Glove Boxes, Isolation
Definition : Glove boxes designed to provide a confined atmosphere in which materials may be stored and/or processed or may be performed in such a way as to protect them from the operator and the environment. These boxes are typically operated under low-level positive pressure, isolating the interior of the box from the external environment; some isolation glove boxes are manufactured with special characteristics intended to prevent the influence of specific external conditions, such as humidity, temperature, and/or particles. Isolation glove boxes are used mainly to prevent environmental contamination of the samples in clinical laboratory tests.
