Allometrics brings the experience, education and integrity required to ensure that your products are free of contamination and your employees are kept safe. Continual education is of great importance to Allometrics. We are members of IEST and CETA. We also proudly employee NSF certifiers.
We are factory authorized to service Baker, Nuaire, Thermo (Forma), Germfree, Labconco equipment.
Performed on a scheduled service basis. Each unit receives a thorough inspection followed by preventative maintenance measures. The unit is then tested to ensure performance to established specifications. Nationally recognized standards are employed for testing and certification purposes as required. Quality documentation is provided and tailored to meet specific customer reporting needs.
We will work with you to develop a sampling plan based upon your facility’s Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSP’s) risk level, size, orientation of the compounding area and the environmental controls utilized.
When should viable sampling be performed?
Upon commissioning of rooms and/or environmental controls and at least semi-annually thereafter, When environmental controls are relocated, or; After facility renovation(s)
How do we collect viable air and surface samples?
Settling plates are no longer acceptable. We use USP797 compliant volumetric air sampling devices and media contact plates. Surface samples are collected manually on growth plates. All samples are tested by a lab with 35 years of experience with the pharmaceutical manufacturing and pharmacy industries.
We offer comprehensive environmental testing programs to ensure client USP<797> regulatory compliance. Our factory trained technicians will certify that your primary engineering controls (laminar airflow workbenches, biological safety cabinets, barrier isolators) operate as designed, according to industry standards, and achieve ISO Class 5 air environment. That buffer and ante-areas operate according to USP 797 standards. This includes certifying that these areas achieve the correct ISO-classified air environment, air changes per hour, pressure, and pressure differential.Find out more
