ABN Cleanroom Technology builds largest temporary hospital pharmacy in Belgium
From 2026 onwards, every hospital pharmacy in Belgium must comply with the strict PIC/S standard for pharmaceutical preparations. In collaboration with De Meeuw, ABN Cleanroom Technology is currently constructing the largest temporary hospital pharmacy ever delivered in Belgium (Hospix). This mobile pharmacy enables UZ Gent to prepare their cytostatic and sterile preparations of medicines in cleanrooms in accordance with the strict GMP-guidelines from the PIC/s directive. In concrete terms, these updated PIC/s guidelines indicate that from 01 January 2026, stricter requirements will be imposed on the way in which medicines are prepared in hospitals. UZ Gent however is not waiting until that deadline. They prefer to comply with the uniform quality standard as soon as possible since it ensures progress for patient safety. The hospital will put their new pharmacy into operation in 2023.
