Three protective clothing ranges for cleanroom, pharmaceutical, and hazardous environments.
To prevent hazards to staff while handling cytostatics, a range of suitable precautions must be taken. Care must be taken to prevent the formation of cytostatic aerosols and dust and to avoid cytostatic contamination during production, preparation, provision, disposal, storage and transportation of such substances. Potential health hazards can be caused even by low-level contact with cytostatic substances. If there is any risk of contact, use of suitable personal protection equipment (PPE) is mandatory to ensure effective full-scale protection.
As single-use protective clothing, DuPont™ Tyvek® IsoClean®, DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ Tychem® provide a range of products that deliver superior contamination and bioburden protection for products and processes in cleanroom environments.
Tyvek® IsoClean® coveralls are designed especially for use in cleanrooms and controlled environments demanding high levels of microbiological protection.
Protective suits made of Tyvek® are also suitable for activities involved in the production of cytostatics and offer different levels of protection depending on hazard type.
Accessories made of Tychem® 2000 C provide additional protection from inorganic chemicals for body parts subjected to high levels of exposure.
Biohazards: Risk Assessments & Protective Apparel Solutions
Companies are assessing the biohazards that are present in their environment and refining their policies, procedures, and PPE to protect their workers.

Contamination Risk Factors & Validation Stages for Sterile Garments
Humans are the biggest source of contamination in a cleanroom, making cleanroom apparel selection a critical consideration. With the 2020 draft revision of the European Union’s good manufacturing practices (GMP) Annex 1 and the eventual alignment with the US Food & Drug Administration guidelines, companies involved in sterile manufacturing are tasked with developing a contamination control strategy which includes a risk assessment.
IsoClean® and Micro-Clean® apparel
Tyvek® IsoClean® delivers an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. Additionally, with our single-use cleanroom garments, both inventory and use costs are predictable.
Controlled Environments & cleanroom protection
The DuPont Controlled Environments portfolio offers a comprehensive selection of single-use cleanroom apparel and accessories designed for industries that require high standards for particle and microbiological contamination control.
