Foreword
This Standard refers to ISO 14698-1 ?€?Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments - Biocontamination control - Part 1. General principles and methods?€?, ISO/TS 11133-1.2000 (English version) ?€?Microbiology of food and animal feeding stuffs - Guidelines on preparation and production of culture media - Part 1. General guidelines on quality assurance for the preparation of culture media in the laboratory?€?.
This Standard replaces GB/T 16294-1996 ?€?Test method for settling microbe in clean room (area) of the pharmaceutical industry?€?.
The main differences between this Standard and GB/T 16294-1996 are.
- ADD the method for determining the minimum number of sampling points; - MODIFY the original standard 4.8.3.2 to ?€?4.10.2 [Translator?€?s note. this should be 4.4.5 in this Standard] The petri dish prepared by soybean casein agar medium (TSA) are sampled and cultured in the incubator at 30 ??C to 35 ??C for no less than 2 d. The petri dish prepared by sabouraud medium (SDA) are sampled and cultured in the incubator at 20 ??C ~ 25 ??C for no less than 5 d.?€?;
- ADD the content of 5.8 ?€?Daily monitoring?€?, ADD the establishment of
correcting limits and warning limits for the control of microbial concentration in the air of clean room (zone) and the content of how to determine the sampling frequency in this Standard.

GB/T 16292-2010 Test method for airborne particles in clean room(zone) of the pharmaceutical industry
3 Terms and definitions
For the purpose of this Standard, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1
settling microbe
Visible number of colonies that are colonized using living microbial particles in the air collected by the method mentioned in this Standard, in special culture medium, under suitable growth conditions.
3.2
settling microbe plate count
Number of setting microbe in the air that are collected in each plate petri dish in the specified period of time, expressed in cells/dish.
4 Test method
4.1 Method summary
This test method adopts the sedimentation method, that is, collect biological particles in the air on the culture medium plate through natural sedimentation principle, after some time, let it grow to visible colonies under appropriate conditions and count, determine the number of living microorganisms in a clean environment by counting the number of colonies in the plate petri dish, so as to assess the cleanliness of the clean room (zone).
4.2 Personnel responsibility and training
The test personnel of the clean room (zone) shall be trained in this specialty and obtain relevant qualifications before they can perform their duties in the clean room (zone) test, which includes hygienic knowledge and basic
knowledge of the microorganisms involved.
The test personnel of the clean room (zone) shall select the wear that suits the air cleanliness grade requirements of the production operation, and the outer clothes cannot be brought into the area of 100 000 grade or more.
4.3 Instruments
The instrument shall include.
a) petri dish;
b) culture medium (see Annex B of this Standard);
c) constant temperature incubator;
d) high pressure steam sterilizer.
4.3.1 Petri dish
It generally uses ??90 mm ?? 15 mm petri dishes.
4.3.2 Culture medium
Soybean casein agar medium (TSA) or sabouraud medium (SDA) or user-
approved and validated medium. The preparation method is shown in Annex B. 5.4.4.1 For unidirectional-flow clean rooms (zones) or air supply ports, the sampling port of the sampler shall face the airflow direction; for non- unidirectional-flow clean rooms (zones), the sampling port shall be upward. 5.4.4.2 When arranging the sampling points, it shall at least avoid the return air outlets with relatively concentrated dust particles as far as possible. 5.4.4.3 When sampling, the testing personnel shall stand on the downwind side of the sampling port and move as little as possible.
5.4.4.4 It shall take all measures to prevent contamination during the sampling process and other possible contamination of the sample.
5.4.4.5 When the petri dish is used for testing, in order to avoid the influence of the process of transporting or moving the petri dish, it should carry out a control test at the same time. TAKE a control dish each time or at each area, OPERATE in the same way as the sampling dish without exposing the sampling, and then PLACE it in the incubator along with the sampled petri dish (TSA or SDA). The result shall be there is no colonies.
5.5 Records
The test report shall contain the following.
a) name and address of the tester, test date;
b) test basis;
c) plane position of the clean room (zone) to be tested (mark the plane position of the adjacent area if necessary);
d) description of the test instrument and the test method. including test environmental conditions, number of sampling points and layout diagram, number of tests, or possible changes in the test method, test instrument certification certificates, etc.; if it is a dynamic state test, it shall record the number and location of on-site operators and the number and location of on-site instruments.
e) test result; including all statistical calculation data.
5.6 Result calculation
5.6.1 Count the number of colonies in each petri dish.
5.6.2 For the calculation of the average colony count of setting microbe at each test point, see equation (1).
