pharma & biotech
Working in the research, development and production of medicines in pharmaceutical and biotech companies calls for the highest standards in reliable protective equipment — after all, employees are exposed to chemical and biological risks as well as all kinds of physical and mental stresses during their work. For these reasons, uvex has developed optimal PPE solutions that are specially designed for use in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Our products not only provide the best possible protection against workplace hazards, but also against long-term health risks. In this way, our products improve the well-being of your employees. Our exclusive portfolio for different areas of application in the pharmaceutical & biotech industry has the right PPE products for you:
Safety spectacles — focus on innovation and quality
Work in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries is all too often accompanied by a number of mechanical, chemical and optical risks to eye health. Our diverse uvex eyewear range offers different designs, tints and coatings that are specially developed for use in laboratories, research and production environments.
Autoclavable safety spectacles with anti-fog coating. Specially designed for repeated autoclave sterilisation (20 x 20 minutes at maximum 121°C).
Safety spectacles with ideal tint for laboratories and workstations with LED lighting. The special uvex CBR65 lens tint reduces blue light and increases the contrast for fatigue-free and relaxed vision.
Clear vision all day long: The uvex supravision plus and uvex supravision excellence anti-fog coatings keep the uvex safety spectacles from fogging, providing the optimal solution for working safely and with unrestricted vision. Please don't hesitate to contact us, if you require more information on further models with these coatings.
