The unit features inlet and exhaust HEPA filtration and a HEPA filtered decontamination transfer chamber. The overall dimensions (WxDxH) of the workstation are 89.54 x 31.48 x 85.0" and the weight of the unit is 300 pounds. The frame and hood are of epoxy coated steel. The walls are transparent flexible PVC while the flooring is white PVC. The unit has 4 glove ports for user access so that no gowning is required.

The applicable subheading for the Isophere-HR Contamination Control Workstation will be 8421.39.8015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for filtering or purifying apparatus for gases: other. The rate of duty will be 3.1 percent.
