Sterile Isolator for Cellular Labeling
The Cellular Labeling in Nuclear Medicine are classified by Good Radiopharmacy Practice Standards in the Preparation of Radiopharmaceuticals in Nuclear Medicine as “extemporaneous preparations” and must be carried out in a laminar flow hood (Class A) located in a Class B environment, or within an isolator, which can maintain sterility, located in a Class D environment.
The second solution avoids having to set up a cleanroom within the Nuclear Medicine Department and guarantees full protection of the product and operator.
The labeling operations are carried out inside the box, thanks to a pair of gloves found on the main wall. The material passes through the pre-chamber (in Class B) for the main chamber to never be in direct communication with the external environment.
