The Importance of Cleanroom Particle Testing
Clean room facilities such as Semiconductor and pharmaceutical manufacturers are examples of environments that require extensive and detailed air monitoring and periodic certification. An accurate air monitoring and testing system is the only method for these clean room facilities to maintain that level of cleanliness needed during environmentally sensitive production.
In Jan 2016, ISO introduced an update to standards ISO 14644-1:2015 – Classification of air cleanliness by particle concentration and ISO 14644-2:2015 and monitoring to provide evidence of cleanroom performance related to air cleanliness by particle concentration.
