LAS VEGAS – December 2, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Germfree, a Florida based company, is introducing its new line of aseptic PEC (primary engineering control) equipment at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas. The newly redesigned equipment includes Laminar Flow Hoods, Biological Safety Cabinets, and Cleanroom Pass-Through Boxes. These new products build on Germfree’s 60 years of aseptic PEC expertise in both the hospital compounding and pharmaceutical industries. The equipment has been designed to meet and exceed the strict cGMP and USP / regulatory requirements found in these industries.
“The USP and standards have changed the working environment for many in the compounding industry,” said Ryan Henry, Marketing and Product Segment Manager at Germfree. “We listened to our customers and responded with new designs that are ideally suited for cleanroom use, enhancing the cleanability, durability, and ergonomics that they have come to expect from our products.”
All of the new products are constructed from stainless steel, both in the work areas and on the exterior of the units. The new biosafety cabinet line features an automatic, adjustable, tempered glass sliding sash and touch screen controls that come pre-loaded with instructional videos on proper usage and care for the equipment. The laminar flow line includes touch controls and low glare LED lights integrated into the work area. Both units have a night mode setting that allows the hood to remain running during periods of non-use while reducing energy consumption.
The cleanroom pass-through boxes utilize mechanical interlocks to only allow one door to be open at a time. The active HEPA purge cycle is triggered by closing either door while the interlocks remain locked until the cycle is complete. These units have been designed with an upward door swing that reduces the equipment footprint and allows for universal installation.
“Providing aseptic environments to the hospital compounding and pharmaceutical industries has been incredibly important to Germfree going back to our founding in 1962,” said Kevin Kyle, CEO of Germfree. “We are proud to be able to continue to serve these vital industries and innovate products that prevent sterile product contamination and protect patient safety.”
About Germfree: Germfree Laboratories LLC creates environments that serve life science innovation and advance global health. The company, founded in 1962, designs, engineers and manufactures equipment and facilities to serve the compounding pharmacy, biopharmaceutical and biocontainment industries throughout the world.

Credit Union 1’s Dec.31 merger with Emory Alliance Credit Union expands its presence to the booming Atlanta market and grows their existing partnerships with prestigious universities across the country, such as Emory University and the Emory Healthcare Network, via the merger.
CHICAGO – December 2, 2022 – (Newswire.com)
Credit Union 1 (CU1)—the Official Banking Partner of Notre Dame Athletics, with a national online presence and physical branches across Illinois, Indiana, and Nevada—recently announced both the year-end merger with Emory Alliance Credit Union (EACU) of Atlanta, GA, as well as first quarter 2023 acquisition of NorthSide Community Bank in northern Chicagoland, increasing asset size to $1.8 billion and an estimated 109,000 members by first quarter 2023.
Credit Union 1’s merger with EACU, which marks the credit union’s entry into the southeast United States, will have Emory Alliance Credit Union keep its name and operate as a Division of Credit Union 1 to maximize the partnership with Emory University and Emory Health Care Network, the second largest employer in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. The acquisition of NorthSide Community Bank—with branches in Gurnee, Mundelein, Niles, and Riverwoods—continues to build out CU1’s presence in Illinois.
“As Credit Union 1 turns 65, we are looking toward the future with a focus on thoughtful expansion, building a nationwide presence for our members while also retaining the local community feel and high level of service that our long-time members have come to expect from CU1,” says Todd Gunderson, President and CEO of Credit Union 1. “As we grow, we have prioritized partnering with organizations that share our vision and values, so that each merger is a true benefit to our new and existing members.”
Credit Union 1’s top priority is the member experience, providing new members with an expanded array of products, highly competitive rates, a larger national footprint, and investment in local communities. In 2023, CU1 will donate more than $500,000 to benefit community members through partnerships with the Golic Family Foundation, University of Illinois Chicago, Western Illinois University, and more. CU1 also offers its members a modern, everyday banking experience thanks to its continued investment in technology, providing features like a highly rated mobile app, an easy-to-use digital banking platform, conveniences like CU1 Card Keeper, the opportunity for member service via LiveChat, and much more.
