Cleanroom Testing and Monitoring
By William Whyte
ISBN: 978-0-9956666-9-6; Hardback and Digital; 312pp
Cleanrooms have to provide a measurable clean environment of a very high standard to avoid problems caused by contamination from particles, microbes and chemicals. To ensure that cleanrooms deliver the correct level of cleanliness, they must be rigorously tested when first installed and then at regular intervals throughout their life. This new book is an essential guide to state-of-the-art methods used for testing and monitoring cleanrooms to ensure that they provide the correct and necessary levels of cleanliness.
This book is divided into two parts:
The first part consists of 14 chapters that provide a sound understanding of routine test methods used to ensure that cleanrooms function correctly and maintain their correct level of cleanliness.
The second part consists of 10 annexes that provide more specialised information about testing and monitoring methods required by cleanroom testing professionals.
Dr William (Bill) Whyte, the author of this book, is an international authority on cleanrooms and has been involved in their design, testing, and operation for over 50 years. He is a member of BSI and ISO working groups that are writing, or have written, cleanroom standards and has extensive experience as an industrial consultant and presenter of educational courses about cleanrooms.

"The book is aimed directly at cleanroom testers and is indeed derived from and now forms the basis for CTCB-I testing courses, but it is really also an essential reference for cleanroom managers, cleanroom service engineers, cleanroom designers and specifiers and anybody who is concerned with cleanrooms. If you know how your cleanroom must be tested, you will design a better cleanroom!
The whole book is well illustrated with full-colour diagrams and photographs. There is a comprehensive reference section comprising mainly international (ISO) standards, international guidelines from IEST (Recommended Practices), Eudralex (EU GMP), ASTM etc. and various papers by the author and others. And of course, there is an index."

"Gathered together is the testing and monitoring that will be experienced by most pharmaceutical cleanroom manufactures and assembled in one volume. In addition, background information is provided on design and function of cleanrooms and their associated HVAC. This book may be targeted towards those conducting cleanroom testing but others involved in cleanroom operations who wish to gain a greater understanding of the technology will find a very useful and readable reference document."
