CBC offers a variety of softwall, germ free barrier and containment isolator systems to meet your gnotibiotic research requirements.
CBC Gnotobiotic Isolators
Every CBC flexible film (softwall) isolator system provides a sterile or microbially-controlled laboratory environment. CBC offers both positive or negative pressure isolator units that provide protection for both animals and personnel. Each isolator is made of either 20-mil vinyl or 20-mil urethane film and have a stainless steel 316 frame.
Our highly durable, flexible film (softwall) isolators provide a sterile or microbially-controlled laboratory environment so immunodeficient research animals are only exposed to microorganisms that researchers wish to have present in the animal.

1. Of or relating to gnotobiology.
2. Free of germs or associated only with known or specified germs.
A gnotobiotic animal (from Greek roots gnostos 'known' and bios 'life') is an animal in which only certain known strains of bacteria and other microorganisms are present. Technically, the term also includes germ-free animals, as the status of their microbial communities is also known.

We're here to help.
CBC's gnotobiotic, flexible film (softwall) isolators are ideal for reseachers that:
- need a sterile or microbially-controlled laboratory environment,
- work with gnotobiotic animals,
- use genetically engineered animals,
- use transgenic rodent models,
- use immunodeficient animals,
- use axenic animals,
- use defined flora rodents,
- want to breed their own germ-free nucleus colonies,
- need to colonize germfree rodents with a standardized microbiota,
- need product containment,
CBC's lap seam sealing process is more durable than single seam seals and helps protect both personnel and product from accidental contamination.
