R&D Laboratory Containment Isolator Made Its Way to Big Pharma

Mar 01, 2018

Esco Pharma USA factory successfully completed the design, ergonomic trials, manufacture, assembly, testing, and delivery of a 14-glove double-sided R&D Laboratory Containment Isolator for one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturing companies in the world. This system is designed to achieve a containment level of 12.5 ng/m3 over an 8-hour TWA when handing potent chemical entities.

The R&D Laboratory Containment Isolator is regarded as a challenging project with large quantity of process equipment housed and integrated within the isolator for R&D applications. These pieces of process equipment were positioned to be ergonomically accessible including approximately sixty-five (65) through-wall process utility connections fit for the specified purpose and activities. In addition, successful delivery in a clean and cGMP manner made it even more challenging. With the space constraints getting into the facility and final positioning placement, the unit must be brought it in as few pieces as possible without compromising the integrity of the system as a whole.

The system has a built-in automated pressure hold test feature allowing a quick and straightforward verification each time the equipment is started. It is equipped with FDA-approved and USP Class VI compliant inflatable seals and is controlled via an Allen Bradley PLC/HMI.
