ISOFLEX-R Isolators

A modular rigid-wall isolator with fast bio-decontamination solutions.

Getinge ISOFLEX-R Isolator protects the product against contamination during aseptic operations such as sterility testing. The isolator maintains an enclosed and sterile environment throughout transfer, manipulation, and bio-decontamination. 

The answer to your daily needs for aseptic processing

  • Modular design 
  • Multi-purpose isolator
  • Validated process control
  • Full traceability and compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11
  • Ventilation: engineered turbulent flow (ETF) or unidirectional airflow (UDAF)

Protect against contamination

Isolators narrow containment to just around the process within the chambers, making it easier to trace sources of contamination. Energy consumption can be lower than with a cleanroom, as only the environment inside the isolator needs to be controlled. A modular isolator system provides flexible configuration and modification possibilities to meet your specific process and application requirements.

Modular design

Flexible use

The modular design allows the isolator to be tailored according to your specific needs.

Three-glove or four-glove versions are available.

Bio-decontamination airlocks can be added at one or both ends of the isolator.

A large front window can be easily opened for fast and ergonomic loading.

The ISOFLEX-R is compatible with our full range of DPTE® Transfer Solutions to ensure safe and efficient transfer without breaking containment.

Efficient ventilation

Maintain aseptic conditions

With the ISOFLEX-R, choose from unidirectional or turbulent airflow to meet various process requirements.

In this sealed, operator-free environment with control over sources for contamination entry (HEPA filters, transfer ports), Engineered Turbulent Flow (ETF) is sufficient to maintain sterile conditions. However, for aseptic applications where it is important to ensure that non-viable particles are rapidly swept away from critical areas, unidirectional airflow (also known as UDAF, LAF, Laminar flow) is appropriate to meet Grade A/ISO 4.8.

When handling sterile APIs, a HEPA filter with safe changeover is available as an option.

Traceability

The ISOFLEX-R offers Siemens or Allen Bradley PLC for process control and monitoring. Both control systems are equipped with a 19” color touch panel PC with an intuitive user interface for easy navigation, operation, and parameter monitoring.

It provides standard, Windows 10 based, built-in SCADA for central supervision of process performance. Authorized users can adjust process parameters according to the unique requirements of a specific process. Batch reports can be digitally stored locally or in the user’s network.

The ISOFLEX-R is fully FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and GMP Annex 11 capable and compliant.

Reliable bio-decontamination alternatives

When it comes to bio-decontamination, the ISOFLEX-R provides the means to bio-decontaminate the isolator working chamber, the hatch, or both chamber and hatch simultaneously.

The integrated H2O2 generator ensures safe operations and reliable processes. The unit is controlled by the same interface as the isolator and provides full traceability of H2O2 bottles.

Easily upgrade your ISOFLEX-R isolator

Designed for modularity, the ISOFLEX-R isolator can be easily retrofitted on-site. Bio-decontamination hatches can be added at a later stage if required.

Additional upgrades are available, including environmental monitoring devices, shelving, H2Osensors, and Getinge Glove Leak Testers can be added afterward, providing accurate and repeatable testing for glove and sleeve integrity. 

Sterile applications

The ISOFLEX-R is a multipurpose and tailored solution used in various aseptic applications.
