ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of the construction of a new aseptic cleanroom, with particular focus on the design process and cleanroom classification. Planning, design, construction, commissioning and qualification are the phases involved in the design process. The floors, walls and ceilings should be made of smooth, hard and easy materials. The use of a computational flow dynamics analysis can reveal unforeseen problems in the design. The measurement of airflow velocity and airflow volume and the calculation of air changes per hour are some of the activities involved in classification of a cleanroom.
