Cleanrooms are designed and operated to provide cleanliness, control, and/or isolation of processes. They are typically used in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and nanotechnology industries.
Contamination control and access restriction are ways to protect products or processes in a cleanroom environment.
Cleanroom classifications are by cleanliness level and represent the level of measured contamination. The classifications are:
|ISO Std 1446||Federal Std 209e||Biosafety Level|
|(ISO 3)||Class 1|
|(ISO 4)||Class 10||BSL1|
|(ISO 5)||Class 100||BSL2|
|(ISO 6)||Class 1,000||BSL3|
|(ISO 7)||Class 10,000|
|(ISO 8)||Class 100,000|
