For example, in a medical context, an individual could be isolated to prevent the spread of infectious disease; while in a scientific context, a certain compound or element could be isolated for study.

Etymology: [It. isolato, p. p. of isolare to isolate, fr. isola island, L. insula. See 2d Isle, and cf. Insulate.]
Isolate is the second full-length studio album by the Norwegian progressive metal band Circus Maximus. The album was released on October 24, 2007 in Japan, August, 2007 in Europe and September 4, 2007 in the US. The cover-art for the album as well as a sample track containing an excerpt from the song "Wither", was released by the band on May 29, 2007 on the official Circus Maximus website. Like its former album, Isolate contains the same number of tracks and also track 4 is an Instrumental. Isolate is also the first album to feature new keyboardist Lasse Finbråten after Espen Storø's departure at the end of recording of The 1st Chapter. Lasse Finbråten added more keyboard/synthesizer sounds to the album in both soloing and overall use. This is different to the previous album as Espen Storø's sound centered around the use of the piano. The album entered the Norwegian national charts at number 70 in August, 2007.
