Cytotoxic Drug Safety Cabinet

Cytotoxic Drug Safety Cabinets are the primary barrier against the preparation, manipulation and dispensing of cytotoxic drugs. Cytogard Cabinets are essential for the protection of personnel, product and the environment.

Description

Cytotoxic drug safety cabinets are the primary barrier against exposure to aerosols that are produced in the preparation, manipulation and dispensing of cytotoxic drugs. Many of these drugs are known to be mutagens and are suspected of being carcinogens and teratogens. Recent work involving prions has proven that exposure may result in effects that are insidious and may not manifest themselves for some years. The requirements for protection involve the following:

-Protection of cabinet users and other staff from exposure to aerosols or vapours which may be generated in the preparation, manipulation, and dispensing of cytotoxic drugs

-Protection of drug products, so that they may be prepared in an environment which is essentially free from particulate and biological contamination

Cytogard cabinets are essential for the protection of personnel, product and the environment. It also provides protection of cabinet maintenance personnel from the residue of drug particles which can contaminate filters, fans and other mechanical components.

Applications

Cytogard drug safety cabinets are designed in three nominal widths including a 900mm, 1200mm and 1800mm and fully comply with all requirements of International Standards. Cytotoxic cabinets are necessary for operator and product protection, in addition to the safe guards provided by an effective air barrier and HEPA filter technology. Our CDSC series is also equipped with a carbon filter to remove harmful vapours that may be released during the compounding process.
