The Ultimate in Product and Personnel Protection for Sterile Compounding
Germfree’s Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolators use HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters to provide the highest level of operator and product protection. The supply HEPA filter provides laminar flow air, which bathes the entire work area. The exhaust HEPA filter handles all air exiting the LFGI. Additionally, two HEPA filters located inside the HEPA Purge Airlock filter the purged air. All filters are rated to remove particulates and aerosols 0.3 micron in size with a minimum efficiency of 99.99%. Particles that are smaller or larger than 0.3 micron are filtered at a greater efficiency.
The LFGI Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator provides personnel and product protection from particulates, dust, powders and aerosols. Microbiological particulates and aerosols, with the possible exception of prions, are also removed. Operator and product protection from gas and fumes are NOT provided by HEPA filtration, but limited protection from gas and fumes can be provided by venting or ducting. In accordance with the NIOSH alert on the handling of hazardous drugs, the LFGI can be configured for no recirculation and total exhaust of all air exiting the work area. Germfree’s Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolators are designed to meet all USP 797 guidelines for sterile compounding, as well as the regulations for handling hazardous drugs according to USP Chapter 800.
