Dear Ramreddy,

There are many diverse opinions here on this topic. Regulatory values are generally not common. It may also depend on yr specific product / process.

Could try this for a starter (a quick search will give many more ) -

Hi,

I recently found the medical standards for clean rooms. Obviously very strict, but there lowest category (d) may be helpful as it is for non critical areas in medical which is defined as " Clean areas for carrying out less critical stages in the manufacture of sterile products"
For these the airplate counts are:
Air sample <200cfu/ m3
settle plates (diam 90mm) < 100 cfu/ m3
Contact plates (diam 50mm) , 50 cfu/ m3

I am currently trying to find final values for all of these, and if I track anything further down, I will post them.

Keep well,

Norah- Ann

Hello,



In Romanian are establish the value for sanitation test by legislation:

This are the values, maybe can help you:

Air for production area NTG <600/m3; yeast &moulds <300/m3

Work surface: coliforms absent, NTG <2 if the coliforms are absent

Hands: enterobacteriacee absent, staphilococ coagulazo-pozitiv absent;

Work equipment: NTG absent, coliforms absent



All the best,

maricmargot
