laminar air flow hood
Barrier Isolation Chamber - an apparatus designed to provide a
Class 100 environment for preparation of sterile products using
solid walls rather than air movement (laminar air flow) to create
a critical zone for product handling, a HEPA filtration system
that conditions the air flowing through the unit to remove initial
particles and particles generated within the controlled environment,
and a means by which products are introduced and people interact
with the product being prepared within the unit.
Biological Safety Cabinet - containment unit suitable for the
preparation of low to moderate risk agents when there is a need
for protection of the product, personnel and environment, according
to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 49.
Cytotoxic - a pharmaceutical that has the capability of killing
living cells. These agents shall include, but are not limited
to, agents classified as cancer chemotherapeutic, carcinogenic,
mutagenic and antineoplastic.
Laminar Airflow Hood - apparatus designed to provide a Class 100
environment for preparation of sterile products using air circulation
in a defined direction that passes through a HEPA filter to remove
the initial particles and particles generated within the controlled
Parenteral - sterile preparations of drugs for injection through
one or more layers of the skin.
Terminal - a patient whose medical condition indicates his/her
life expectancy to be 6 months or less.
