A room in which the concentration of airborne particles is controlled, and which is constructed and used in manner to minimize the introduction, generation, and retention of particles inside the room and in which other relevant parameters, e.g. temperature, humidity, and pressure, are controlled as necessary. (ISO standard 14644-1)


Cleanroom technology is used to control contamination of products by airborne

particles, chemicals, and biological organisms in production and in laboratories. Cleanrooms protect both the product and the personnel.


Cleanrooms are typically used in:


  • electronics/optics
  • semiconductor
  • pharmaceutical
  • biotechnology
  • food and drink
  • pharmacy/hospitals
  • aerospaceCleanroom technology contains:


  • cleanroom design and construction
  • construction materials
  • HVAC systems
  • cleanroom testing, validations
  • monitoring the room conditions
  • cleanroom disciplines
  • cleanroom cleaning and equipment
