Esco offers the most diverse equipment range for pharmacy compounding applications - from laminar clean benches, BSCs, containment ventilated enclosures to isolators - based on client’s application and budget requirements.
Our company is the first to launch cGMP-compliant isolators into the pharmacy compounding industry in the United States, making Esco a proven market leader in clean air technology.

Most Diverse Isolator Range
Esco currently has the most diverse range of standard isolators for every single application and budget requirement.

  • Streamline Compounding Aseptic Isolator
  • Streamline Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator (Recirculating or Total Exhaust)
  • Healthcare Platform Isolator
  • Healthcare Platform Isolator – Safe Change Exhaust (SCE)
  • Containment Barrier Isolator – Unidirectional
  • Containment Barrier Isolator – Turbulent
  • General Processing Platform Isolator
  • Aseptic Containment Isolator

Key Features and Benefits
Our pharmacy compounding isolators exceed the demands of 503A/503B facilities and are compliant with USP 797/800 and FDA cGMP standards, respectively. Initially engineered for the pharmaceutical industry, these isolators are now used in pharmacy compounding applications, following the trend of stricter guidelines and practices.

  • Pressure testing to Class 2 containment enclosure as described by ISO 10648-2 standard, which can be done on-site without using blanking plates and silicone.
  • Full unidirectional airflow across entire workzone with 0.45 m/s ± 20%* providing ISO Class 5 (Grade A) environment
  • 316L stainless steel interior surface with 19-mm radius coved ball corners on all four sides* for easy cleaning and high-resistance to hydrogen peroxide vapor
  • Smooth, crevice-free, FDA-compliant glove ports, gaskets, and static seals allow easy cleaning with minimal trapping of contaminants
  • Optional integrated Esco BioVap™ hydrogen peroxide biodecontamination system validated to 6 log reduction of bio-burden
  • Glove leak testing using pressure decay method quantitatively measures pinhole leakages
  • Bag-In, Bag-Out and Low Contamination filter changes in isolators ensure operator and environment protection during a filter change.

Experience Esco Safety - Biological Safety Cabinet/Laminar Flow Cabinets
By incorporating customer feedback, Esco continuously innovates, designs, and manufactures biological safety cabinets and laminar flow cabinets that have more features than any cabinets in their price range. Esco delivers protection at cost-effective price that suits any budget requirements.
Equipped with the latest generation US-made single DC-ECM blowers, our biological safety cabinets and laminar flow clean benches are considered the most energy efficient of its kind - giving the user more than $100 annual savings. Our BSCs and laminar flow clean benches are also equipped with ULPA filters, 10x more efficient than HEPA, that provides ISO Class 3 work zone ideal for compounding sterile preparations.

Ventilated Balance Enclosure
Ventilated Balance Enclosure (VBE) is designed specifically for stability and accuracy while maintaining a high level of operator protection by containing hazardous compounds. Using our aerodynamic design on the sash, arm-rest, and sectionalized baffle, the airborne powders are well contained inside the enclosure and exhausted through a HEPA filter or direct to the lab exhaust. A unique filter mounting system eliminates bypass leaks inherent in conventional clamping systems by utilizing a special seal for H14 filters. Our VBE is your trusted partner in providing you protection when handling non-sterile hazardous compounds.
