Pharmaceutical Industry Isolator
A pharmaceutical industry isolator is cheaper and more efficient equipment than cleanrooms for the pharmaceutical industry, especially in aseptic applications. It creates a controlled atmosphere during the production process by scrupulously respecting the different standards required. It can ensure the protection of the product, the operators and the environment at the same time.
Pharmaceutical Isolator and its Usefulness
The pharmaceutical isolator is a bacteriologically sealed enclosure used in the medical and pharmaceutical environment for toxic processes and aseptic filling process. It is made of a perfectly sterile main isolator where the products are handled, stored or packaged using shoulder-high gloves placed on one of the walls. It also includes transfer systems that allow the entry and exit of the products and the elimination of waste without breaking aseptic conditions.
In general, the isolator is decontaminated by a sterilizing gas: hydrogen peroxide or H202. It uses very high efficiency filters for maximum product protection. These systems aim to eliminate microbes and particles from all possible sources of contamination such as the external environment and operators. The isolator can be equipped with many optional accessories such as hooks on docking bars, welders, cooling trays, cleaning accessories…
There are many applications of an isolator for the pharmaceutical industry, mainly for production and control purposes. For example, it is useful when handling, transferring or packaging solid, semi-solid or powder pharmaceuticals, or handling and filling solutions and infusions. It is also used for sterility testing, defiltration, drying and weighing of cytotoxic principles, aseptic handling of tissues or biological production systems or pathogenic samples, etc. It can be used for the production and control of drugs and pharmaceutical products.
Pharmaceutical Isolator Benefits
A pharmaceutical isolator is a modern medical technology that has several advantages for the pharmaceutical industry. It offers a superior sterile environment compared to conventional environments such as sterile clean rooms. Positive or negative pressures inside the chamber prevent contamination of the operator or the external environment in case of abnormalities. It ensures long-lasting sterility in accordance with pharmaceutical regulations. It is particularly effective during aseptic processes, procedure validations, sterility tests, etc.
The various controls and monitoring are facilitated due to the integrated options and software. Setting and recording of temperatures, pressures, humidity levels, etc. are possible, as are leakage and sterility controls. The data collected will be useful during inspections by the regulatory authorities.
An isolator for the pharmaceutical industry reduces costs. The equipment takes up less space, reduces possible refurbishment costs. They are cheaper to maintain and service, and that means lower operating costs.
