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
Safe And Effective Radiopharmaceutical Sterilization
Case study on the development of a radiation-shielded cell for the sterilization of radiopharmaceuticals.
Major Nutritional Supplement Manufacturer Increases Production With New Mixing And Blending System
A major nutritional supplement manufacturer needed to address the need for greater efficacy and additional capacity in the production of various products. Custom Powder Systems manufactured a 5000 Liter blender that fits and can be loaded and discharged within their limited manufacturing space and low ceiling heights.
Interpreting The Results After A Chemical Decontamination Cycle Performed With Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide
The unexpected growth of a biological indicator (BI) at the end of a decontamination cycle is certainly an undesirable and problematic event. What can and should be done at this point?
The Purpose And Application Of ISO 21501-4
ISO 21501 is titled “Determination of particle size distribution – Single particle light interaction methods” and consists of 4 parts. Part 4: Light scattering airborne particle counter for clean spaces applies to handheld, portable and remote airborne particle counters used in cleanrooms.
TSI® AeroTrak® Remote With Pump Particle Counters Installation Considerations
When specifying particle counters for continuous monitoring applications, such as pharmaceutical aseptic manufacturing processes, there are many system design decisions to be made. These will include instrument location and how to get services such as vacuum and communication cabling to that location, as well as protecting the unit from regular cleaning activities and considering easy access to perform ongoing calibration and maintenance.
Highlights On “Equivalent Time” F0 Sterilization
It has been experimentally shown that the reaction of thermal degradation of micro-organisms obeys the laws of a first order chemical reaction (i.e. like a chemical decomposition reaction) in which the reaction rate is proportional, in each moment, only to the amount of product still to be degraded (or decomposed).
