Cytotoxic Standard Changes, Publication of AS2252.5.

Standards Australia has published a new document, AS 2252.5, which concerns the construction and performance validation for Cytotoxic Drug Safety Cabinet’s (CDSC’s). The aim of this letter is to provide you with a brief on some of those changes and how they may impact on your laboratory in the future.

AS2252.5 incorporates several key aspects of room design where previously this was contained in other standards. Notably, there is a requirement for a capture exhaust within the cytotoxic suite and certification requirements surrounding room pressures, air change rates and temperatures, to name a few. The standard draws these requirements from a number of source documents including ISO 14644 parts 1 & 3, AS 1668.2, HEPA standards and 1807 test method standards.

CDSC’s have carbon filters fitted in order to reduce the risk to the environment and personnel of potential gaseous contamination that could be generated within the work zone of a CDSC. It has been determined that the carbon filter, due to the nature of its use, is required to be replaced annually, at point of service. This is a significant cost to the regular annual certification process of any CDSC. The replacement of the carbon filter has been determined as necessary due to an inability to validate, on-site, the remaining adsorption capacity of the carbon within the media.

An ISO Class 5 cleanliness rating is required within the work zone of the CDSC. This test requires a technician to undertake particle counting within the work zone of the CDSC while the unit is ‘at rest’, the validating technician will be responsible for the reporting of the results. This is an additional process, beyond the current annual certification requirements, and will likely see an increase in service cost due to use of specialist equipment and labour.

Minor changes include a relaxation of sound level tests and lighting intensity tests. With the sound level range moving higher, to allow for a greater operating sound level and the lighting intensity reducing, to allow for lower lighting levels. This is in line with the requirements of AS2252.2, Class II Biological Safety Cabinet’s (BSC’s) and the tests are now considered optional.

In addition to the above, there are also a number of changes related to cabinet design. Those have been omitted from this document as it will have little impact on the annual certification of the equipment that you currently have in your laboratory.

For more information related to the above or if you would like to discuss further how these changes may impact on your facility, then please feel free to contact the AES team at your convenience.

AES Environmental Head Office in Sydney is moving, but don’t worry, we are not going far.

Due to continued growth and strength of Australian manufactured products, AES Environmental Sydney will be moving to 9A Pembury Rd, Minto, NSW 2566. AES Environmental is looking forward to the continued expansion of our services and manufacturing plant, as Pembury Rd allows AES Environmental to actively engage with its customers by providing areas for visitors to view AES Enivironmentals’ filtration test rigs and to learn about the Australian Standards and the groups manufacturing capabilities. Our customers will be able to visit us in our new premises towards the end of August, because we are only moving a few streets down, we anticipate only very limited disruption to regular service.

We look forward to being able to better supply our customers while we continue to develop our local manufacturing capabilities further.

Our Clyde-Apac CG2000 Cytotoxic Drug Safety Cabinet (CDSC) was first produced in Australia in the late 1980′s. This model has only seen minor changes throughout the years with updates applied to the design as standards have developed. New technology has been introduced for the control system and fans, improving energy efficiency and ease of operation.

Fundamentally the series remains the same, tried and tested throughout the years and still as popular as ever. AES recently won a project for the supply of CDSC’s to the new childrens hospital in Perth along with projects in South Australia. This year AES has exported its CG2000 to 10 different countries, this has been a boost to our Australian Manufacturing and it demonstrates just how highly considered the Australian Standards are.

Ozone generators are becoming increasingly popular in IAQ applications. This is against the recommendations of the NSW Health Department who have issued a statement on the potentially harmful consequences of using ozone to treat contaminated air. Ozone generators are particularly common in Kitchen Exhaust applications

AES Environmental manufactures a kitchen exhaust system (EKEM) that utilises electrostatic precipitators, particulate and gas-phase filters that are just as suitable and won’t produce the toxic gasses that some other systems can.

IAQ is a serious matter and many serious chronic diseases are being attributed to air pollution. We have several solutions to help you improve your IAQ, If you would like some additional information or some assistance with your air filtration, please contact your nearest AES office.

Can you locate your buildings air filters − how often are they checked?

Do your staff members complain of a “stuffy” working environment?

Did you know poorly maintained filtration systems can increase your operating costs?

Ever wondered why coils and ducts become dirty in the first place?

Improving your filtration can reduce duct and coil cleaning costs with over 80% of poor filtration in HVAC systems is not caused by the filters’ efficiency, but deficient retaining systems, sealing arrangements and filter selection are generally the cause.

Improving filter efficiency can decrease your pressure differences resulting in significantly lower operating costs.

Email Air Handling has a large service network to cater for statewide and national service contracts.
