Increasing Productivity by Leveraging Single Use Technology in Air Monitoring 4/30/2019

The impact of new and alternative monitoring technologies on labor costs in the laboratory and in manufacturing can be significant. The practice of single-use air sampling techniques to increase productivity results in reduced OOS/OOT, costs of investigation and regulatory interactions. We will look at the advantages of single-use technologies to mitigate and remove the risk of air sampling close to critical control points, and to decrease costs of cleaning, sanitization, and sterilization of reusable equipment.


The benefits of single-use air sampling techniques include:

  • Reduced exposure to operator handling, thus reducing risks of false positives
  • The plates are sterile (gamma irradiated), triple bagged, and are validated for continuous active air sampling for up to 2 hours at 25 LPM
  • Plates can be stored at room temperature for up to one year from the date of manufacture
  • Ease of use
  • Cost savings (time and labor) due to the elimination of cleaning and sanitization of the reusable impactor heads
