Packaging under clean room conditions is mandatory for Inpakomed’s business relationships who set strict requirements as far as hygiene and low contamination of their products are concerned. Inpakomed provides a class 10.000 clean room (class 7 according to ISO 14644 Part 1). In common language: there must be less than 10.000 0.5 micron dust particles per cubic foot of the work environment. Considering that a normal work environment is generally characterised by even bigger dust particles reaching levels like 50 million units, it is clear that the clean room of Inpakomed meets the stated class conditions and receives the highest attention the possible.
