Anaerobic environmental monitoring is not a routine process, but is occasionally performed to detect potential anaerobic microbial contaminants, particularly those related to contamination by personnel.
You’re going to have a high stream of data if you want a fast response to contamination events. Decide how long you want your samples to run to determine how fast. One minute samples are an immediate indicator that aren’t completely overwhelming…
As the aerosol particle counting experts, Particle Measuring Systems recommends against the use of 0.1 CFM particle counters to sample and monitor 5.0 μm particles. Instead, use a 1.0 CFM flowrate model like the Lasair® III particle counter to provide an adequate sample for the detection of 5.0 μm particles.
Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide is a strong oxidizing agent and has been proven as a sterilizing agent in enclosed filling isolators for many years. As the increase of applications using isolators increases, so does the need for robust sensors capable of withstanding these environments. IsoAir® Pro Remote Particle Sensors contain an internal flow path that is designed to be resistant to the harmful effects of VHP.
…any loss can be deemed to be unacceptable. However, let us look at the uncertainties, the acceptable errors for particle counting…
The transition to a continuous monitoring system now continuously demonstrates adherence to control parameters (which you use to define alert and action levels), and only instances…
…current good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and how they can be applied to a continuous monitoring system installed within a facility. Quality and Production teams can then establish new monitoring understandings and harmonize with standards.
Regardless of manufacturer, the technology behind these devices uses the principle of light scattering. In this blog, we look inside the equipment to see how particle counters work.
…inside a cleanroom we could measure flakes of skin, small pieces of silicon or metal, or fungal spores… Most particles are non-uniform in structure, and this poses a question: How is the size qualified?
Paul Hartigan sits down with Blu Buquoy, both of Particle Measuring Systems (PMS), to discuss the new Lasair Pro airborne particle counter. Topics covered include an overview of the instrument and its features, how it meets the most up to date industry needs including regulatory requirements for calibration and data integrity, why the product was built and more.
