The repetitive nature of routine laboratory tasks poses a risk for Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), especially for scientists and technicians in the pharmaceutical industry. RSI is closely related to device design – poor designs can be difficult to use and clean, resulting in contact stress, excessive force and poor operator posture. RSI also affects workflow reproducibility due to poor engineering, errors, and cross-contamination. Contamination is a particular threat when laboratory filtration equipment such as manifolds, filter funnels, and pumps are difficult to clean properly.
