USP 797 FAQ: How large does the ante-room need to be?

From USP’s FAQ on USP 797 page:

126. Is a large ante-room required, or would a small vestibule for hand washing and donning of protective garb be sufficient? In other words, could there be an IV work room that is unclassified where the computer input, unboxing and storage of IVs takes place outside of an ante-room to reduce the square footage of space required to be ISO 7 or 8? The IVs would still pass into the buffer area through the vestibule that is the ante-room.

USP does not define the process flow requirements. A small ante room that simply facilitates hand hygiene and gowning is adequate.
