SKAN Service Technician within 15-minutes-

NEW YORK, NY; April 24, 2016 - International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), the premier event dedicated to pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovation, technology and knowledge from development through commercialization sponsored by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), and SKAN, the world leader in isolators, barriers and hydrogen peroxide decontamination technologies, will introduce the SKAN US Emergency 24/7 Hotline at INTERPHEX 2016.

“This new program offers SKAN Preventive Maintenance customers the opportunity to call the exclusive Emergency 24/7 Hotline for isolator support on holidays and weekends,” said Larry Cabeceiras, SKAN US President. “Customers can expect to receive a call back from a live SKAN US Service Technician in less than 15 minutes! Our trained SKAN service technicians are often able to handle alarm and control situations right over the phone. If a SKAN service technician must be dispatched to a customer site to resolve the emergency situation, we are committed to arriving at the customer site within 48 hours of the call.”

Back by popular demand, SKAN is also providing engineers and key decision makers attending INTERPHEX 2016 a chance to participate in the second annual “SKAN Engineering Olympics”. The SKAN Engineering Olympics were developed to showcase the dexterity and flexibility of the barrier isolation glove box of the full-scale Pharmaceutical Safety Isolator L-Flange System (PSI-L. Prizes will be awarded for participation and winners in each category (eligibility rules apply).

Cabeceiras continued, “We had to bring back the SKAN Engineering Olympics. Everyone had such a great time last year and, of course, we had to bring in a new style of fedora, SKANMAN, for 2016. SKAN will also feature a wireless glove leak tester (WGT) and RABS demonstration units and extensive information on the SKANFOG® material airlock. Come see SKAN at INTERPHEX, Booth 3140.”

Stop by INTERPHEX LIVE for the session entitled, "Aseptic Facility Challenges/Sterility by Design",  featuring Patrick Poisson of United Therapeutics, Sterling Kline of IPS-Integrated Project Services and Les Edwards of SKAN US at Crystal Palace CP-2, 3:00-3:45PM, Tuesday April 26th.
