Reduces cleanroom certification and monitoring costs.

Merck Millipore has announced the availability of the APC SmartTouch airborne particle counter for cleanroom monitoring that is fully compliant with the ISO 14644-1 update expected to be released in 2013. The units are factory calibrated in compliance with ISO 21501-4.

The APC SmartTouch is a unique, easy-to-use airborne particle counter, designed to reduce cleanroom certification and monitoring costs while minimizing the likelihood of human sampling errors.

"Environmental monitoring is essential in today's industries," noted Anne Connors, Regional Marketing Manager, Merck Millipore.

Connors continued, "It not only minimizes risks to consumers and producers, it saves time and reduces costs by preventing the release of potentially contaminated products. Our complete portfolio for environmental monitoring solutions includes the APC system for particle counting, active and passive air monitoring as well as surface and personnel monitoring, all of which improve quality, increase safety, and reduce production risks and expenses."

The system offers dual flow rates for cleanroom filter testing and monitoring, thus eliminating the need to invest in multiple instruments and reducing costs associated with routine calibration events.

Equipped with two high-capacity batteries, the instrument is designed for continuous sampling and offers the largest memory capacity on the market.

The award-winning visual representation of sampling locations, including designated sampling points, minimizes risk of human errors.

The instrument's large color touch screen with commonly used icons facilitates easy and intuitive operability.

All required actions start from the main screen, with no need to access sub-menus, increasing operating efficiency and saving time.

The instrument is easy to clean and disinfect, and comes with many accessories including a compressed gas adaptor for high pressures.
