Containment & Isolation White Papers & Case Studies

  1. How To Optimize Your Weighing Process
    9/11/2014

    Many factors found in the laboratory can influence the behavior of a balance. Learn how to anticipate and regulate them to achieve the ideal settings for your balance and the most reliable weighing results. By Michelle Sheridan, Sales Specialist, Premium Weighing Sartorius Corporation

  2. Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
    12/11/2013

    Maik W. Jornitz, President, G-CON Manufacturing LLC

    Past experiences have shown that too often product quality is based on sole reliance of vendor certifications, statements and promises. To diminish such reliance new technologies started to be implemented, like process analytical technologies (PAT), process controls, automation etc. often once again overexerted as the solution to all problems. Activities that supposedly result in higher product quality due to better process controls. Maik W. Jornitz, Chief Operating Officer, G-CON Manufacturing LLC

  3. Reducing Laboratory Fume Hood Energy Consumption
    9/5/2013

    There is an ever-increasing demand for laboratories to have a reduced impact on the environment, as well as a lower cost to operate. With this continuing push for reduced energy consumption in laboratories, lab planners, architects, engineers, and lab managers are leaving no stone unturned. By Luke Savage, LEED Green Associate

  4. Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Fume Hood
    9/5/2013

    The process of finding the right fume hood can be a little complicated if you don't know the right questions to ask. You can save yourself a lot of trouble if you know the answers to these questions when you start shopping.

  5. Concentrating Heat Sensitive Samples Without Degradation
    9/5/2013

    Typically, sample concentration or solvent evaporation requires heat to drive the evaporation process. For heat sensitive samples, adding too much heat can damage or modify the structure of  the analyte. By Jenny Sprung, Product Manager

  6. Containment Capabilities Of A Class II, Type A2 BSC Using A Chemo Pad On The Worksurface
    7/21/2013

    The Test Objective is to study the containment capabilities of the BSC when using a chemo plus prep mat on the worksurface.

  7. The Key To API Containment And Control
    3/14/2013

    When sampling and dosing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) or high-potency APIs (HPAPIs), containment can be critical. Good laboratory practices (GLP) and the proper equipment designed and calibrated to facilitate GLP when transferring, mixing or blending APIs can reduce product waste, product contamination and minimize lost profit as well as create a healthier, contaminant free environment for lab operators. By Jason Frye

  8. Drastically Reduced Isolator Decontamination Cycles
    2/28/2013

    With the use of catalytic aeration, M + P is able to reduce the duration of the aeration phase in isolators by about 50 %. The aeration phase is the most time consuming cycle during H2O2 decontamination. By Felix Henning, Optima Packaging Group GmbH 

  9. Emerging Fourth Generation Pharmaceutical Containment Technologies
    2/25/2013

    Barrier technology has become overwhelmingly accepted as the basis for new aseptic processing facilities in 2013. The traditional clean room facilities of the 20th century are being rapidly replaced with advanced barrier based technology filling facilities. This technological evolution is dramatically reducing the risk of product contamination and risk of infection to patients. By Sterling Kline, RA IPS

  10. 4 Factors To Consider For Effective Cleanroom Design
    2/21/2013

    You have been tasked by senior management to look into purchasing a cleanroom environment for a possible new product line. The mandate is that the cleanroom system provider must guarantee temperature, humidity, pressurization, and classification. As with any purchase, it is always best to be an educated buyer and have researched the options available to you. Knowing what questions to ask and what the cumulative effect is to those answers will make for a sound decision process and an overall successful project. By Rick Dobson, AES Clean Technology
