Ensuring Indoor Air Quality for Medical Facilities and More


Indoor air purity is essential to clean room operations. Once built and in use, follow-on air sampling is necessary to assure continued air quality. While there are many existing systems in operation, most require dedicated, expensive equipment and constant monitoring and maintenance. Scientific Air Solutions offers a low-cost, low-maintenance strategy for assuring high-quality air filtration for clean room applications.

Our process is simple:

  • 1. Sq grids. Using the MB1 MicroBio Air Sampler, sample the air in the middle of each quadrant.
  • 2. Analyze the samples using the MicroBio PC Reporter software and save the data to a spreadsheet.
  • 3. Using our Spatial Mapping Software, analyze the results for the airflow and contamination hot spots within the facility.
  • 4. Based on the results, identify the air filtration requirements necessary for the room volume.
  • 5. Install the necessary filtration equipment and after 48 hours, resample the air quality.

Federal Standard 209E has long been the only definition of clean room classification levels available from a standards organization. FS209E, Airborne Particulate Cleanliness Classes in Clean Rooms and Clean Zones, is from the U.S. General Service Administration and approved for use by all U.S. agencies. In the absence of an international standard, FS209E was broadly used internationally.

Food Processing

With the rapid growth of the ready to eat (RTE) market and the advent of the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, food processors face an increasing need to
Scientific Air Solutions provides systems for sampling air quality and direct remediation using custom-designed, high-flow air filtration equipment.

Food Industry

  • Packaging rooms
  • RTE processing areas
  • Sausage manufacturing
  • Baby food manufacturing
  • Ethylene gas
  • Food processors know that from the time a food crop or animal leaves the farm, through its processing and packaging, to its preparation in the kitchen, and finally to the dinner table, there are numerous points where disease-causing bugs can contaminate our food. Only one outbreak of food contamination and possible injury or death of a consumer can irreversibly harm a business.

Spatial Mapping

The advantages of spatial mapping are that it translates what can be extremely complex results into very reproducible reports that are easily understood by non-scientific personnel.

Spatial maps are a three-dimensional analysis in which two dimensions (X and Y) represent the positions of points on a horizontal plane, and the third (Z) represents data associated with the points. The data can be visualized as elevations above or below the plane.

Data may consist of:

  • 1. Measured numerical values, (colony forming units (CFU/l) air sampling for mold, temperature, moisture content, etc.) or derived numerical values (differences, ratios, probabilities, etc.) associated with fixed points on the horizontal plane and
  • 2. The X, Y-coordinates of the fixed points.

All variables are treated as continuous although CFU/l is discrete. The points are fitted to a three-dimensional surface representing the variable (Z-axis) as a function of position on the X, Y-plane.

The surface can be represented in two dimensions by a contour map, which shows the configuration of the surface by means of isolines (contours) drawn at regular intervals of Z, on the X, Y plane through the origin. Each contour represents the intersection of a horizontal plane with the surface, which means that all points on a contour have the same Z-value.
