glovebox configuration
General Purpose
  • General purpose isolators provide product protection from environmental contaminants
  • Humidity control available through either process gas purge (usually nitrogen) or desiccant (refer to “Internal Gas Control” selection options)
  • Available in many materials, from low-cost plastics or 316 stainless steel
HEPA Filtration
  • 99.99% efficient High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) or 99.999% efficient Ultra-Low Penetration Air (ULPA) filters remove submicron contaminants from the chamber environment
  • These systems use a recirculation, turbulent airflow design; see “Pharmacy Compounding” selection below for single-pass models that meet USP 797 requirements
Pharmacy Compounding
  • Comply with USP 797 standards for Compounding Aseptic Isolators (CAIs) and Compounding Aseptic Compounding Isolators (CACIs)
  • CAI models provide single-pass of HEPA-filtered air to remove submicron contaminants, including bacteria, mold spores and most viruses
  • CACI models operate under negative pressure for safe containment of biohazards
Vacuum Processing
  • Thick, reinforced chamber walls support negative-pressure (vacuum level depends on model and pump).
  • Ideal for product degassing and low-oxygen testing down to 1%/10,000 ppm by volume—select anaerobic/hypoxia models for more critical requirements
  • Glove port covers prevent glove damage during vacuum cycling
Anaerobic/Hypoxic Processing
  • Several technologies available to achieve oxygen or relative humidity levels to 1 ppm by volume
  • Ideal for hypoxia studies or work with materials dangerous in the presence of oxygen (such as Lithium ion battery processing)
