Contamination Controls for Cleanroom Environments
Effective contamination and cross contamination control in cleanroom environments must take place on several levels to assure product or process integrity. From standard operating procedures(SOP) to gowning and de-gowning protocols the opportunities for contamination of a cleanroom process or product can happen at the procedural level, design of the HVAC systems, pressurization, and airflow, or process flow and personnel flow levels.
In sterile cleanroom processes contamination will lead to down time and product loss while the cleanroom zone is shut down for decontamination procedures. It is far less costly to invest in protocols and mechanisms that will prevent contamination than to remedy it after the fact.
Sources of Cleanroom Contamination:
Cleanroom design for sterile and non sterile cleanroom environments varies greatly in cost, design principles, and construction methods. The importance of differentiating between the two methods and designing and constructing appropriately will mitigate all chances of contamination from the cleanroom systems.
