What is the StageThru800?

This StageThru800 is a negative pressure, isolated, Pass-through, CVE  device that is intended to provide a significantly safer way for incoming shipments to be staged and prepped for entry into the hazardous drug compounding area. his equipment is designed to provide a protective barrier for the operator.  It is not iso-classified.  It is not appropriate for any type of aseptic operation.

The StageThru is designed for incoming and outgoing material preparation.  Any product exiting this equipment should be properly decontaminated and prepared for patient transport. Appropriate decontamination procedures should be established. Appropriate bag-out procedures for waste materials should be established.

The StageThru800 (CVE) removes the person from a level of exposure risk associated with contaminated inventory. The StageThru800 is made of stainless steel for enhanced cleanability. Highly polished for superior lighting, smoothness, and cleanability.  Front and side panels, as well as door panels and hinging systems, are made from clear polycarbonate.

The top panel is constructed with HEPA Filtered Exhaust Fan Unit with independent air balancing between the StageThru800 and its surroundings.

The StageThru800 is designed to provide a method to safely remove certain contaminated Hazardous materials. As an example, tightly seal hazardous waste bags with an appropriate closure device or adhesive tape. Use double bags where necessary. Apply tape or other materials to blunt any sharp-edged waste before bagging to reduce the potential for tearing the plastic containment bag. Properly identify all contaminated waste as Hazardous Waste according to federal, state, or local laws. After the waste bags are placed in proper locations, all protective clothing, plastic film, and cleaning materials/containers considered hazardous shall be appropriately disposed of using hazard marked sealed bags. It may be necessary to don additional PPE if further handling of the hazardous containers is required. The facility is responsible for the recording and disposal of all contaminated materials including filters, parts, cleaning materials, and protective clothing. These items should be properly decontaminated prior to exiting the CVE.
