Pass-Through Chambers for the Modern Pharmacy Cleanroom

Germfree has leveraged our decades of facility design experience to develop a pass-through (airlock) that is uniquely engineered to meet the demands of a modern pharmacy cleanroom. All stainless steel construction with coved interior and exterior corners and a pharmaceutical grade finish make these pass-through boxes the most cleanable and robust on the market.

Germfree’s line of Cleanroom Pass-Through Boxes are designed to facilitate the safe transfer of materials between work areas within a pharmacy cleanroom. Sealed pass-through boxes maintain complete environmental separation between work areas. The pass-through box air eliminates cross contamination between work areas during both material ingress and egress.

For use in hospital pharmacy and pharmaceutical cleanrooms to maintain control of particulates as materials are passed from one room to another. Pass-through boxes reduce traffic within the cleanroom while expediting the transfer of product, supplies and equipment. These units are deigned to fit seamlessly into both new and existing cleanroom facilities.
Per USP <800>: “…a method to transport HDs, HD CSPs, and HD waste into and out of the negative pressure buffer room to minimize the spread of HD contamination. This may be accomplished by use of a pass-through chamber between the negative-pressure buffer area and adjacent space. The pass-through chamber must be included in the facility’s certification to ensure that particles are not compromising the air quality of the negative-pressure buffer room.”
