This standalone workstation is of stainless steel construction with a single piece welded box body with radius ball corners that minimize any unwanted cracks or crevices where your active product can hide.


The creation of custom isolators and containment systems require close collaboration with our customer to fully understand the needs to be met.


Discharge isolators are generally customized systems. In most cases, they're equipped with automatic or semi-automatic docking stations or automatic valves.


Filter dryer isolators are closed systems with built-in stirrers that can be pressurized and evacuated for multiple production steps.


Isolators for research and development applications often involved a combination of isolator types.


The manufacturing of active and highly active pharmaceutical ingredients (API and HAPI) has become a growth area in the drug industry.


Sampling isolators have the ability to connect to most types of sampling ports on a wide range of equipment.


These isolators are available as standard and customized systems. Standard systems are used in analytical and quality control applications and customized systems are for production level weighing and distribution.


Traditional aseptic isolators suffer from several design shortcomings. MBRAUN has addressed these shortcomings in a single-pass aseptic isolator system.


Aseptic recirculation isolators are well matched to applications that require user-friendly operation and ease of decontamination.


Class III Biosafety isolators are fully enclosed glovebox systems that separate the operator and outside environment from the hazardous materials inside.


Containment solutions from MBRAUN cover the hazard spectrum from highly active and toxic substances to simple dust hazards.
