AS 1807:2021 Separative devices – Biological and cytotoxic drug safety cabinets, clean workstations and pharmaceutical isolators一 Methods of test.
This document specifies requirements and test methods for the testing of separative devices, comprising biological and cytotoxic drug safety cabinets, clean workstations and pharmaceutical isolators.
The testing methods can be applied on any manufactured product that meets the requirements of AS 2252 Parts 1 to 6 and AS 4273. This document can also be used for other items of equipment that are used as a separative device in critical applications.
NOTE For testing of clean rooms, see AS ISO 14644.3.
The methods of test can be applied to separative devices within any work place environment.
Where separative devices are not manufactured in accordance with this document (e.g. imported products), testing to this document may be suitable for the purposes of claims of conformance to an Australian Standard.
