UIP has purchased a custom isolator system from EnGuard Systems. The complete isolator consists of two independent isolators docked together and functions as one isolator. The first chamber enables powders and liquids to be weighed and easily transferred to the second chamber. The second chamber is equipped with a scale, a mixer, and containers used for solution preparation. The isolator’s air handling systems consist of HEPA filtration in and out and  provide an ISO class 5 environment in a static condition. The isolator’s alarm and monitor system includes differential pressure gauges with visual and audible alarms. The isolator is capable of operating under positive, negative or neutral pressure and can be manually adjusted.
