Isolators

Isolators are designed to the challenges and market requirements for low OEL containment systems in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical devices and Radiopharmaceutical.  This technology is providing a safe working environment addressing both ergonomic and safety concerns for operators in research, manufacturing, testing and handling hazardous materials.  From aseptic applications, an environment capable of delivering a confident Class 100 (ISO 5) or better working environment.  This equipment can be portable or stationary or grouped to other isolators to form a “production system” or complete containment solution.  Isolators are designed to be tested and certified by their respective industry standards.  Our experienced staff has over 50 years of containment experience.  They serve on many professional societies’ boards and standards committees to keep in pace with new technology and industry requirements.

Aseptic Isolators

  • This isolation technology is used for applications for sterility testing, fill lines and other advanced aseptic applications including aseptic containment systems.
  • Isolators are manufactured with minimal cracks and crevices to prevent distribution of the hydrogen peroxide gas decontamination.
  • Equipment is designed to allow only the wetted surfaces inside the isolator. Greyside equipment is placed outside this area.
  • The Allen-Bradley PLC system is used to control the validated startup of the equipment and interface to the VHP unit.
  • Class 100 airflow (ISO 5) for better hydrogen peroxide distribution and quicker aeration.
  • A Rotary carousel can be installed for ergonomics. This allows the use of foot pedals to rotate the shelving to the operator and reduces back strain.
  • The PLC is integrated to the VHP unit for safety.  If a failure occurs with the VHP unit, the PLC can go to a safe mode.  The portable VHP unit can also be integrated to the isolator PLC.
  • Airlocks for aseptic transfers of production equipment items, sterility testing supplies or samples
