An open operation RAB, by definition, provides recognition that the barrier doors can be opened for operator intervention(s), at defined risk assessed stages during aseptic production operations, after the last bio-decontamination step.
An enclosed space with two or more doors, which is interposed between two or more rooms, e.g. of differing classes of cleanliness, for the purpose of controlling the airflow between those rooms when they need to be entered.
Air Showers are self-contained chambers installed at entrances to cleanrooms and other controlled environments. They minimize particulate matter entering or exiting the clean space.
An Aseptic Containment Isolator is a type of containment system designed for large volume sterility testing. It has a larger working area to accommodate various batch sizes and process flows.
Ceiling Laminar (Unidirectional) Airflow Unit is a containment equipment module for providing a zoned unidirectional downflow airflow. The purpose of this equipment is to provide laminar airflow to a working area or zone underneath it for protection of processes
Glovebox is the general term used to describe a sealed chamber that allows the operator to handle hazardous materials or agents having an unknown risk level.
Class III Cabinets provide the highest level of personnel, product and environment protection against agents assigned to Biosafety Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. They are frequently used for handling the deadliest biohazards such as bacteria, viruses and microorganisms.
The closed RABS is an intermediate solution between isolators and open RABS. A closed operation RAB provides a higher level of contamination control because the RABs barrier doors remain closed from the point of the last bio-decontamination, through initial set-up through processing. These systems typically use transfer systems that are similar to isolator type transfer systems that are closed and dock with the RABs.
Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator provides a safe and clean environment for compounding of hazardous, sterile drug preparations in compliance with USP 797 and 800 criteria.
An isolator designed to maintain an aseptic environment throughout the compounding and material transfer of pharmaceutical ingredients or preparations. Compounding Aseptic Isolator provides a safe and clean environment for compounding of non-hazardous, sterile drug preparations and IV admixtures in compliance with USP 797 criteria.
Contained Powder Handling equipment is designed for a high level of operator protection by containing hazardous airborne powder.
For a fully contained environment during active product handling, containment solution that provides uncompromised total barrier isolation is in need.
Dispensing booth is a kind of partial purifying equipment for filling, refilling, weighing and sampling of raw material and compounds.
Downflow Booths are primarily used in the pharmaceutical industry to provide a safe working area for operators to protect them from hazardous, sensitizing, or toxic substances during manual handling of powders and solvents.
Dynamic cabinet is a broad term used to describe different types of enclosures for various industry applications.
These are aseptic architectural systems with dynamic airflow that provides an air barrier to prevent contaminants from leaking into aseptic suits.
An apparatus that maintains optimal conditions for the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi as well as eukaryotic cells like CHO cells and insect cells, to make products useful to humans.
General Processing Platform Isolator (GPPI) is used as a barrier to provide biologically free environment for aseptic and potent formulation and other related processes requiring sterile environment and containment solutions.
Reverse Laminar Flow Cabinet protects the operator and the laboratory environment from particles, aerosols, powders and allergens. The large volume of inward airflow provides equivalent protection with superior access into the work zone compared to typical Biological safety Cabinets, fume hoods or related containment devices.
Dispensing & Sampling Booths are designed to give mixed air flow stream for product, operator and environmental protection and used to control the hazardous emissions of dust powder during powder dispensing/sampling process
Sampling isolators can provide high level of operator protection against hazardous and sensitizing materials during product sampling process.
Single-use Bioreactor, also known as Disposable Bioreactors is a bioreactor with a disposable vessel made of plastic instead of a conventional or traditional culture vessel made from stainless steel or glass.
These are drum booths intended to provide low ppm containment during the transfer and handling of liquids, such as drum to drum transfer or drum to process reaction vessel.
Static Box is used for transfer of material from one place to another in isolation by means of mechanical/electromagnetic door interlocking process that assures opening of only one door at a time.
Sterility testing of pharmaceutical products is required to determine the acceptability of a production lot.
Weighing and Dispensing Isolators are advanced containment systems providing controlled negative pressure environments to maximize personnel protection.
