A pharmaceutical isolator is a decontaminated unit supplied with 100 (ISO 5) or higher quality of air, which provides an uncompromised and continuous isolation of its interior from its exterior environment. Pharmaceutical isolators in the pharmaceutical industry are used to handle drugs, materials, and quality control processes in a system that offers complete isolation from the surrounding environment and form the personnel processing these materials. Pharmaceutical isolators handle materials and products with ease. Pharmaceutical isolators come in various shapes and sizes. At present, pharmaceutical isolators are designed to fulfil the challenges and market requirements for low Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) containment systems in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, radiopharmaceutical, and nuclear industries. Pharmaceutical isolators provide a safe working environment that addresses safety concerns for operators in the research, manufacturing, testing, and handling of hazardous materials. Pharmaceutical isolators may be portable, stationary, or grouped to other isolators to form a production unit or a complete containment solution. Generally, pharmaceutical isolators are designed to be tested and certified by an industry’s requirements.
Pharmaceutical Isolators Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing demand for pharmaceutical isolators in the growing pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry is expected to be a major factor driving the pharmaceutical isolators market over the forecast period.
