How Clean is Your Laboratory Air?
Research Instruments are proud to unveil their new Particle Counter for IVF Labs that can quickly and accurately assess particle counts.
IVF Laboratories rely on air filtration to protect the gametes from contamination during critical procedures. An independent inspection is used to certify that the air system is working, typically once per year. Acknowledging that this is inadequate, many laboratories are now installing expensive continuous monitoring systems at fixed positions. The RI Particle Counter from Research Instruments, gives the same level of protection at a fraction of the cost. This enables far more laboratories to consider employing this form of monitoring than ever before.
Why use a particle counter?
The Particle Counter can be used to measure flow hoods, clean rooms, and HEPA filtered incubators. The unit provides an on the spot check that your air quality is up to scratch. Providing you with immediate verification that your air filtration system is producing Grade A air to EU GGMP standards. The particle counter is ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand. It is rugged and dependable, and provides accurate recording at a great price.
How is it used?
Simply hold or place it in the test environment and start the test. The HandiLaz? Mini samples the air for a user defined time, counting the particles within three sizes ranges (0.3um, 0.5um and 5um). At the end of the test the results are displayed on the screen in units that can be immediately compared with the pass and fail criteria given in the standards (ISO or EU GGMP).
The HandiLaz? Mini interfaces directly by cable to an optional printer or PC.
Bill Brown, Managing director of Research Instruments said, ?The Particle Counter is now an essential piece of equipment to ensure your lab meets the standards to carry out IVF procedures. Alongside our VOC Meter, pH meter, Hygiene Monitor and IVF thermometer, Research Instruments can now offer the complete solution for laboratory QC.?
