The Benefits of Isolator and Aseptic Processing

Isolators have been around the Pharmaceutical Industry since the early 1980s and in the Nuclear Industry (glovebox technology) since the 1950s. The intent of isolators is to create an airtight barrier or enclosure around a piece of equipment or process which provides absolute separation between the operator and product. The operator can perform tasks through half-suits or glove ports. Isolators provide a specific environment inside the isolator using HEPA filters.

In relation to isolators, Gary Partington has written a presentation about utilizing isolators for pharmaceutical processing.
