Cytostatic Isolator

Cytostatic Isolator
The Ortner PLUS
  • Properties
  • Integrated supply air and exhaust air makes it possible to use the unit independently 
  • Touch panel in the isolator chamber for operator programs for production monitoring of cytostatics
  • Electric height-adjustable workplace for sitting and standing postures (+/- 150 mm)
  • Advantages
  • Inside automatic sliding doors for easy loading and unloading of the lock system
  • Low sound level of < 57 dB (A)
  • Network-capable: User administration, remote access, time synchronization, access control

Cytostatics are hazardous materials that are carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to the reproductive system (CMR): When it is necessary to protect the person outside of the isolator from the product and to protect the product itself from contamination during manufacture, this is when Ortner cytostatics isolators are used. It offers full separation of the operator and process using special air supply and handling via gloves. Negative pressure is maintained in the cytostatics isolator: Even in the case of a minor leak, no substances will be able to leak out.

Raised floor

A perforated raised floor that can be adapted to the process conditions ensures the homogeneity of the laminar flow up to the working level. For critical processes, the hole design is determined through a CFD simulation.
