Flow rate is important to consider when selecting a particle counter for a critical environment. The flow rate of a particle counter is the rate at which a pump draws air through the sample chamber, measured in cubic feet per minute (cfm). Two common flow rates for particle counters are 1 cfm and 0.1 cfm. Depending on the application, each flow rate can be valuable.

USP 800 is the standard governing hazardous drugs and their handling during receipt, storage, compounding, dispensing, administration, and disposal of both sterile and nonsterile preparation. USP 800 is in place to protect personnel and environments from hazardous drugs compounds, such as those in chemotherapy drugs or radiopharmaceuticals. USP 800 focuses on the safe handling of hazardous drugs (HDs) to minimize the risk of exposure to healthcare personnel, patients, and the environment. A drug is considered hazardous if

USP 797 is the standard in place governing the sterile preparation of compounded pharmaceuticals. USP 797 covers the compounding of both hazardous and nonhazardous drugs with a focus on the protection of sterile compounds and environments from contamination. This standard is in place to ensure patient safety and reduce risks associated with compounding pharmaceuticals, including contamination, infection, and incorrect dosage. The standard helps to guarantee patients receive quality drugs free from contaminates. This standard applies to all pharmacies that produce compounded sterile preparations (CSPs); this includes pharmacies within hospitals, radio or nuclear pharmacies, chemo units, and operating rooms. The goal of the standard is to prevent harm to patients resulting from microbial contamination, bacterial endotoxins, variation in the strength of ingredients, and chemical and physical contaminates.
