ITELPHARMA has acquired a Sterility Testing Isolator designed and manufactured by Tema Sinergie. The isolator is composed of a Transfer Chamber and Testing Chamber, equipped with an integrated Open Loop / Single Pass VPHP Generator (HYPER). The isolator will support us with the considerable amount of tests weekly provided by Itelpharma, using rapid bio-decontamination cycles. The isolator has been installed in our radiopharmaceutical facility based in Ruvo di Puglia, Bari, Italy and it's currently full operational serving our sterility testing activities. Firmly believing in the positive value of technological and commercial partnerships, ITELPHARMA appreciated the collaboration demonstrated by Tema Sinergie during the project.

ST-IS is an aseptic isolation system designed to provide the best environmental and working conditions for conducting sterility tests according to Pharmacopeia.

ST-IS consists of two chambers with different characteristics and functionalities. The first step of the workflow involves placing the material for sterility testing into the Transfer Chamber, followed by the execution of the decontamination process using the integrated VPHP system. Once the process is complete, the material can be transferred to the Processing Chamber without compromising the aseptic level of the Processing Chamber, which has been previously subjected to the decontamination process.

The Working Chamber is equipped with a state-of-the-art integrated peristaltic pump, allowing for simple and reliable execution of the test.





The ST-IS assures the highest air quality in the isolated environment.


The ST-IS is equipped with a routine automatic leak testing system which performs an independent leak test cycle for each chamber according to the pressure change method (5.2) ISO 10648-2(E).

Remote Assistance

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection allows a secure and private communication via Internet network and provides remote access and assistance, updates and maintenance anytime, everywhere.


Maximizing operators’ effectiveness is essential to minimize the risks of accidents, eliminate unscheduled downtime and boost production quality. Operators are assured the most comfortable working conditions by the outstanding ergonomics of the ST-IS.


Thanks to the new sustainable low voltage ventilation fans, the isolator has a very low energy consumption throughout its life.



The ST-IS series is equipped with an integrated Automatic Glove Leak Testing System (AGLTS 2) in compliance with the international standard ISO 14644-7 Annex E.5 and Annex 1, EU Guidelines.
