New Compounding Pharmacy Videos Provide Product Information, Teach Safety

A new resource in the compounding pharmacy industry had just been released by Esco. The videos can be viewed at:

Hatboro, PA (PRWEB) June 22, 2009 -- Esco proudly announces the release of its new series of safety and education videos for the compounding pharmacy industry. Titled "Pharmacy Isolator Safe Use and Product Videos," these videos teach and inform pharmaceutical workers how to safely use barrier isolators. The videos can be viewed at:

Pharmacy isolators provide a safe and clean environment for compounding of hazardous, sterile drug preparations in compliance with USP 797 criteria. Barrier isolation systems provide inherently superior sterility and operator protection compared to open front clean air devices such as laminar flow clean benches and Class II biological safety cabinets.

When used as part of a system that includes operator aseptic technique training, process validation, expiration setting, and product quality maintenance after the CSP leaves the compounding pharmacy, isolators are a cost-effective solution especially for lower-volume pharmacies. They reduce operating and renovation costs, take up less space, and are easier to maintain.

The Esco Pharmacy Isolators Educational (Safe Use) Video informs and educates potential and existing users of barrier isolators on the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Risks Involving Cytotoxic Drug Preparation
  • USP Guidelines & Requirements
  • Types of isolators
  • How Isolators Work
  • Safe Use of Pharmacy Isolators
  • Cleaning & Disinfection Procedures
  • Maintenance

The Esco Isoclean Pharmacy Isolators Product Video informs and educates potential isolator users on the following topics:
  • Introduction
  • Positive Pressure Isolators
  • Negative Pressure Isolators
  • Airflow
  • Features and Benefits
