Why glove tester?

Isolator / Glove Box integrity is an absolute necessity to guarantee an aseptic safe working chamber.

Standard leak tests can be verified with a test on the entire isolator, but the leak test on the full chamber volume is not sensitive enough to detect a pinhole leak in one of the gloves.

Some known facts: 

• Gloves are the biggest and most vulnerable elastic consumable  

   the component in an isolator or R.A.B.S.

• Gloves are the most exposed part to punctures or cuts because they are the contact point between the operator hands and process tools.

• Since the gloves are more likely to be changed frequently, the possibility of incorrect installation can cause leak problems.


• Statistically, gloves are the first source of leaks problems inside an isolator


Ravona Glove tester.


A battery-powered glove tester Enables leak testing on gloves installed on isolators or RABS where a strict separation between the isolated area and the external environment is required. The system performs pressure decay integrity tests that comply with the requirements of ISO 14644-7-2004 Annex E.5.

Being an experienced manufacturer of Isolator /Glovebox and a  role player in the pharmaceutical industry, Ravona Pharma turned to the engineering and development department in order to produce a reliable, sophisticated and user-friendly device, Specifically: an integrity Glove Tester.  

Once understanding the demands from such a device, the search for the appropriate components took place with the goal of "Synergy" between the components.


The results are quite remarkable, a fairly compact, easy to use integrated wireless, self-contained glove integrity tester.
