Inflatable Sealed Isoclean® Healthcare Platform Isolator (HPI-G3-IS): Your Cost-effective Solution to Automated Isolators

Esco Pharma introduces the newest member to its isolation technologies, the Isoclean® Healthcare Platform Isolator - Inflatable Seal Model (HPI-G3-IS). Isoclean® HPI is offered as an optimized solution for aseptic and potent compounding, sterility testing, aseptic filtration, cell and gene therapy, cosmeceuticals, and biocontainment, among others.

HPI-G3-IS facilitates the isolation of a product/process while providing the required sterile environment. It is factory-configured to operate at either positive or negative pressure in a recirculating or total exhaust airflow scheme.

Isoclean® HPI is designed in accordance with the international Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) standards. It is equipped with supply HEPA (H14) filters providing ISO Class 5 environment suitable for aseptic processes. The earlier model of HPI-G3 is designed with FDA-approved static seals, while HPI-G3-IS is designed with inflatable seals and automated dampers.

The standard unit of HPI-G3-IS comes with auto pressure hold testing (APHT) and Esco HMI touchscreen. It also allows the integration of Esco mobile Biovap™ Biodecontamination System, which facilitates master biodecontamination that can only be performed with internal doors open. The mobile BioVap™ unit comes with a H2O2 sensor and a catalytic converter.

The pass-through chambers have interlocking doors, adjustable purge duration, and time-delayed ingress/egress control to allow sufficient time for surface decontamination, and to minimize cross-contamination. It also comes with an automated sliding door feature for closing and opening of the inner pass-through chamber door. This improved design facilitates ease of isolation control especially during pressure decay testing and bio-decontamination processes.

Key Benefits include:

  • Automated pressure hold testing (APHT) capability.
  • ULPA filters (as per IEST-RP-CC001.3) and HEPA (H14) filter (as per EN 1822) with a typical efficiency of > 99.999% at 0.1 to 0.3 microns; provide superior ISO Class 5 air cleanliness as per ISO 14644-1.
  • Class 2 containment enclosure classification via auto pressure leak test (factory acceptance test) and Class 3 via automated pressure test as per ISO 10648-2 (prior to daily tasks).
  • Improved isolation control during pressure decay testing and bio-decontamination process due to inflatable seals and automated dampers.
  • Real-time display of cabinet operations and cabinet performance monitoring.
  • Electromagnetic interlocking doors with time delay effect ensures safety and containment during material transfer
  • Foot switch activated auto sliding doors with light barrier

Isoclean® HPI is capable of pressure testing both in the factory and on-site to meet the ISO 10648-2 standards. The system can give real-time pressure readings during operation for monitoring purposes. The integrity of the gloves can be measured quantitatively, applying the pressure decay method with a glove leak tester.

The isolator is available as a standard or as a customized unit to integrate various equipment for the provision of a complete and simplified workflow processing.

Optional Items:

  • Integration of Esco mobile BioVap™ biodecontamination system (H2O2 biodecontamination with sensor and catalytic converter)
  • Integration of a side-mounted 24 L CO2 Incubator
  • Glove Leak Tester
    • 300 mm x 300 mm
    • 300 mm x 200 mm
  • CCTV Integration
  • Height adjustable stand
  • Access to rear view monitoring system
  • National Environment Balancing Bureau (NEBB) Cleanroom Performance Testing (CPT) for validation
  • Optional PQ support
  • With option for three-way pass through chamber in between 2 units of 2-glove, 3-glove, or 4-glove isolator combination
  • Other configurations available:
    • 2-glove + 2-glove + 2-glove unit
    • 4-glove + 2-glove unit
