Total microbial count should be less than one.
Laminar airflow smoke test.
A smoke pattern test relies on a visual medium smoke being generated in a manner that allows observation of airflow patterns.
Perform the test from 5 different locations.
The visual smoke must be neutrally buoyant and mimic ambient air.
This test is to verify that the air flows smoothly downwards with no dead spots or reflux and that it does not escape from the cabinet.
Smoke visualization testinguses a source of visible smoke that is neutrally buoyant.
This enables our technicians to render unidirectional airflow visible and reveal any anomalies such as dead spots and potential reflux of ambient air.
It must be checked that no smoke is refluxed out of the cabinet once drawn in and no smoke billows over the work surface or penetrates it.

Working in a horizontal flow laminar air flow workstation lafw is different that working in a vertical flow biological safety cabinet bsc or compounding aseptic isolator cai.
Airflow patterns could be easily disturbed with equipment design machine guarding necessary interventions and inappropriate component specifications.
Air particulate matter count assesses laminar flow hood air for the presence of particulate matter.

An airflow visualization smoke pattern test should be used to train and instruct compounding personnel in proper aseptic technique for every pec in which they work.
Air flow testing for chemical fume hoods 2 of 2 duration.
Specific airflow air flow pattern visualization testing standards and guidelines are provided by the usp and fda.
Not more than 100 particles of size more than or equal to 0 5 micron per cubic feet of sampled air is allowed.
The visual medium must be nearly neutrally buoyant.
