Keep your laboratories the safe places they are meant to be. Meet critical safety and reliability requirements and mitigate risk with Camfil’s extensive range of biosafety solutions..
In sensitive environments like pharmaceutical and biopharma facilities with high biosafety levels, both people and the environment risk higher exposure to toxic materials. You need to protect researchers from contamination and prevent microorganisms from coming out of these environments. It could be a matter of life or death.
In the life sciences, pharmaceutical and biopharma facilities have their own special air quality requirements with one thing in common: keeping workers, equipment and processes safe.
Biosafety labs are specialised research labs where scientists study infectious agents, bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxic substances. A few uncollected particles or gas molecules in contaminated air can pose a serious threat out of these labs. It is critical for your air filtration system to contain all of these potentially harmful airborne pathogens.
The necessary protection is defined by four biosafety levels (BSLs). As the BSL increases, there are more requirements and constraints added to the safety precautions that must be followed. The materials observed in highest BSL4 labs can cause severe – or fatal – untreatable diseases in humans.
In all cases, filtration of the air both coming in and going out of the lab is crucial. Incoming supply air must be clean to prevent contamination of work that is being conducted. And exhaust air that exits the lab needs to be filtered to keep harmful or deadly substances and organisms from harming people and the outside environment.
Camfil offers dedicated containment solutions to provide even the highest level of safety. Many of the BSL-4 labs around the world currently rely on our containment solutions.
So contact our experts to find out how to reduce the potential spread of disease through the air handling systems of biosafety labs and other pharma facilities. In addition to particle removal efficiency, you’ll also get solutions with a long lifespan, reduced environmental impact and low total cost of ownership.
It's imperative to protect people and the environment from highly dangerous biological, chemical or radioactive risks during research or production operation, especially within defense, the military and university labs.
Controlled environments must protect critical processes and personnel. A high level of air cleanliness is essential to protect products and to contain hazardous compounds. High-quality filtration systems help ensure regulatory compliance and maintain efficient operations.
Protect people, processes, products and equipment while keeping maintenance and energy costs low by keeping air handling units unclogged.
Nowhere are process cleanliness and air quality more critical than in in-vitro fertilisation labs, where studies show a direct relationship between clean air and procedural success.
CleanSeal Exhaust Integrity is the next generation of exhaust HEPA housings for sensitive processes. This premium range is designed to ensure a safe operation with critical or hazardous substances. Compliant for ISO14644 testing and allows you to easily inject aerosol together with in situ filter validation scan.Life science and healthcare
HEPA filtration is required in a range of different Industries from Pharmaceuticals, Hospitals, Microelectronics and even the Food and Beverage Industry. Learn about the changing trends in HEPA filtration requirements, How HEPA filtration has advanced over the last number of years and how to identify and reduce the associated costs to your clean air requirementsAir quality Life science and healthcare
Filtration is a physical, biological or chemical operation that separates solid matter – and sometimes fluids – from a mixture with a filter medium that has a complex structure through which only certain elements of the air (or fluid) can pass.
Clean air plays an imperative role in the life science, healthcare and pharmaceutical process chain. Many studies have inferred that in moderate levels of air pollution the damage to human health is irreversible. In the life science industry where biological life or living organisms are at play, it is vital to maintain utmost hygiene along with superior indoor air quality. Camfil’s high-efficiency air filtration solutions are used by many global life science industry specialists in cleanrooms, production areas, and laboratories, including many global biosafety labs around the world.
Some processes are more sensitive than others. If you work in the food and beverage or life science industries, you know how tough the demands on clean air are. To be sure you have the right filter, look for the ProSafe symbol.
