CAI and CACI Isolators Certification
EOC1 is your trusted source for reliable service, repair, and certification of compounding aseptic isolators (CAIs) and compounding aseptic containment isolators (CACIs). Our thoroughly trained technicians are qualified to perform certifications, troubleshooting, and/or repairs of your aseptic isolator(s). Compounding aseptic containment isolators and compounding aseptic isolators are increasingly popular alternatives to biological safety cabinets or laminar flow cabinets or workbenches for pharmaceutical compounding activities.
CAI vs. CACI
These are sophisticated tools used by pharmacies and laboratories in the safe preparation of compounded sterile products (CSPs). CAIs and CACIs can be essential items for the preparation of hazardous compounds, but they’re useful for other tasks as well.
While compounding aseptic isolator certification and compounding aseptic containment isolator certifications are mandated, these inspections and certifications serve to limit your liability in the unlikely event of contamination. Maintaining CAI certification and/or CACI certification is not only required; it better ensures the ongoing health and safety of your employees and customers alike.
Compounding aseptic isolators (CAIs) are sophisticated tools that serve to protect your products from inadvertent contamination. These glove-box compounding aseptic isolators provide a positive pressure environment for the safe compounding of sterile preparations. They’re a key component of any laboratory or facility where sterile preparation is routinely performed.
Compounding aseptic containment isolators (CACIs) serve a dual purpose. They simultaneously protect products and personnel. The “containment” part of the name refers to the negative pressure environment that prevents contamination of both employees and the substances undergoing manipulation when compounding hazardous drugs. CACI certification helps to ensure the safety and functionality of your facility’s compounding activities, on an ongoing basis.
Why Choose EOC1?
Some manufacturers develop these hoods as different models. Other manufacturers may produce more versatile models, which can be interchanged to operate as either a CAI or a CACI unit. Accordingly, it is crucial that you hire a trained, experienced professional involved in the initial setup — and ongoing certification — of these types of hoods for safe, proper operation. The professionals at EOC1 can help you identify and/or rectify any problems before they emerge, so you can avoid potentially costly downtime.
