Providing a level of aseptic quality, Restricted-Access Barrier Systems (RABS) are quickly becoming recognized as an alternative to traditional rigid walled isolators. RABS protect the products and process by spreading an aerodynamic barrier over a critical process zone. While RABS must be set up in an ISO 7 clean room, it can provide ISO 5 in the critical zone under proper treatment.
|Passive RABS||Utilizes clean room ventilation system as its source of clean air|
|Active RABS||Derives clean air from HEPA filters by forced ventilation from an onboard fan|
|Open RABS||Air spills out of the RABS after it passes over the protected zone|
|Closed RABS||After passing over the critical zone, air is filtered before entering the clean room or recirculated back through supply filters|
Cell Therapy Isolators:
Functioning as an alternative to clean rooms, cell therapy isolators offer a contained, sterile environment for the clinical production of cells.
