Fume Hood Testing

FUME HOODS & BIOSAFETY CABINETS

Testing primarily consists of an inflow velocity profile test and smoke containment and visualization tests. These tests should be performed at least annually as part of a labs chemical safety management program.

Biosafety cabinet testing is performed in accordance with NSF 49 and includes:

  • Inflow velocity testing
  • Downflow velocity testing
  • HEPA filter integrity testing
  • Smoke pattern testing
  • Site installation testing

CLEANROOM TESTING

Airadigm Solutions provides cleanroom testing in accordance with USP 797 or client specifications.

Primary cleanroom testing includes:

  • Airflow volume/velocity readings – verifies areas are properly balanced and maintain proper air patterns
  • ACPH (air changes per hour) – ensures proper ventilation rate
  • Non-viable Particle Counts – reports the amount of airborne particulates in the clean zone
  • HEPA filter integrity testing – Ensures filters are not leaking and provide filtration
  • Temp/R.H. – confirms proper HVAC function
