Thanks for your support!
If anyone had doubts about the strength and vitality of the contamination control industry, they should surely have been put to rest by the tremendous turnout and energy generated by the CleanRooms Europe Conference & Exhibition held last month in Stuttgart, Germany.
Gloves are an essential component of cleanroom apparel. They not only protect personnel from hazardous materials but also can be the first line of defense in preventing the contamination of clean environments.
Certification of Class II biological safety cabinets
With proper field certification and commissioning practices, BSCs will keep hazardous materials away from personnel and ensure environmental cleanliness.
Getting the bugs out
An effective environment monitoring program begins with interpreting applicable international standards.
Better tools for bioprocessing
Advanced filtration technologies are supplanting many traditional separation and purification techniques to meet demand for efficient, cost-effective, and high-yield industrial bioprocesses.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has appointed Janet Woodcock, M.D., as director of the agency’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
Semiconductor Mask Doubl
Semiconductor mask double take
Two recent announcements regarding semiconductor photomasks are good news for the industry, with one being a contamination-related breakthrough.
Live Cells Detect Food B
Live cells detect food-borne pathogens and toxins
Purdue University researchers have reported a new technology for potential biosafety and food safety applications that can simultaneously screen thousands of samples of food or water for several dangerous food-borne pathogens within a couple of hours.
