Personal Protection

When substances or processes pose hazards to operator health, containment is the priority. MBRAUN can help you ensure the absolute safety of employees by offering specially designed isolator containment solutions and inert gas glovebox systems.

We have clean-environment solutions whether you're protecting operators from highly active or toxic substances or simple dust hazards. The disparity in operator protection requirements across the industries we serve has led to MBRAUN's development of systems that emphasize defined containment levels, filtration quality, safe change filters, European explosive-atmosphere (ATEX) zones and even defined atmospheres.


The MBRAUN SAFEGUARD personal protection booth is a safe, convenient, and efficient way to examine possibly infected patients.
In addition, the SAFEGUARD booth can be utilized to control access points to a facility that requires additional safety measures before entry.
The SAFEGUARD booth is also designed for ease of use, mobility, and easy on-site installation. SAFEGUARD booth will reduce the need for PPE materials such as masks, gloves and gowns.
Need additional features? User protection is improved by the physical barriers such as the windows, gloves and walls compared to direct person to person contact. Increased protection with positive pressure and Hepa filtration efficiency of 99.95%.

  • In addition to other areas of application, the system is also suitable for the examination of COVID-19 patients in order to achieve increased protection for the nursing staff.
  • A safe, convenient and efficient way to examine possibly infected patients.
  • Safety overpressure feature ensures that airborne contaminants do not enter the box.
  • Reduced need for personal protection equipment including masks, gloves and gowns.
  • Easy to move and install within a facility or public space.
  • Includes blower and HEPA 13 filtration unit with 99.95% efficiency for particles with a
    diameter of 0.3 μm.
  • Weatherproof system design.


The isolator operates in a constant relative negative pressure. Negative pressure is generated by a built in blower positioned after the outlet filter. The blower is frequency controlled and regulates the pressure to -200 Pa with an air exchange rate up to > 15 times/h. The air exchange rate can be reduced by adjusting the manual valve at the air inlet side. The frequency controlled blower will automatically increase its speed in case of a defective glove or leak. This function allows optimal operator protection under all circumstances and provides the required air speed across a glove port opening during a breach.

  • Operator protection while working with nanoparticles
  • Glovebox operating in under pressure mode
  • Gas inlet and outlet with HEPA-Filters
  • Automatic generation of airflow in case of leak to guaranty the under pressure


The ISO-Pro-Nano glovebox with integrated blower is designed for operator protection while working with nanoparticles. It is operated in relative negative pressure to the environment (-200 Pa). The operator safety is guaranteed by the high leak tightness of < 1 vol%/h and the automatic (under)pressure control. In case of a leak (e.g., the breakdown of a glove) the blower generates a permanent inward gas flow with a velocity > 0.5 m/s to prevent the diffusion of box atmosphere into the surroundings. Many options are available to enrich the basic version such as with HEPA H 14 filters, front hinged window, inert gas purge operation, round/rectangular transfer chamber, push-push filter, round antechamber and its filtration, overpressure valve.

Tritium Retention Systems (TRS)

Tritium Retention Systems (TRS) convert tritiated chemical species (principally elemental, oxide and hydrocarbon) in the process stream to the oxide form (HTO) and remove the tritiated water by adsorption on molecular sieve beds.

  • Tritium Oxidizing System
  • Water Capturing System
  • Worldwide Operating Capability Through Use of Standardized Power Supply
  • Incorporates High-vacuum Feedthroughs
