Heating And Cooling A Laboratory: Important Considerations For Equipment And Design
ASHRAE Standard 55-2004 determines the temperature, humidity and airflow which the average worker is comfortable; and though people in many industries have the luxury of dressing for the seasons, laboratory workers are usually burdened with an extra layer or two of protective garb. So, room atmosphere considerations also need to take into account that many laboratories have their own requirements as to temperature, humidity and airflow (ventilation). All of this adds up to a laboratory having very strict conditions of the facility’s internal air quality. By Brian Garrett, LEED Green Associate, Product Specialist, Labconco Corporation
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Key Factors In The Removal Of Bacterial Endotoxins And A Cleaning Strategy
This article discusses the removal of bacterial endotoxins in a washing process and the need for a continuous monitoring activity according to common cleaning validation practices. Results of washing tests performed with different load materials following an effective cleaning strategy to remove microbiological soil are presented. In addition, this paper compares two different online assay methods: conductivity analysis and Total Organic Carbon analysis.
Flexible Facilities with Next-Gen Mobile Cleanrooms
Mobile Clean Room (MCR) systems are preengineered, self-contained cleanroom environments that can be used wherever and whenever they are needed.
Installation Of A Purified Water System For The Production Of Protein Plasma Manufacturing
The Central Fractionation Unit of the Belgian Red Cross (C.A.F.-D.C.F.) headquartered in Brussels supplies the domestic market with plasma proteins and acts as a contract manufacturer.
Fluid Bed System Triples Batch Sizes for Laboratorios Normon while Reducing Costs
With the aim of reducing costs, Normon planned to significantly increase its batch sizes for certain products. The manufacturer needed to pay close attention to the high quality and safety standards and economic aspects, as well as flexible production sizes and times.
Precise Filling and Inspection Equipment Fighting Against Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus is the first non-infectious disease that has taken on the magnitude of a pandemic. For diabetes patients, the independent administration of insulin is now a lot easier. Due to their shape, the pens can not only be transported more conveniently, they can also be applied “en route” without attracting attention.
Rouge & Biofilm: Compounding Cleaning Challenges
Rouge may facilitate the development of more tenacious biofilms. Both rouge and biofilm represent cleaning and decontamination challenges to manufacturers. By Michael Gietl and Paul Lopolito
