Barrier isolator or isolation

A barrier isolator, or barrier isolation equipment, are devices that provide a physical barrier between technicians and work in process. Isolators are routinely found within the pharmaceutical and medical industries, and with the recent implementation of USP 797 "Pharmaceutical Compounding: Sterile Preparations", is a set of sterile compounding standards issued by the United States Pharmacopoeia, that are increasingly used by drug manufacturers. Barrier isolation equipment is designed to provide an isolation of a process, or the maintenance of an internal condition (e.g., sterile or aseptic).

Isolators may operate at positive, negative, or ambient differential pressure. Isolators may provide personnel, product, or environmental protection, or any combination thereof. They are used throughout industry, from orange juice filling lines to cytotoxic drug compounding, to electronics manufacturing.

In pharmacy applications, humans continue to be the greatest source of organic contamination during drug manufacturing, minimizing direct contact has significant positive impact on the quality and safety, of the final product. In the mid 1980's, the pharmaceutical industry began to employ barrier isolators/isolation as a standard, and later, in the 1990s, Restricted Access Barrier Systems, or RABS, were employed to separate human contact from the process. The acronym RABS was coined by Stewart Davenport of Upjohn (now Pfizer).

Manufacturers of barrier isolators include Schaefer Technologies Inc., EnGuard Systems, Containment Technologies, and Chase-Guard Systems.
