Atmosbag glove bag - an inflatable polyethylene glove box alternative

Aldrich AtmosBag Image

For Laboratory Use
AtmosBag glove bag is a flexible, inflatable polyethylene chamber with built-in gloves that lets you work in a totally isolated and controlled environment. It is an inexpensive, portable alternative to the glove box and is well suited to a variety of tasks and materials.

For Field Sampling
AtmosBag slips over the top of cans and drums to blanket with inert gas and isolate vapors and dusts during sampling operations. Minimizes worker exposure and preserves the integrity of the sampled bulk material.

AtmosBag serves as a portable laboratory for conducting tests, crime scene investigations, and other applications where a clean isolated chamber is needed.


  • Constructed of sturdy 0.003 in. gauge polyethylene that is polished for good clarity
  • Seams are heat-sealed for strength and inflation tested to be leak-free
  • Inlet ports are provided on each side for laboratory gas, vacuum, and electrical lines
  • Available non-sterile and sterile, in two-hand and four-hand configurations, with Tape-seal, Zipper-lock, or Clip closures
  • AtmosBag is not fire-retardant or intended for prolonged contact with solvents, vapors, or chemicals
  • Small size has 2 gas ports. All other sizes have 4 gas ports.

AtmosBag with Tape-seal closure:
The opening of AtmosBag is taped and folded over for a gas-tight seal. Sterile AtmosBags are treated with ethylene oxide. Each AtmosBag is supplied with a strip of removable sealing tape and instructions.

AtmosBag with Zipper-lock closure:
The opening of AtmosBag is closed with a Zipper-lock for a gas-tight seal. The opening is slightly smaller than the width of the bag due to the width of the zipper. Excellent for applications that require repeated access to bag contents and for emergency isolation. Each AtmosBag is supplied with instructions.

NEW AtmosBag with Clip closure:
The opening of AtmosBag is folded over and clipped for a gas-tight seal. Each AtmosBag is supplied with a removable clip and instructions.
