Isolator Technology & Barrier Systems

Pharma isolator & barrier systems


“All from 1 source”

Aseptic filling is all about product safety – and thus the separation of operators and pharmaceutical ingredients. Isolator technology helps to build this crucial barrier. However, isolators must be integrated properly into existing lines to reveal their full potential.

With over 40 years of US-based and 25 years of Europe-based experience in the design and manufacture of barrier systems, Syntegon has established a comprehensive portfolio, including open RABS, closed RABS, containment and isolator systems. All solutions are tailored to customer requirements, from machine design and development to on-site installation and validation.

Key benefits

Integrated systems
Filling machines, barrier technologies and peripheral equipment are seamlessly connected.
Safe aseptic filling
Maximum security trough monitored gloves, transfer ports and material locks.
Full lifecycle support
Syntegon’s expertise covers consulting, isolator design, installation and validation.

Features of our isolator technology & barrier systems

Our barrier systems include open RABS, closed RABS, isolators, and containment systems. They all offer you maximum flexibility for a broad range of applications, protecting products and personnel in the best possible way. While our RABS enhance the quality of everyday multi-product manufacturing in existing cleanrooms, our isolators further boost the safety of filling lines for high potent medications. 


  • Safe filling of aspectic, BSL and highly potent products
  • Qualification and validation support including cycle development
  • Intensive research for RABS, isolator and related barrier technologies
