Medication - Sterile Compounding - Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Requirements with Compounding Isolators

What Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be worn when compounding sterile products in a Compounding Aseptic Isolator (CAI) or Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator (CACI) ?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The same personal protective equipment expected in a clean room when compounding in a laminar workflow bench are required when utilizing a CAI or CACI unless the manufacturer has written information based on validated environmental testing that any component(s) of PPE or personnel cleansing are not required.  This includes double gloving for the preparation of hazardous medications.
