Microbiological monitoring of the air is essential in facilities where pharmaceuticals and medical devices are manufactured. International standards have been published for biocontamination control in cleanrooms and controlled environment (ISO 14698). This monitoring of microbials is also important in many other sectors, such as hospitals, food factories, aerospace, electronics, etc.
Thus, monitoring biological contamination is a key component of an environmental monitoring system in many industries. Acumen can assist you with active air sampling via products produced by Bioscience International and TSI.
SAS (Surface Air System) Air Samplers
The world's #1 best-selling air sampler line is best in class & fully compliant with all relevant national and international standards for environmental air monitoring - including those set by: ISO 14698, EU GLP-GMP, EN45001, ACGIH, USP 1116, and USP 797. The heads allow 100% sampling efficiency down to 1 micron, & the air samplers are so durable that 99% of the SAS units sold since 1979 in North America are still in use today. They work with all standard 55m contact plates & 90mm petri dishes, so you aren't locked in to using proprietary media.
