This is the second of five papers that will describe the history and development of isolator and containment technology in the fields of research, medicine and pharmaceutical applications. The paper commences with the development of flexible film isolators based on designs similar to Trexler’s later models and the expansion of the use of such isolator designs by the pharmaceutical industry into sterility testing, aseptic processing and, in containment format, for compounding hazardous products. Hospital pharmacies also picked up the technology for dispensing.
