CLEAN WORKSTATION TESTING
NATA Accredited Laminar Flow Cabinet Testing
Airepure NATA certified technicians are accredited to perform various compliance tests to validate clean workstations and laminar air flow cabinets, as per the following Australian Standards:
- AS 1807.1 – Determination of air velocity and uniformity in clean work stations, laminar flow safety cabinets and pharmaceutical isolators
- AS 1807.5 – Determination of work zone integrity
- AS 1807.6 – Determination of integrity for terminally mounted HEPA Filter installations.
- AS 1807.7 – Determination of integrity for non-terminally mounted HEPA Filter installations.
- AS 1807.8 – Particle Counting in work zone
- AS 1807.15 – Determination of illuminance
- AS 1807.20 – Determination of sound level at installed work stations, safety cabinets and pharmaceutical isolators
- AS 1807.21 – Determination of inward air velocity
- AS 1807.22 – Determination of air barrier containment of laminar flow safety cabinets
- AS 1807.23 – Determination of intensity of radiation from UV lamps
- AS 1807.24 – Determination of recovery times of cleanrooms
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.1 & 14644.3 – Clean rooms and associated controlled environments AS/NZS ISO 14644.1 (Annex B) – Clean room classifications
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.3 – 4.2.2 Airflow test (Procedure B.4)
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.3 – 4.2.3 Air pressure difference test (Procedure B.5)
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.3 – 4.2.4 Installed filter system leakage test (Procedure B.6)
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.3 –Upstream aerosol challenge for installed filter system leakage scan test with an aerosol photometer (Procedure B6.2.2)
- AS/NZS ISO 14644.3 – 4.2.9 Recovery test (Procedure B.12)
At the conclusion of our comprehensive testing, you will receive a detailed analysis report and a NATA endorsed Certificate of Compliance to verify that your clean workstation or laminar air flow cabinet meets Australian Standard specifications, ISO cleanroom classifications and relevant state or industry requirements.
Laminar Flow Hood Testing
Clean workstations and laminar flow hoods provide a controlled work surface through HEPA filtered air that is exhausted across a work surface in a laminar or unidirectional air stream creating a clean work zone.
Controlled workstations and laminar flow cabinets are often used within medical, pharmaceutical, scientific and manufacturing applications, including:
- Aseptic dispensing
- Cell culturing
- Media pouring
- Assembly of electronics and optical components
- Preparation of medical devices
When should Clean Workstations be tested?
- On site, upon installation and/or commissioning, prior to use,
- After any mechanical or electrical maintenance.
- After filter replacement.
- After re-location of clean work stations or safety cabinets.
- Re-tested at least annually
- Re-tested as required by appropriate regulatory authority.
- In special circumstances, such as a significant change in the work program, or where impaired operation is suspected.
