Going 'Paperless' – Save Time And Improve Data Integrity: Cleanroom Environmental Monitoring
The intensely manual practices of cleanroom classification and routine monitoring are time-consuming and prone to data errors. Particle counter performance and accuracy can vary widely, leading to inaccurate particle counting data. By Tony Harrison, UK Subject Matter Expert to ISO Technical Committee 209 Working Group
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Reducing Laboratory Fume Hood Energy Consumption
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
Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Fume Hood
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.
Concentrating Heat Sensitive Samples Without Degradation
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
Containment Capabilities Of A Class II, Type A2 BSC Using A Chemo Pad On The Worksurface
The Test Objective is to study the containment capabilities of the BSC when using a chemo plus prep mat on the worksurface. A NuAire model NU-425-500 Class II, Type A2 BSC was set to its nominal average velocity airflow of 70 fpm downflow and 105 fpm inflow, and Personnel protection tests followed NSF/ANSI 49:2002 at nominal airflows using a chemo prep plus mat (10-3/8" x 16-1/2" size) on the worksurface in different configurations.
The Benefits Of Isolator And Aseptic Processing
Isolators have been around the Pharmaceutical Industry since the early 1980s and in the Nuclear Industry (glovebox technology) since the 1950s. The intent of isolators is to create an airtight barrier or enclosure around a piece of equipment or process which provides absolute separation between the operator and product. By Gary Partington
