CleanRooms Europe: A look ahead

Meg Villeneuve

FRANKFURT, GERMANY—For the first time at CleanRooms Europe 2001 (June 26-28), representatives from M + W Zander will discuss FDA compliant cleanroom ventilation and newcomer GB Pharmatechniq will look at the future cleanroom needs of the pharmaceutical, biological and genetic engineering markets.

“Design requirements for ventilation systems are unique where cleanroom applications are concerned, and they must comply with regulatory standards,” says Thomas Korneli of M + W, who will be presenting the session. “In addition to the prevention of contamination between cleanroom areas, ventilation systems perform other tasks as well. It's based on those tasks that companies must design a system that is right for their own needs, while following FDA guidelines.”

GB says it sees protected facility areas and work stations as a future trend for R&D , technology and production facilities.

End users can visit with more than 140 exhibiting suppliers at CleanRooms Europe, which takes place from June 26-28 in Frankfurt.

“Emphasis is being placed upon achieving the highest possible degree of protection where it is actually required,” says Manfred Wichmann of GB. “From a single cleanroom zone workstation to a complete house-in-house system with airlocks, air-conditioning and sterilization, MSR solutions are adapted and created as individual components or turnkey systems.”

Whether you are a cleanroom operator or project manager in the pharmaceutical industry, validation of tools and processes is an ever-growing concern. Offering a new session on validation techniques this year will be Shield Medicare.

Shield will discuss standards in validating cleaning, answering questions such as: What testing is required? What are the health and safety implications of the products being used? How are the agents manufactured and what criteria should the manufacturer meet?

Rounding off the list of new presenters is 13-year Purafil veteran, Chris Muller. Muller will discuss evaluating the effectiveness of AMC control. “Attendees will learn AMC control strategies for semiconductor fabs; chemical filtration application areas; various types of chemical filters and filtration systems; reactivity monitoring techniques; and evaluating AMC control strategies,” Muller says.

The show runs from June 26-28, 2001 and will be held in Frankfurt, Germany at the Frankfurt Fairgrounds. Attendees—cleanroom technology users in the semiconductor, microelectronics, life sciences markets—will rub elbows with more than 140 exhibiting cleanroom technology suppliers keyed into the European market.

Conference sessions will commence on Tuesday, June 26 and end on Wednesday, June 27. The theme for this year's tutorial sessions is compliance and validation throughout industries utilizing cleanroom technologies.
