Cleanzone Nanotechnology

CleanZone: Nanotechnology leaders reveal design, development opportunities

BOSTON, Mass.-Contamination control design issues for advanced research facilities, plus opportunities for cooperative nanotechnology development, will be the themes of two featured presentations at the CleanRooms Contamination Control Technology (CCT) Conference & Exhibition, Wednesday, March 23, at The World Trade Center in Boston.

New Iso Standard Defines

New ISO standard defines design criteria for separative devices

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.-In hopes of defining how separative devices differ from a cleanroom, ISO 14644-7, Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments-Part 7: Separative devices (clean air hoods, gloveboxes, isolators, and minienvironments), specifies the minimum requirements for the design, construction, installation, testing, and approval of separative devices for use across a variety of industries.
