Typically, all clean bench, isolators, and glove boxes are tested and certified semi-annually while testing the entire cleanroom. Recognizing USP-797, all sterile compounding Pharmacy cleanrooms and devices should also be recertified semi-annually.
Cleanroom Testing and Certification
ETB offers cleanroom testing and certification for pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and biotechnology facilities. Cleanroom testing consists of many variables, including HEPA filter integrity testing, airborne particle counting, airflow and room pressurization testing, and microbial viable sampling. We provide an array of services to meet all of your certification needs, and all testing is performed in compliance with the latest ISO and IEST standards. Continuing education and training remains at the forefront, and our mission is to provide our clients and community with the highest level of quality and workmanship.

Fume Hood Testing and Certification
All chemical fume hood testing and certifications are performed in compliance with ANSI/AIHA Z9.5 and ANSI/ASHRAE 110 recommended practices. Fume hood certifications should be performed at least annually, and are the most crucial device in the laboratory for personnel protection. It is extremely important that these devices are adjusted to the proper airflow rates, and the functional testing is performed by a knowledgeable technician. Please contact us for assistance with testing, certification, and safe lab practice consulting.
Healthcare Facility HVAC Testing
Along with new construction TAB projects, annual and semiannual HVAC testing has become an important component for many testing and balancing firms. Over the last 25 years, we have seen the routine testing requirements increase considerably due to improved infection control measures in the healthcare industry. When testing these existing facilities, a clear understanding of the owner’s ventilation requirements is vital. The facility managers and infection control departments will use this data as a record for actual conditions of the critical spaces within the hospital, and in most cases, will present the TAB report to their governing body and/or the accreditation organization such as the Joint Commission.
Analytical Balances & Precision Scales
Analytical scales are used for precise weight measurement where the slightest changes in weight can affect an experiment. All balances and scales are tested and calibrated using traceable and calibrated references. Test procedures conform to the manufacturer’s specifications and industry standards such as ASTM and OIML.
