Complete particle and environmental monitoring system for a network of cleanrooms.

“Kenelec Scientific were approached to design and fit out a number of specialised clean room suites in Kids Research with facility and equipment monitoring to meet the principles of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The team adapted to a complex project handed to them and communicated and understood all the deliverables required. At the completion of the project the facility now boasts an extremely user friendly real time monitoring system that delivers all the needs for a sterile manufacturing site.

Thank you to Kenelec Scientific for all your support and professionalism on our project, and without hesitation would highly recommend you after our experiences. We look forward to continue to work with you for our future needs.”

The customer

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network

The project

The customer had specific monitoring requirements for a network of cleanrooms in the hospital, which required a custom solution.

Our solution

Complete particle, and environmental, monitoring system for a network of grade B (ISO Class 6) cleanrooms with grade A cabinets was installed in 2019.

Kenelec Scientific – in partnership with Vaisala and TSI – built and validated a custom solution to meet the customer’s requirements. It utilises a mix of wired and wireless technologies to match building architecture and is being expanded to cover more areas that need monitoring.

The outcome

This is the second monitoring system to be installed within the research precincts at Westmead and Kenelec Scientific has been providing remote and on site support as customer requirements change and grow.

By planning out downtimes and calibration intervals through Service Level Agreements, Kenelec Scientific has helped its customers to maintain critical spaces effectively.
