Cleanrooms are an established and expected feature of healthcare and pharmaceutical operations; however, their development has been gradual and the origins, in terms of the idea of a ‘clean space’ date back several hundred years.

In the second part of his history of cleanrooms, Tim Sandle looks at the developments from the 1970s and the issuing of the first international standard for cleanrooms and clean air devices – ISO 14644.
