Merck launches IsoBag for faster, easier transfer of plates to production isolators

Merck, a leading science and technology company, today introduced the IsoBag™ for faster, easier and more convenient transfer of contact and settle plates to production isolators.

IsoBag™ offers a more streamlined alternative for environmental monitoring, helping to make workflows more efficient, productive and flexible. Isobag eliminates decontamination cycles, allowing for an uninterrupted workflow.

The new IsoBag™ offers a more streamlined alternative for environmental monitoring, and helps make workflows more efficient, productive and flexible. In traditional environmental monitoring workflows, single-bagged plates are decontaminated and stored in the isolator. Limited space in the isolator allows storage of only a small supply of ready-to-use plates. When this supply runs out, workflows are interrupted for additional decontamination cycles. The new IsoBag™ increases operation up-time by eliminating these decontamination cycles and allowing for an uninterrupted workflow.

"An uninterrupted workflow means improved productivity for our environmental monitoring customers," said Theresa S. Creasey, head of Applied Solutions Strategic Marketing and Innovation at Merck's life science business. "We understand how precious time and lab space are to our customers. Our new IsoBag™ is a great example of our continued focus on the development of high-impact innovations."

The complete product is gamma-irradiated for immediate use and includes sterile bags for safe transport of used plates.

The IsoBag™ extends Merck's comprehensive portfolio of products specifically designed for environmental monitoring in isolators and critical cleanrooms. All plates are produced in cleanrooms and are available with four neutralizers for inactivation of a wide range of disinfectants and inhibiting residues. The plates are designed for long shelf life and room temperature stability and meet European and U.S. pharmacopeia recommendations.
