Objectionable Microorganisms – What Are They?

Written by ATSC230@545404 on . Posted in Content Management

What are objectionable microorganisms and why do they matter? An objectionable microorganism is any microorganism that can cause illness, or which will degrade a product and thus cause it to be less effective. This is specifically in relation to the product's intended use and for products that are not required to be sterile. Obviously, sterile products have their own guidelines and must meet their own requirements. Any bacteria that are prone to proliferation would clearly be a concern, since their proliferation could quite easily adversely impact the intended performance of a given product.

Using a Biosafety Cabinet the Right Way

Written by ATSC230@545404 on . Posted in WordPress

A biosafety cabinet, also called a biological safety cabinet (BSC) or microbiological safety cabinet, is an enclosed, ventilated laboratory workspace for safely working with materials that have been contaminated, or potentially contaminated, with pathogens that involve a defined biosafety level. To assure you use a BSC in the right way, here are some things to keep in mind.

What Are GMPs and Why Do They Matter?

Good Manufacturing Practices (or GMPs) are essential for performance in any number of industries, including the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and microelectronics industries. Although things like cleanroom design are important for productivity and to maintain proper standards, that alone isn't enough. At Atlantic Technical Systems, we strive to ensure that we deliver the best products, support, and services to leading-edge companies, so that they can continue to maintain top-notch performance and innovation while leading the charge in dynamic technologies, tools, systems, and services. Good Manufacturing Practices are a big part of that process, and these practices rely on much more than just having the latest equipment.

Maintaining a Cleanroom Through Effective Environmental Monitoring

Written by ATSC230@545404 on . Posted in WordPress

The first clean rooms were created in wartime, say historians. During World War II, American and British industrial manufacturers realized that in order to improve the reliability of the instrumentation used for weapons and tanks, a clean production environment was needed. Some wartime experts say it was during the Manhattan Project, when the first atomic bomb was created, that engineers designed and implemented a basic form of the modern-day, cleanroom HEPA filters, which were used to filter out dust and other pollutants from the production areas.

Tips for Choosing Cleanroom Filters

Written by ATSC230@545404 on . Posted in Content Management

The cleanliness of cleanrooms (like those that exist in the medical or semiconductor industry) is a constant concern for those who are responsible for maintaining the sanitary conditions that are mandatory for performing work in these rooms. Strong bacterial-fighting cleaning supplies can keep walls, floors, equipment, surfaces and other areas clean. Personnel can follow rigid hygiene regimens and wear frequently-laundered protective clothing along with head and mouth coverings, but the real hero of achieving contamination control is the air filtration system. The air filtration system relies heavily on filters that trap harmful contaminants. Experts who sell cleanroom filters & supplies, like Atlantic Technical Systems, know the importance of air filtration filters and would like to tell you about some of the different types of filters which may work best for your particular filtration system.
