Particle Counting Sample Tubing Guidance and Best Practices

Airborne Particle Counters are used for a variety of purposes in pharmaceutical cleanrooms for such applications:

  • Filter testing
  • Cleanroom certification and testing
  • Isolator certification and testing
  • Cleanroom and clean device monitoring in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facilities

One area of Particle Counting technology that needs some updated attention is guidance on sampling tubing and best practices. This paper addresses issues around particle losses in sample tubing and how to mitigate against particle losses. First of all particles do not get lost. They accumulate inside the tubing and adhere to bends and kinks that may be present in the tubing.
