Clean room certification FAQ’s
Q: How often do I need to get my room tested?
A: This depends upon your quality assurance procedures. Most people test annually. Some industries like pharmaceutical manufacturing do clean room testing and certification every 6 months. Any time you have reasonable cause: for example you just completed an area expansion or there was a contamination event .
Q: Why call American Cleanroom Systems to do my cleanroom certification?
A: Our engineers and technicians are experts on cleanroom testing and certification. Our equipment is calibrated annually with NIST traceable standards. We don’t use hand held particle counters. Our benchtop equipment ensures you get accurate results.
Q: I am not located in Southern California. Will you come test my cleanroom?
A: Yes – we travel nationally and to Mexico to do cleanroom certifications.
Q: How soon can you come to test and certify my cleanroom?
A: We will do our best to accommodate you.
Q: How long will the test take?
A: It depends how many rooms we need to test. We take a minimum of 10 particle counts per room, so budget at least 20 minutes per room.
Q: How can I prepare the room to get the best results?
A: The room should be thoroughly wiped down before testing. If possible we recommend that the room be left vacant for at least 2 hours before the test. No operators should be working in the vicinity of the area being tested.
Q: What will I get in my cleanroom certification test report?
A: The report will describe the room(s) being tested, equipment used to test the room, and test results. In addition, the cleanroom certification report will include recommendations on needed maintenance or procedures to help maintain the room at desired class.
Q: Do you certify laminar flow benches and fume hoods?
A: We only certify cleanrooms. We do not certify equipment.
Q: Do you do FDA certification?
A: American Cleanroom Systems does particle testing to certify cleanroom class. We do not do FDA certification or validation.
