Transporting hazardous materials throughout the hospital requires special attention to protect personnel, systems and patients from contamination and exposure. Based on a hospital’s protocol, this task may be automated by using a pneumatic tube system. Swisslog pneumatic tube systems, along with secondary containers and leak-resistant carriers, are qualified to safely deliver hazardous materials including bio-hazardous waste, nuclear medicines, patient specimens, cytostatics and cytotoxic drugs.

The primary concern with hazardous material transport is possible leakage into the carrier or even the system tubing. Our leak-resistant carriers and special inserts virtually eliminate the risk of leakage caused by breakage. Additionally, special enter and exit technology that promotes soft delivery of carriers adds another level of protection from contamination, exposure and breakage.
Pneumatic Tube Systems
Delivering prompt, customized care is critical to improving the patient experience and ultimately enabling better patient outcomes. Swisslog’s family of pneumatic tube systems helps hospitals meet patient needs by efficiently transporting drugs, documents and specimens to and from nurses’ stations, labs, inpatient and outpatient pharmacies, blood banks and the ED.
Whisper Receiving System
By installing the optional Whisper Receiving System on the TransLogic® Pneumatic Tube Station, hospitals can significantly reduce noise, creating a better hospital experience for patients and a less stressful environment for staff.
Carriers for the TransLogic® PTS
TransLogic carriers safely and reliably transport lab specimens, IVs, pharmaceuticals, documents, supplies and other materials throughout the hospital’s pneumatic tube system. Solid and durable, these pneumatic tube system carriers protect contents as they travel and are easy to load and unload.
