Technique Tips


Partial ring

When using the Isolator Strip to form a partial ring or linear barrier, apply segments of an ostomy barrier ring along the bulb seal on the base of the device and generously along the ends.

Ostomy stoma paste can also be applied along the Isolator Strip base and along the ends to help obtain a secure seal.

Closed ring

When using the Isolator Strip to form a ring, apply generous segments of an ostomy barrier ring between the overlapping ends.

Strip Overlap


An ostomy barrier ring applied to the base of the Isolator Strip can be helpful in obtaining a good seal.
