Our Aseptic Containment Systems begin with the Laminar Flow Unit which provides an ISO 5 environment to the critical area. The LFUS are upgraded to an open RABS with the addition of one or more sets of gloves, allowing the operator access to the equipment interior while limiting the direct access through an open access door.
Our closed RABS and Isolators are used for more demanding separation of the interior space from the surrounding area. Typically these systems are designed for production of sterile products, whether toxic, potent, or non-toxic. Both our closed RABS and Isolators maintain uncompromising, continuous isolation of the interior from the external environment. An ISO 5 environment is achieved by HEPA filtered, unidirectional air that vertically flows over the process area. An exhaust fan maintains the pressure difference between the interior and the exterior environments.
Our Laminar Flow Units, RABS and Isolators for aseptic processing are typically designed for the production of toxic or potent compounds. These systems provide protection for the operator from the product and/or the product from the operator and the surrounding space, preventing contamination by keeping the production process enclosed in a confined area. The enclosed space provides HEPA filtered, unidirectional air flows vertically over the interior area.
