Normal hours of operation for the cleanroom are Monday through Friday between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm (unless closed for site holiday). All other hours are considered ‘afterhours’ and require a buddy who is a qualified clean room user and a certified C14 user for all processing types. Each user HAS to swipe their own card.

Other than chemical operations, working alone during normal hours is an acceptable practice providing there is a C14 qualified user on the floor. It is recommended that workers who are alone in the lab have a cell phone on them and maintain regular contact with an individual who is outside of the laboratory. Phones are available in the lab at three locations: Backend bay, Litho bay, and furnace bay (the latter is not yet open for use).

Please note that the clean room is monitored by cameras and video recording 24/7.
