The H155 GMP Hypoxystation* is specifically designed to be used as a clean-air, hypoxic isolator in processes following Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). This workstation allows two people to work in the chamber at same time and is specifically designed to accurately control the parameters of O2, CO2, temperature, and humidity.
Providing Grade A air cleanliness (EU GMP), this hypoxic isolator combines sterile laminar airflow, positive operating pressure, and physical isolation, to provide highly effective product protection. Due to being a completely closed, re-circulating, isolator system, this workstation can be housed in a Grade D cleanroom during GMP compliant use.
The full-time environmental control offered by the H155 GMP Hypoxystation maximises the reproducibility of the cell-manufacturing processes carried out inside. Further, this Hypoxystation is designed to be modular and can be combined in different ways to form a production line that ensures that the cell-culture environment is never broken from the beginning to the end of the manufacturing process.
Each workstation is tested to ensure compliance with the relevant portions of ISO 14644-3. In addition, tests carried out in our own laboratories confirm the integral HEPA filtered laminar flow system meets the requirements set out in BS EN 12469:2000 with regard to protection of the working area from particulate and microbial contamination.
This workstation is equipped with two integral airlocks (one at either side of the main workstation chamber) providing an ideal layout for a ‘production line’ style of working. Two sizes of airlock are available: 17.5 litres or 43 litres. These airlocks have been specifically designed to aid the transfer of serological pipettes into the workstation. Each 17.5 litre airlock is capable of accommodating 10 x 500ml Duran bottles and the internal dimensions are 197mm x 388mm x 190mm (W x D x H). The 43 litre airlocks (measuring 335 x 300 x 300mm) can each accommodate up to 20 x 500ml Duran bottles.
The patented oval glove ports can be fitted with your choice of gauntlet and provide maximum comfort when used over extended periods.
With internal working area dimensions of (w x d x h): 2200 x 750 x 620mm, there is a huge amount of working space inside the workstation chamber to house equipment such as large scale bioreactors and imaging systems.
