Clean Room Microbial Load and Characterization of Microorganisms in the Clean Room Environment

A summary of test methods will be covered, and a review of types of microorganisms that can be present, will be discussed.

A general review of environmental niches where they may be present will be discussed. You will be introduced to the different methods available to conduct testing. Key areas discussed will be Compressed Air, Personnel Monitoring, Surface and Raw Material Monitoring. Recommended selection of sampling sites will be covered. An overview of different types of potential microorganisms that can be encountered will be discussed. A pattern of a Potential Historical Contamination Trend will be discussed.

Why you should attend: The attendee will be given a summary of test methods and, in addition, a brief overview of which methods to select based on scientific documentation. The attendee will be given information related to appropriate and relevant standards in order to assist in the development or update of current monitoring programs. Finally, the attendee will be given a glimpse into the types of microorganisms and their environmental source that can exist in a cleanroom and subsequently, on your product. You should attend in order to ensure your current system is adequate or learn how to develop a new monitoring system.
