Contain, Don’t Feel, Don’t Let Them In!


Whatever industry or environment you are working in, contamination prevention is a top priority in handling materials needing premium protection. Most of the time, you already feel assured that the personal protective equipment you wear can shield you from every harmful organism. But is this a fact or a bluff?

For the continuous protection of the operator, product, and environment, guidelines must be followed in applying the right kind of safety. This is where the concept of biocontainment comes in – which is related to laboratory safety, extending to even manufacturing industries handling specialized products.

Biocontainment involves the provision of a physical containment to prevent the unintentional infection of a personnel. Harmful discharge into the immediate workplace is also lessened during scientific research or manufacturing processes.

Primary containment is the main chamber that has a direct contact with the product. This serves as the protection from hazardous agents of both the personnel and the immediate outside environment. Usage of proper storage containers, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and suitable safety equipment such as isolators are required.

Secondary containment is the safety provision of the external environment from exposure to harmful materials. This is the place wherein the primary containment is placed, and where the personnel operates. This type of containment involves a combination of facility design and operational practices.

At Esco Pharma, our focus is to provide the best product and service delivery, as we take on newer challenges and soar towards greater progress. The problems regarding contamination for pharmaceutical, agricultural, medical, and production operations can be eliminated as we yield protection with containment.

Aseptic Containment Isolator (ACTI) provides a premium handling of biopharmaceutical drug products, aseptic cell processing, and high potency active pharmaceutical ingredients. Safety is assured with the provision of an ISO Class 5 (Grade A) environment.

Truly, the every man’s isolator can fit all the needs of the client.
