    Cleanrooms are the fabric within which most pharmaceutical processing takes place, yet not all pharmaceutical microbiologist are familiar with how they work and the contribution they make to minimising contamination.

    In addition there are several different cleanroom standards and making sense of these and drawing comparisons can be changing.

    This Pharmig guide:

    • Describes the contamination control features of cleanrooms.
    • Explain the different cleanroom standards and how they compare.
    • Provides detail of the recently updated ISO 14644 standard (Parts 1 and 2).
    • Describes the different test methods for cleanrooms, like particle classification; pressure monitoring; air change rates and so on.

    The guide is useful for microbiologists and cleanroom managers – helping to link engineering principles for microbiologists.
