The Fall River, Mass.-based company is planning to open a 5,400 square-foot clean room at its headquarters in February. The addition of the state-of-the-art clean room increases the firm's total overall clean room space to more than 8,000 square feet.
The new facility, according to the company, is designed to be certified as a Class 7/Class 10,000 clean room in accordance with criterion from the International Organization for Standardization.
The new clean room will be equipped with Sencorp bar and tray sealers and two top-of-the-line Branson ultrasonic cleaning systems with passivation capabilities. These two cleaners are sourced by a Siemens Reverse Osmosis high purity water system, which is equipped with ultra-violet sterilizers and filters to enhance water purification.
The clean room also will feature a Lighthouse continuous Particulate Monitoring System to help maintain Class 10,000 standards. In addition to particulates, temperature, humidity, and room pressure will be monitored through a web-based application.
The clean room has five pass-through chambers and two air-lock chambers as well as air, electric, and nitrogen utility hook ups throughout the room.
“We are excited to begin clean room operations at our Fall River headquarters,” said Christopher Ramsden, Millstone Medical's CEO. “The purpose of adding another advanced clean room is to provide our customers with access to increased high quality services. As our customers’ grow, we are committed to enhancing our facilities, personnel, and processes to accommodate their needs.”
