Pathology Laboratories Cleanrooms

A Cleanroom is a containment area in which efforts are made to adjust the air treatment and filtration systems so that the environment inside the room prevents biological agents from causing contamination outside of the room. Pathological laboratories require Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments to be set up, in which we can control the concentration of airborne particles, as well as temperature, humidity and pressure.

Most pathology labs vary between ISO levels, depending on the specific research criteria of your organisation. Total Clean Air are leading builders of high-quality pathology laboratory Cleanrooms.

Our bespoke Cleanrooms create classified environments to protect processes from harmful airborne contamination, thereby reducing failure rates and helping organisations get it right first time. We can manufacture a Cleanroom of a few square metres to hundreds of square meters, which can be installed around existing machinery.

Whether it’s a pathology laboratory, a contract research group or similar organisation, Total Clean Air has the Cleanroom solution ideal for your requirements. We have numerous Cleanroom options available, making it easy to create an ideal controlled environment in which to perform your research studies, experiments, analysis, clinical trials, and laboratory testing.

We offer modular Cleanroom solutions to accommodate requirements above and beyond the norm, as well as to meet your facility cleanliness standards. Our modular Cleanroom design means that you can grow your production area as demand increases. They are also less expensive than standard construction and can be installed, modified, and even relocated with minimal expense and downtime.

Modular Cleanroom Benefits

  • Modular Construction
  • Quick Assembly Time
  • Versatility
  • Reconfiguration
  • Airflow Control
  • Inexpensive Modifications

Why Pathology Laboratories Need Cleanrooms

Many laboratory activities can only take place within a Cleanroom.  These Cleanrooms must meet regulatory requirements and international standards, such as ISO 14644.  This standard specifies the air quality required for different Cleanroom classifications. At Total Clean Air, our Cleanroom designers determine the number of air changes, filters and the finish of the room required to achieve that air quality. Laboratories and cryogenic storage facilities must be compliant to a set of stringent rules and working conditions, which are only attainable in a Cleanroom.

Our team of professionals at Total Clean Air can help you achieve compliance cost-effectively and can prevent costly re-work on areas that turn out to be non-compliant when designed by inexperienced architects and builders. Different corporations and non-profit or academic institutions require Cleanrooms designed specifically for laboratory or research facilities to avoid contaminations. Total Clean Air offers an integrated wall, floor and ceiling surface solution, perfectly suited to your needs.

Basic Requirements for Pathology Laboratories Cleanrooms

All equipment used in a Cleanroom – as well as any other necessary materials – are designed to have low capability for environmental contamination. Only special buckets and mops are used in a Cleanroom. Common materials such as fabrics, pencils and paper produced from natural fibres are usually excluded and substitutes used.

Because of the strict environmental conditions required of a laboratory Cleanroom, Total Clean Air customises your laboratory Cleanroom to meet your exact requirements. We can incorporate gowning rooms, airlocks, air showers, material transfer enclosures, batch mixing areas, blending labs (and more) into the pathology laboratories Cleanroom structure to ensure a complete solution is provided. Our team of professionals will work with your staff to engineer something to your exact specifications.

We offer numerous wall finishes that cater to different lab and research needs. Our standard vinyl wall finish is easy to clean, non-shedding and ideal for most pathology laboratories Cleanrooms. We also offer an FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) finish, which provides excellent chemical resistance for sterile wipe downs. Our surface finishes are manufactured from rigid PVC and are easy to clean and impervious to water, chemicals and bio-hazardous materials.

Because all joints and junctures are heat welded to create one continuous monolithic surface, sterile wipe downs are easy to achieve and help ensure your Cleanroom meets or exceeds all industry standards and that your results are never compromised due to environmental contamination.

Some things to keep in mind for personnel and handlers in charge of pathology laboratory Cleanrooms include:

  • Proper attire and dressing anteroom
  • Regulating the storage of glassware and containers
  • Preventing or controlling the cutting, tearing or storage of cardboard, debris, etc.
  • Cleaning the room and production equipment per written procedure
  • Cleaning of work surfaces and chairs
  • Selecting correct furniture and eliminating all nonessential equipment
  • Controlling room air quality (number of particulates, pressure, velocity, and exchange rate)
  • Eliminating electrostatic charges by controlling work surface composition or grounding
  • Ensuring cleanliness of raw materials, components and tools
  • Controlling the purity, sterility, and non­pyrogenicity of process water
  • Maintaining profilers, HEPA filters, and electrostatic precipitators
  • Controlled use of – and entry into – controlled areas
  • Prohibiting eating, drinking, smoking or gum chewing
  • Preventing use of lead pencils
