The challenges of cleanroom design, construction, and certification focus on minimizing contamination risks.
Letter from the Editor - January 2014
The wrong combination of glove and application can cause contamination and even can result in injury if the glove is not resistant to the chemicals being used.
Gowning procedures may vary depending upon cleanroom applications; however the gowning sequence is basically similar to the following steps.
Selecting the right pressure monitor for your space is just as important as the job that the pressure monitor actually does.
Cleaning and extraction have many similarities; however, the goals and potential “tripping points” are different.
Cleaning and extraction have many similarities; however, the goals and potential “tripping points” are different. Analysis of the extract may involve determining levels of particulates, or of non-volatile residue. Should you worry yourself to distraction over extraction?
Local vacuum networks save space while reducing energy consumption and heat load.
How to use balances to perform accurate measurements.
My company will be constructing a new clean manufacturing facility. Where do I start?
The 78,000 ft2 facility serves as the university’s focal point for work in the emerging field of nanotechnology.
Critical environments require assurances that the room’s pressure is properly monitored and maintained.
In the semiconductor fabrication process, hazardous and toxic gases are used in a number of manufacturing steps. While high-pressure cylinders are often used to store and deliver the gases today, they pose concerns. Use of high pressure cylinders for delivery of toxic gases can lead to accidental gas leaks and dangerous situations, which can shut down manufacturing facilities or, worse, be fatal.
Fast track, priority, accelerated, breakthrough: new FDA programs aim to expedite innovative drug therapies to market.
Construction costs continue to show an increase.
