Allied Cleanrooms: Today’s Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms

 
  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Mar 17, 2013

Many pharmaceutical manufacturing and research processes require clean, decontaminated environments in order for these processes to be carried out successfully without contamination occurring for these products. These critical environments, or cleanrooms, differ in size, function, and class when it comes to the types of processes and operations being conducted in the workspace.

Clean rooms can have varying designs that feature their own advantages and disadvantages that can measured in aspects such as efficiency, sustainability, functionality, and energy savings. Better designs offer coved surfaces, seamless surfaces, and smooth component transitions are especially popular for maintaining minimal contamination.

Many owners are pursuing modular clean rooms as opposed to metal stud or drywall due to the system’s flexibility. Pharmaceutical product lines can be added and dropped within a moment’s notice, so workspaces must be quickly configured and reconfigured to meet the changing demands of the market. Also, due to the economy, many companies are focusing less on larger projects and relying on flexible clean rooms to handle smaller-scale projects as they come up so that companies can remain nimble and take advantage of changing market trends.

Today’s cleanrooms are primarily built for function and execution, utilizing special HEPA filter systems and clean room monitoring equipment to maintain minimal contamination levels. Companies are also stressing protective, reusable apparel for employees in order to protect from contamination from outside.

Companies prefer green, sustainable clean room designs, equipment, and apparel to remain true to their environmentally friendly image. Also cleanrooms should be efficient on an energy level to save costs and maintenance. Companies not only want to adopt sustainable practices, but they want to cut costs and emphasize efficiency and functionality in their clean rooms so they can continue to be successful in today’s economy.
