Containment systems for sterile applications may be proposed in the form of closed isolators or Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS).
A sterile isolator allows to avoid the use of sterile cleanrooms, reducing the sterile volume around the process being executed.
Turbulent or unidirectional flow may be adopted for airflow.
Typical applications are:
- sterility testing
- aseptic filling lines
- vessel charging
- sterile jet milling
- dryers discharge of sterile products
Integrated decontamination system (VHP generator) is generally adopted.
