In its third year, the Controlled Environments Readers’ Choice Awards highlight the cleanroom equipment and suppliers that readers judge most effective and trusted in their work. Cleanroom equipment and product suppliers were invited to submit their products for these prestigious awards. Winners in each category were chosen based on a voting survey sent to a select group of Controlled Environment Readers.
Best Monitoring Instrumentation Product: Active-Count100H Microbiological Sampler
Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions offers its Active-Count 100H Microbiological Sampler, which has both a HEPA filtered exhaust and a removable / autoclavable petri dish holder to solve cross-contamination issues. The HEPA filtered exhaust ensures that a minimum of 99.97 percent of particles 0.3 micron and larger will be filtered out prior to exiting the sampler. The patent pending removable / autoclavable petri dish holder allows for easier and more effective cleaning of the internal sampling area. The system is ISO 14698 compliant with a d50 collection efficiency of 1 micron and exhaust ports designed to avoid re-aspiration of sampled air. With a 316L stainless steel enclosure, sampling head, and dust cover as well as HEPA filtered exhaust, the system will not contaminate critical environments. More
