Drum Iris Sampling is a skid useful to contain the interface to a drum full of powder/liqiud to be sampled into an inert, or controlled (i.e. GMP Grade or low humidity or other as required) atmosphere. The iris is positioned on the working level, horizontally oriented, of an isolator chamber. A transpallet lifts up the drum trought the iris and make it available to the inner chamber, and then to the operator for a safe (via gloves) sampling. The skid is using a single IRIS innovative concept of interfacing container, without using consumables, orings or (drum) sleeves, and a controller acting on a fluid injection and an extraction fan to reach the target environmental conditions before allowing the sampling procedure.
CSV Life Science Srl is a Pharmaceutical Engineering & Validation company specialized in High containment design and custom made contained realizations. Actually CSV Containment , the department focused in contained solutions, is launching a new own innovative technology, named DRUM IRIS TECHNOLOGY, useful to any application , like, dispensing&sampling, charging, FIBC interfacing, and material pass box, that involves contained DRUM handling. This technology aim to go over the Bag In Bag Out current procedure , usually used for transfer In/Out, drums to/from an isolator. CSV containment invented a device and a system to never expose the inner (to be isolated) chamber/environement , to the background and operators , where round shape container are utilised for powder/material handling. Together with this own technology , CSV is using/mixing the up to date, flexible and rigid solutions to provide tailor made contained skids.
