Picarro Introduces a Hydrogen Peroxide Gas Concentration Analyzer for GMP Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Applications

The Picarro PI2114 gas concentration analyzer continuously measures H2O2 levels as low as 3.3 ppb to help avoid drug oxidation and safeguard drug stability

Santa Clara, CA — September 7, 2017 — Picarro Inc., a leading provider of gas concentration and isotope analyzers and systems for industrial and science applications, announces the introduction of the Picarro PI2114 hydrogen peroxide gas concentration analyzer for GMP pharmaceutical manufacturing. The PI2114 analyzer provides continuous, real-time measurement of hydrogen peroxide levels as low as 3.3 parts-per-billion (ppb) to help avoid oxidation and safeguard drug stability in high-potency API and biologics manufacturing and in aseptic fill and finish. In addition to being optimized for GMP applications, it combines best-in-class performance, and cost-saving features for fast, easy installation and operation with minimal operating costs. 

"Major pharmaceutical, CMO, and isolator companies have used Picarro hydrogen peroxide analyzers for a decade to ensure ultra-low levels of residual hydrogen peroxide after sterilization and decontamination of isolated manufacturing environments," said Jan Willem Poelmann, Picarro senior vice president of sales and marketing. "The PI2114 analyzer incorporates capabilities that will enable new customers to quickly and easily achieve installation and operation compliant with GMP manufacturing standards."
