Particle Data Collection and Interpretation for ISO Cleanrooms

Facility Monitoring Systems (FMS) (or Environmental Monitoring Systems – EMS, as they are sometimes referred to) gather data from a variety of sensors, including particle, microbial or environmental. Once all the data is gathered it must be correctly interpreted to be useful and effective. This paper addresses how to set up the FMS collection settings to support effective interpretation of the particle data to ensure effective cleanroom monitoring and particle management.
