Provides a high standard of respiratory and dermal protection

The Gamlen SafeTab is your rapid solution for bench top operations needing safe containment of powders, aerosols or harmful agents. The Gamlen SafeTab uses innovative flexible film technology combined with HEPA-in, HEPA-out filtration to provide equivalent containment to a hard-shell isolator. It is the perfect solution to labs that don’t have adequate operator control built in or equipment unsuitable fume cupboard use.

The Gamlen SafeTab is ideal for small scale tablet manufacture as well as development and testing of high potency materials and formulations. It easily houses a Gamlen compaction analyser, Gamlen TTA and balance for full compaction analysis. It can also be used for sample preparation, analytical testing, and small-scale processing including blending, milling and compaction.

SafeTab systems are set up with three zones to assure containment:

Zone 1 Entry Airlock:

double zipper ante-chamber that permits clean items, containers and cleaning materials to be added

Zone 2 Product Handling Chamber:

double doors allow the inbound items into the Product Handing Chamber where they can be processed according to your operations

Zone 3 Exit Bag Liner:

permits items that may have slight surface contamination to exit the PHC with no loss of containment or air escape

The SafeTab operates with a simple negative pressure airflow system for added assurance that materials cannot escape if a tear or glove split occurs. The airflow system is designed to create a 0.5 m/s capture velocity across a fully open glove cuff. This velocity is proven to prevent particulate escape from isolation systems. All SafeTab isolators are inflation tested to 330 Pa pressure to ensure the enclosure is gas tight. The SafeTab can also be supplied as a Nitrogen or Argon inerted chamber that may be vented or simply maintained as an inflated enclosure.

Quick and easy set up

The Gamlen SafeTab provides equivalent containment to a hard-shell isolator that can be built and operating in less than an hour.

Cost effective, the SafeTab can be shipped flat-packed to your facility for set up by in-house technicians.

Alternatively we offer a full service option that includes:

  • Site assembly and set up
  • Operator training for potent compound handling
  • HEPA filter and air flow validation
