Mach-Aire, the Bolton based innovators in clean air technology have been successful in obtaining a contract for a two glove Positive Pressure Isolator for the Laboratoire de Therapie Cellulaire in the south of France. This adds another installation to their growing international customer base.
The IPP-120 Isolator with twin transfer hatches, will be used on stromal cell work within their Grade C Clean Room. Specifically, it will be used for cell harvesting and the sterile transfer of cells from one container to another.
The Grade A environment in the Isolator and the physical barrier between the product and the technician ensures optimum operating conditions, whist the ergonomic design and variable height adjustment of the Isolator means the unit is easy to use. A high quality stainless steel finish with a flat working base with large radius corners reduces cleaning time and eliminates dirt traps, which was a critical requirement by the end user.
This complex Isolator will involve very close co-operation between the customer and the Mach-Aire design team and will result in the manufactured equipment undergoing a full Factory Acceptance Test in the Spring. Installation and full validation will then follow immediately after delivery to site.
Mike Davies, the Sales & Marketing Director of Mach-Aire added "Our wealth of experience in clean air technology has enabled Mach-Aire to secure this project allowing us to add another customer to our expanding installation list in the pharma and biotech sector".
