroom technology.
In addition to the exhibitors’ presentations, Cleanzone also boasts numerous events. Trade visitors can obtain concrete proposals for their requirements here. The Cleanzone Conference, Cleanzone Plaza event stage, Expert Sessions, Cleanroom Talks, research area and ReinraumAkademie’s CleanroomAward help promote knowledge transfer and foster an exchange between experts and business partners.

On 12 and 13 November 2018, Cleanzone Middle East will be making its debut in Dubai. As a result of stricter product quality standards, cleanroom technology is playing an ever more important role in the Gulf states. Middle East Cleaning Technology Week will be taking place at almost the same time – from 13 to 15 November 2018 – and focusing on textile care, building cleaning and car washes. These events offer outstanding synergies in the areas of textile care, hygiene and cleaning in particular.
