Pharmaceutical and medical grade cleanroom several features that make them unique from prototypical cleanroom doors. Particularly, Terra Universal is one of the few cleanroom construction companies that self-manufacture doors specifically for installation in controlled environments, cleanrooms, and bio-pharmaceutical labs. Terra can provide a wide range of outfitting and engineering services to support virtually any facility or compliance requirement. When comparing hygienic versus sterile cleanroom door styles, each model and product family is designed to meet a specific fit and function.
With 45 years of experience and thousands of active cleanroom installations across the world, Terra is committed to helping its customers understand what they'll need to own and operate a cleanroom. Let's skip the guesswork, and discuss some of the most common questions about buying and owning a cleanroom.
Cleanroom garments are an essential component of any controlled environment, as they help to protect both the product and the individual wearing them from contamination. ISO-rated cleanroom garments are a specific type of protective clothing that meet the standards set forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Cleanroom selection is a critical decision for a company. The wrong design choice may result in procedural inefficiency, cross contamination, or certification failure. Let’s discuss common questions Terra customers have when specifying and purchasing a cleanroom.
Terra customers often inquire about what type of steel is suggested for their product. In making a decision, one should also consider that not all 304 and 316 stainless steel is built to equal standards.
In the USA, the leading codes of standard practices for steel manufacturing are issued by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification
Terra Universal manufactures a vast selection of stainless steel products for cleanrooms, hospitals, laboratories, and other controlled environments. Among these steel-constructed products, you'll find tables, workstations, glove boxes, pass-throughs, doors, and more.
Where do most cleanroom contaminants come from? Simple: the cleanroom staff brings them in. With enough foot traffic, outside contaminants can easily migrate into your cleanroom — but the right safeguards will help your facility stay clean and compliant.
Welcome to Terra’s multi-part educational series on critical environments. Let's discuss selecting the right cleanroom protocols and procedures for your application.
Additionally, we’ll outline proper gowning procedures, as well as the Terra Universal equipment you’ll need to protect your room from cross-contamination.
Medical-grade filters and medical filtration systems include a HEPA filtration design that is designed to yield breathable, non-contaminated air. Unlike industrial or equipment-based filters for vacuums and equipment pumps, medical-grade filters are designed to reintroduce and recirculate extremely clean air back into the environment. Importantly, medical-grade filters must also prevent contamination that is introduced from the filter itself. Thus medical-grade filters do not use fiberglass filter media, which can introduce microscopic fiberglass particles into the air stream.
Most respiratory infections are caused by respiratory viruses, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality for humans. Respiratory viruses are transmitted through by four major transmission modes:
