In this final blog of our recent basic particle knowledge series, we look at Statistical Process Control (SPC) and how it can be used to prevent particle excursion events before they happen.
Conventional approaches to contamination control are changing. They are being driven by the need to anticipate contamination events, rather than simply react to them, and new regulations are supporting this shift in thinking. Defining a Contamination Control Strategy (CCS) is unique for each process and requires an intimate understanding of both the process and how to implement an effective strategy. This blog series will go into depth on both topics.
Multiple mechanisms emerge when sample tubing of any length is placed between the sampling location and the particle counter inlet probe. By standardizing set-up variation where possible, these mechanisms are further classified into their principal loss mechanisms.
Congratulations to our particle counter service team for receiving an A rating for the second year in a row from Samsung in Korea. Samsung sets very high standards for their vendors and being recognized by them with an A rating is a huge accomplishment. Our entire team in Korea has worked as a partner with […]
In this video interview, the team from AUSTAR UK discuss why and how they worked with Particle Measuring Systems’ (PMS) exclusive UK distributor, EMS Particle Solutions, to provide an AUSTAR sterility test isolator customer with a complete viable and non viable particle counting solution using PMS instrumentation and equipment.

PMS discusses the air sampling conditions required to compare particle data. What does isoaxial and isokinetic flow mean for a cleanroom particle counter, and how does it impact the comparison of counts?
PMS outlines the basic methods of reporting data from aerosol particle counters and understanding how to appropriately apply data conversions.
