  5. How Do I Choose the Right Casters for Cleanroom Carts or Chairs?

    How Do I Choose the Right Casters for Cleanroom Carts or Chairs?

    If you've ever inspected the feet and casters of typical office equipment, most are inhabited by a fine layer of dust, organic matter, and detritus. In most environments, objects that come in contact with the floor are expected to be dirty. In cleanrooms, maintaining ultra clean flooring is a key battleground in preventing the continual spread of contamination from one workstation or work area to another.

    The appropriate choice of cleanroom chairs, carts, ladders and other free-standing equipment will ultimately affect the lifespan, ease of cleaning, and overall aesthetic of a cleanroom floor. Casters and leveling feet are particularly important for cleanroom floors with sensitive antibacterial or ESD surface coatings.

  9. Cost-Effective Environmental Monitoring for CGMP and GLP Requirements

    Cost-Effective Environmental Monitoring for CGMP and GLP Requirements

    Cleanroom monitoring systems are quickly becoming a feature expected for all modular cleanrooms, especially given the cGMP and GLP requirements for environmental reporting.

    Not every facility requires arrays of sensors for temperature, particulate, humidity, and pressure differential. The cost of a monitoring system is derived from several factors including the number and type of sensors, sampling rate, instrument sensitivity, and any value-added features such as WIFI, alarms, and automation of feedback controls. Determining the best option requires balancing a facility's needs today with the possibility of growth and expansion years down the line.
