ProSys Sampling agrees US contract

Boston: Trade Minister Billy Kelleher announced yesterday that Cork company ProSys Sampling Systems had agreed a $1,000,000 (€734,000) contract with one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies on a project to design and manufacture high containment isolators for their United States headquarters.

The announcement was made during the Boston leg of Enterprise Ireland’s trade visit to the US east coast this week.

High containment isolators aid in the handling of highly active or toxic chemicals, ensuring the non- contamination of elements throughout the product research and development lifecycle, while enabling manual and automatic handling procedures to be carried out with minimal operator exposure.
