RABS – Restricted Access Barrier System For Drug Manufacturing


Restricted Access Barrier System from Syntegon – more flexibility and quality for existing cleanrooms. More product quality due to physical separation of product and operator.

For flexible and secure production in existing cleanrooms the RABS is the right choice. RABS systems represent a physical separation between the production environment and the operator. A RABS can be designed as open or closed system (Closed RABS i.e. for high-potent products) in active or passive execution with associated air handling unit – because of the variability a RABS system can be optimized for the requirements of each project. The operation of the system occurs by means of monitored gloves as well as integrated material locks and transfer ports.

In addition, RABS systems are suitable for retrofitting existing production facilities in order to sustainably increase the production quality.
