This course is designed for anyone involved with in-situ testing of HEPA filters using the Dispersed Oil Particle (DOP) method. It is also useful for facility managers, quality personnel, or anyone who is involved in witnessing or signing off DOP testing undertaken by third party contractors. High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters are commonly used in cleanrooms, isolators, safety cabinets or uni-directional “laminar” flow cabinets in pharmaceutical and other life science facilities. They are also commonly used in HVAC systems in the nuclear and asbestos removal industries. Whilst the filters themselves are usually thoroughly tested by the manufacturer, an in-situ test must be carried out any new system, to test the overall integrity of that system, and on a routine basis thereafter.
