Following National Guidelines from HTM 03-01 and the Hospital Infection Society, air sampling can be carried out as part of routine monitoring, commissioning works or any major refurbishment to theatres.
Samples are taken via sieve impaction process and incubated in our university based laboratory. Results are usually available within 48/72 hours. Providing the results fall within the parameters for UCV (Ultra Clean Ventilation) or Conventionally Ventilated Theatres, our Certificate Of Air quality can be issued. This is a useful tool in the event of any CQC audit.
