Semi-Rigid Isolators

Semi-Rigid, Germ-Free Isolators

For Gnotobiotic, Microbiome,
Microbial, Altered Schaedler Flora and Other Research That Requires a Controlled Environment

Semi-rigid isolator for gnotobiotic research.

Lap seam sealing process for extra durability.

Designed to Offer Researchers Complete Environmental Control.

CBC offers a variety of semi-rigid isolator systems. These systems are made with durable polypropylene and an expandable urethane glove panel. Systems come with either a conventional style port that uses flexible film caps or an acrylic clamping door system. CBC takes the time an effort to ensure security and provide functionality. First, CBC runs three welding passes on each seam and runs two-silicone cord sealing layers on the front panel to ensure an airtight chamber. CBC also creates adjustable internal shelving that can be used for both mouse and rat cages. CBC also has internal storage bins built into the floor for storing feed, bedding or supplies. CBC's glove panels extend out 4" to provide greater reach within the chamber.

Each system comes with a blower system that can be converted from positive to negative pressure.

Custom size semi-rigid isolators

Pictured above is a L x 36" D x 36" H semi-rigid isolator. CBC also makes a side-by-side 36" L x 36" D x 36" H semi-rigid isolators, and will work with you to design an isolator that meets your specific needs.

Each CBC Flexible Film Canopy is Marked With its Own Unique Serial Number and Manufacture Date to Ensure Traceability and Better Customer Support.

Serial number and manufacture date help ensure traceability and better customer service.

When you buy one of our gnotobiotic isolator systems or just a canopy, your canopy will be marked with its own unique serial number and manufacture date. Should you ever have a issue with the canopy (or need a replacement) CBC can trace your canopy back to the exact specs previously ordered. The same for replacement canopies for existing frames and filter systems.
