The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) defines turbidity as the ‘reduction of transparency of a liquid caused by the presence of undissolved matter’. It is, therefore, the opposite of clarity.

Laminar Air Flow in Pharmaceutical Industry

A laminar air flow system is a vital concept in the control of particulate contamination in a pharmaceutical Industry. Cleanrooms in pharmaceutical industry maintain particulate-free air through the use of either HEPA or ULPA filters employing laminar or turbulent air flow principles.
Laminar airflow is working through air moving at the same speed and in the same direction, with no or minimal cross-over of air streams. Most contamination-sensitive environments in a pharmaceutical industry such as dust-free hoods require laminar flow because it predictably sweeps particles in a uniform direction, from the cleanest area under the hood. This design ensures that the cleanest area will always be the upstream area closest to hood. Laminar air flow systems are typically employed across 80% of a cleanroom ceiling to maintain constant air processing.
