What Applications are suitable for the Inflatable Flexible Isolators

Schematic's Flexi Popup Isolator is a rapid deployment, inflatable isolator that is designed to be erected in seconds using a hand/foot pump or a compressed air supply.

Here are some of the applications where Schematic sell this innovative technology.

Mobile barrier isolators are versatile tools that provide a high level of containment and sterility, and their mobility allows them to be used in various settings where traditional fixed isolators might not be practical. Here are some specific applications:

1. Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology

  • Clinical Trials: Ensuring sterility and containment when handling and preparing investigational drugs at different trial sites.
  • Small-Scale Production: Ideal for pilot production batches and processes that require temporary sterile environments.
  • Research and Development: Provides a controlled environment for handling new compounds and conducting experiments.

2. Hospital and Healthcare Settings

  • Sterile Compounding: Used for preparing sterile medications in hospital pharmacies, allowing mobility between different departments.
  • Infection Control: Handling infectious agents or hazardous drugs to protect healthcare workers and patients in various locations.
  • Patient Isolation: Creating a sterile environment for treating immunocompromised patients or those with infectious diseases.

3. Laboratory and Research Facilities

  • Field Research: Supports secure handling and processing of samples in remote or on-site research activities.
  • Contaminated Site Investigations: Safe containment for handling potentially hazardous samples collected from field investigations.
  • Mobile Laboratories: Setting up temporary, controlled environments for conducting research in various locations.

4. Aerospace and Defence

  • Hazardous Material Handling: Safe containment and handling of hazardous materials during field operations or transport.
  • Decontamination and Quarantine: Provides a controlled space for decontaminating equipment or quarantining personnel exposed to hazardous substances.

5. Environmental and Agricultural Research

  • Sample Collection and Analysis: Secure containment for collecting and analyzing environmental or agricultural samples on-site.
  • Pest and Disease Control: Controlled environment for studying and managing pests or pathogens without risk of spreading.

6. Emergency Response and Disaster Relief

  • Biocontainment: Critical for safely handling biological threats or infectious outbreaks during emergency responses.
  • Temporary Laboratories: Rapid deployment of controlled environments for sample analysis and testing in disaster zones.

7. Veterinary Medicine

  • Animal Studies: Secure handling of animals and samples in veterinary research and clinical settings.
  • Mobile Clinics: Provides a sterile environment for veterinary procedures in field settings or mobile clinics.

8. Industrial Applications

  • Containment of Hazardous Substances: Safe handling and processing of hazardous chemicals or materials in various industrial settings.
  • Quality Control: On-site quality control testing of products in a controlled environment.

9. Educational Institutions

  • Portable Teaching Labs: Enables hands-on training and demonstrations in controlled environments across various locations.

Benefits of Mobile Barrier Isolators

  • Portability: Easy to move and set up in different locations, providing flexibility for various applications.
  • Cost-Effective: Reduces the need for permanent installations and extensive cleanroom facilities.
  • Rapid Deployment: Can be quickly deployed for emergency situations or temporary needs.
  • Versatility: Adaptable to a wide range of applications and settings, making them suitable for dynamic environments.
  • Enhanced Safety: Ensures a high level of containment and sterility, protecting both operators and materials.


Mobile barrier isolators are essential for applications requiring high-level containment and sterility in various settings. Their mobility, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness make them suitable for a wide range of industries and scenarios, from healthcare and pharmaceuticals to environmental research and emergency response.
