Sterile Rooms and Clean Rooms
What is the difference between a Sterile Room and a Clean Room? As the name suggests, a Sterile Room is an environment in which living organisms, such as micro-organisms, bacteria, germs and viruses, are not present. Because of this characteristic, Sterile Rooms are used in sectors where the presence of these contaminants can be dangerous.
Firstly, in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors, the presence of bacteria can compromise both drugs and the safety of patients kept under observation.
Secondly, every step involved in the Food and Beverages sector, where these are processed, requires maximum cleanliness and sterility.
Processes carried out in the micro-electronics, semiconductor, optical and aerospace sectors do not require a Sterile Room. In these areas, controlling the amount of suspended particles in the Clean Room is all that is needed to ensure that operations run perfectly.
