Why glove tester?
Isolator / Glove Box integrity is an absolute necessity to guarantee an aseptic safe working chamber.
Standard leak tests can be verified with a test on the entire isolator, but the leak test on the full chamber volume is not sensitive enough to detect a pinhole leak in one of the gloves.
Some known facts:
• Gloves are the biggest and most vulnerable elastic consumable component in an isolator
• Gloves are the most exposed part to punctures or cuts because they are the contact point
between the operator's hands and process tools.
• Since the gloves are more likely to be changed frequently, the possibility of incorrect
installation can cause leakage problems.
• Statistically, gloves are the first source of leak problems inside an isolator.
Ravona Glove tester.
A battery-powered glove tester Enables leak testing on gloves installed on isolators or RABS where a strict separation between the isolated area and the external environment is required. The system performs pressure decay integrity tests that comply with the requirements of ISO 14644-7-2004 Annex E.5.
Being an experienced manufacturer of Isolator /Glovebox and a role player in the pharmaceutical industry, Ravona Pharma turned to the engineering and development department in order to produce a reliable, sophisticated and user-friendly device, Specifically: an integrity Glove Tester.
Once understanding the demands from such a device, the search for the appropriate components took place with the goal of "Synergy" between the components.
The results are quite remarkable:
