A client in the Medical Device Industry produces its aseptic medical devices in a Class 100/ISO 5 environment. They previously had only used biosafety cabinets, but needed the flexibility of a larger space in which to execute aseptic operations. The company also did not know what size processing rooms it would need in the future, and needed the ability to adjust the size of processing booths in the future with minimal construction.
Previous attempts by the client at a Class 100/ISO 5 environment meeting the strict laminar flow criteria required by their product had failed. The company also needed to have each processing booth be completely segregated from the other booths to prevent cross-contamination.
THE PS&S SOLUTION
PS&S designed a clean room that not only met the stringent laminar flow criteria required by the product, but also allowed 4-foot-interval sections of the partition walls between booths to be moved or even removed. This flexible design for the processing booths would ensure access to process utilities, maintain the laminar flow and area classification characteristics, and maintain segregation between booths.
