Why Use Nuclear Medicine Isolators?
The use of isolators and glove boxes for nuclear medicine is fundamental, as they allow all processes to be contained. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies are keen to develop technologies that guarantee product protection and quality while also being concerned about the safety of their operators.
Isolators and glove boxes are used to contain cytotoxic agents during antiviral and biopharmaceutical therapy processes. They are also used for the magistral preparation of medicines. The isolators and glove boxes ensure that sterility assurance levels for pharmaceuticals are maintained, while they are also essential for protecting technicians and operators from hazardous compounds.
Like glove boxes, nuclear isolators reduce operating costs, optimize product quality and eliminate the possibility of effects that are harmful to personnel.
What are their advantages?
Compared to clean rooms, nuclear medicine isolators and glove boxes have the following advantages
A considerably higher level of safety assurance;
- Optimal protection of technicians and operators from potentially hazardous substances; Better protection of products from any form of contamination
- Better protection of products against any form of contamination;
- Better classification (isolators work with class C GMP);
- Improved reliability of risk assessments when processing highly effective substances;
- Reduced costs for clothing, labor and other cleanroom expenses.
Containment solution providers can help the nuclear medicine industry to develop and optimize their key processes. Their solutions are very important to ensure the safety and security of operators, products and the environment.
