The company has provided a HPI unit, which is an isolator intended for the handling and compounding of chemotherapy drugs for cancer patients
Esco Thailand has installed one Isoclean Healthcare Platform Isolator (HPI) at the pharmacy compounding facility of Vibharam Hospital in Bangkok Thailand in February 2022.
This hospital provides top-notch medical treatment services in accordance with the leading international standards such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) general chapter <800>.
Esco has configured this HPI to operate at negative pressure relative to the ambient environment
The installed HPI unit is a two-glove compounding aseptic containment isolator (CACI) intended for the handling and compounding of chemotherapy drugs for cancer patients. Esco has configured this HPI to operate at negative pressure relative to the ambient environment. This is to ensure optimal operator and environmental protection during the compounding process to limit, and essentially eliminate, potential exposure to hazardous drugs.
The new isolator (HPI-G3) facilitates containment while enabling aseptic processing in an ISO Class 5 per ISO-14644-1 (Grade A per EU GMP) environment.
The safe change design system allows the replacement of gloves during the in-process operation of the equipment.
