New cold storage facilities

In October 2017 we started the second part of our facilities revamping: after the installation of a new room temperature warehouse with a 5000 pallets capacity, we are now building new cold storage space for life science products, in order to offer additional services.

Starting from July 2018 the following cold storage facilities will be available:

  • a 400 m2 Freezing Room at -20°C with a storage capacity of 300 pallets
  • a 800 m2 Cool room at +5°C with a storage capacity of 700 pallets

Should you need any further detail or information, feel free to contact us.

New equipment: industrial oven and drums mixer

Starting from the month of January 2017 we installed in our warehouse two industrial ovens with a capacity of 16 x 200 l drums or 4 x 1000 l IBCs designed for the heating of products which are in a crystalline state at ambient temperature or which have such a high viscosity that they can not otherwise be easily managed.
Heating of the materials up to 100°C is achieved by convection through the use of fans for continuous recirculation of the air inside the oven, or by natural convection without fans.
Moreover, a drums mixer has been installed with the purpose to blend and homogenise various bulk materials such pharmaceutical and chemical products in drums up to 200 l / 450 kg.


Starting from March 2017 we installed in our facility a laboratory glassware washer with drying system.
This machine allows a washing up to 95°C and antibacterial thermal disinfection, it is provided of a microprocessor and a programmable electronic control. The final rinsing is performed with demineralized water and the drying phase can be programmed based on the needs and on type of the materials to be washed.
Through a serial port RS232 the machine can be connected to a printer or a PC and the registration of each cycle can be downloaded.
The efficacy of the disinfection cycle can be evaluated through the evaluation of the temperature graph and the calculation of the A0 parameter for thermal disinfection according to EN ISO 15883-1.
This machine is indicated for washing non-sterile sampling tools and containers such as glass or plastic bottles intended for dispensing of API in our cleanroom.
