Isolation spaces represent some of the most critical spaces within a healthcare facility, given the potential harm they can pose to patients and staff if not monitored correctly. These spaces are commonly used to provide care for individuals with compromised immune systems, such as cancer or HIV patients, as well as to safeguard healthcare providers and the public against highly contagious diseases like Tuberculosis and COVID-19. The increased risk of infection from airborne pathogens underscores the importance of maintaining the highest standards of monitoring and equipment reliability.

Let’s face facts; manual monitoring of cleanroom particulate counts is costly, monotonous and highly error prone. Cleanroom managers are very aware that by far the greatest contamination threats come from individuals entering controlled spaces. Understandably, to reduce the number people accessing these critical environments, many companies are tasking the cleanroom operations staff already working within these spaces with the additional responsibility for manual environmental monitoring (EM). While this approach has obvious benefits, such as lower labor costs and reduced contamination risks, it also introduces significant new data integrity issues.
