RISK BASED APPROACH TO PARTICLE MONITORING

Airborne particle counters are an important tool used in the environmental monitoring
of pharmaceutical, bio-pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities worldwide. In addition
to determining air quality as part of the facility qualification, particle counters are
required tools used in confirming air cleanliness in critical areas where high-risk
operations are carried out. Non-viable particle counters and their associated systems
are part of a larger environmental monitoring program that includes;

• Non-viable particle monitoring of air
• Viable particle monitoring of air, surfaces and personnel
• Pressure differential monitoring
• Temperature and relative humidity monitoring
