Equipment Testing

Includes laminar flow hoods, isolators & balance enclosures.

Fume Hood Testing

According to the standards set forward by OSHA, chemical fume hood testing should be conducted on an annual basis at a minimum. Additionally, new fume hoods should be tested upon installation prior to utilization. It also is recommended that a reevaluation should be performed any time changes are made to the equipment. This ensures the safety of the occupants within a facility.

HEPA Filter Integrity Testing

HEPA filter integrity testing – documents leakage or defects and ensures HEPA filters provide required filtration to prevent both product and environmental contamination. Smoke pattern testing – qualitatively verifies airflow directions using a small source of visible fog.

Repairs & HEPA Air Filter Replacement Services

CECS offers a wide range of HEPA filter and containment device repair services. Regularly working with leading equipment manufacturers enables our trained technicians to perform prompt diagnostics, troubleshooting, and repair. We maintain a stock of commonly used parts to ensure availability in critical situations. We can help you keep your equipment operational with minimal disruption or downtime.

USP 797/800 Pharmacy Certification

USP 797 compliance requirements are in place to ensure patient safety through meeting quality standards for any entity or individual involved in storage, handling, preparation and transportation of CSPs. USP 800 provides standards for safe handling of hazardous drugs to minimize the risk of exposure to healthcare personnel, patients and the environment.
