Controlled Environments and Cleanrooms in Laboratory and Research Facilities (Microlearning)


A controlled environment is an enclosed area, such as a room, where measures are being taken to control certain parameters of the environment, most commonly to ensure the integrity of research data, control the production of sensitive products, or protect against dangerous contamination. Cleanrooms are controlled environments where exceptional measures are being taken to control environmental conditions as much as feasibly possible. Keeping a cleanroom controlled requires workers to take measures to control contamination. Learners who successfully complete this course will be able to recognize the standard methods for controlling contaminants in a controlled environment.
