A bomb calorimeter completely closes off its contents from the surroundings so that neither energy nor matter can be exchanged between the system and its surroundings, making it an isolated system.
All the above is correct. It being an isolated system is extremely important and is why bomb calorimeters are extremely useful. This allows for the very accurate calculation of the energy released when a substance has been combusted.
