Environmental Monitoring in Isolators

IsoBag™ optimize your environmental monitoring workflow

Mount readily gamma-irradiated contact or settle plates directly to your isolator without prior decontamination.

IsoBag™ improves the environmental monitoring workflow in aseptic production isolators by ensuring fast and safe transfer of contact and settle plates to your production isolator. These unique transportation and packaging bags are simply mounted to the alpha port of the isolator. This keeps the plates available for use at any time – and conveniently stored, without taking extra space within the isolator. There is no need for decontamination cycles before introducing settle or contact plates, freeing up time for your actual production processes and thus saving costs.

Comparison of environmental monitoring workflow in an aseptic production with and without IsoBag™

Workflow without IsoBag™

Limited time between two decontamination cycles due to required space for media storage > results in a short campaign duration

Workflow with IsoBag™

Extended operation time between 2 decontamination cycles using IsoBag™
