Testing for High Containment Gloveboxes


High containment gloveboxes (HCG) have been used in the pharmaceutical industry for containment of potent compounds, along with providing specific environmental conditions, for years. These types of glovebox design fit well into the Class III Bio Safety Cabinet classifications but provide even better environmental attributes than the standard BSC designs.

Once you have decided on the best system and design, testing needs to completed. Testing methods are standard and can be applied to the HCGs. Testing of the HCGs would conform to the industry standard.

In relation to this, Controlled Environments has an article on this subject by Michelle Frisch. The article can be accessed here.
