Westminster, Maryland (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Strouse recently had their cleanroom certified to ISO 7 standards by Atlantic Technical Systems. The cleanroom at Strouse has been operating at this ISO 7 level for several years and now has the official certification needed for demanding medical and electronics projects that require more precision and therefore follow very strict manufacturing guidelines.
This certification, also known as Class 10,000, denotes a maximum particle count threshold that must not be exceeded. At ISO 7 standards there must not be greater than 352,000 air particles per cubic meter. The cleanroom was inspected for several days collecting air quality samples from all over the room. After going through rigorous testing the samples came back clean and Strouse was awarded ISO 7 Cleanroom Certification.
Manufacturing in the medical and electronics industries must be closely monitored for cleanliness. If adhesives are exposed to airborne particles they could promote the growth of bacteria and mold. This could shorten the shelf life of the materials as adhesion levels change. Medical products that are often applied directly to the skin or open wounds must be uncontaminated. With the ISO 7 Cleanroom Certification Strouse can certify that the products manufactured in the cleanroom meet this standard.
Over a year ago, Strouse upgraded their cleanroom by installing humidity controls with an industrial dehumidifier. These efforts to continually invest in the company and new technologies are part of Strouse’s vision.
