Portable Compliant Isolator (PCI)

What is the Portable Compliant Isolator ?

The Portable Compliant Isolator (PCI or "Glove Box") is a completely portable cabinet which provides a hermetically sealed environment. It can either be used to keep hazards out - for example keeping airborne bacteria out of sterilised preparation, or keeping hazards in - for example protecting an operator against dangerous chemicals or fumes. It is small and convenient, can be wheeled easily from room to room and can run on either mains electricity or battery power

Applications

The PCI is of use in any situation involving aseptic preparation or manufacture, as this requires a preparation environment with clean air. It is used by major hospitals throughout the UK for clinical trials, gene therapy, monoclonal antibody preparation and chemotherapy reconstitution.

How does it work?

Isolators are the modern day solution and are being used increasingly in all market sectors. An isolator, as the name implies, is an isolated work area with physical barrier to separate it from its surroundings and operatives. Work takes place from the outside via gauntlets or in larger units, a half-suit arrangement. The isolator is supplied and exhausted with HEPA filtered air, and can be maintained at positive or negative pressure for product and operator protection respectively. Air flows can be turbulent or laminar, and transfer devices are used to allow the safe transfer of products in and out.

Advantages

  • Completely portable - the PCI can be moved quickly and conveniently to where it is required
  • Available at any time 24/7 - preparations can be done on the spot with no waiting to have materials prepared in separate aseptic suites
  • Cost effective - a complete aseptic environment at a fraction of the cost of larger alternatives
  • Completely isolated - not compromised by the presence of people inside, as is the case in aseptic suites.
