Cleanroom

A cleanroom or critical environment is a controlled space which is designed and maintained to reduce particulate and microbial contamination.

Additionally, the environmental parameters within the space are tightly controlled such as temperature, humidity, and differential pressures. A cleanroom facility manages these tight parameters by using a specially designed HVAC system that can modulate in response to environmental inputs and has layers of air filters, including HEPA filters, installed to remove particles from the air.

A cleanroom environment is required in industries which produce products for human use such as pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, and healthcare.

ISO 5 is a super clean cleanroom classification.

A cleanroom must have less than 3,520 particles >0.5 micron per cubic meter and 250-300 HEPA filtered air changes per hour. The equivalent FED standard is class 100 or 100 particles per cubic foot. Common applications are semiconductor manufacturing and pharmaceutical filling rooms.

ISO 7 is a common clean cleanroom classification.

A cleanroom must have less than 352,000 particles >0.5 micron per cubic meter and 60 HEPA filtered air changes per hour. The equivalent FED standard is class 10.000 or 10,000 particles per cubic foot. Common applications are pharmacy USP800 compounding rooms, electronics manufacturing and medical device manufacturing.

Grade A is equivalent to class 100 or ISO 5
Grade B is also equivalent to class 100 or ISO 5
Grade C is equivalent to class 10,000 or ISO 7
Grade D is equivalent to class 100,000 or ISO 8

A class 100 cleanroom has 100 particles or less per cubic foot. By comparison your typical office space has between 500,000 and 1 million particles per cubic foot. Cleanrooms come in different classes from class 100 to 100,000.

Medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturing requires sterile environments to produce their products.

Cleanrooms provide this sterile super clean manufacturing space which reduces the chance of contamination getting in your medicine.

Semiconductor manufacturers produce devices with ultra small super dense features.

Examples are computer chips for your cell phone or PC. If contamination were to get on the chip during manufacturing, they would not work.

Biodecontamination

Ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (iHP) is a relatively new technology that is being applied for surface decontamination as an alternative to conventional vapor phase hydrogen peroxide and other agents used for bio-decontamination (e.g., gaseous forms of chlorine dioxide, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde, etc.)

iHP utilizes a lower concentration form of hydrogen peroxide compared to traditional VHP (7% v. 30-35%). This means that iHP is safer to use in terms of safety and for material compatibility as it does not have as much corrosive potential as VHP but is still as efficacious due to the hydrogen peroxide being ionized and hydroxyl radicals being formed.
