Evaluation of cleanroom suitability

In promising industries such as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, the food industry and micro system technology, a cleanliness suitable production environment is a prerequisite for ensuring flawless product quality. The creation of these necessary highly clean production environments is associated with high costs.

At the Fraunhofer IPA, all products are verified on their cleanroom suitability according to VDI 2083 Part 8. Product examples are:

  • Production facilities (e.g. bonders, assembly equipment, filling equipment)
  • Measuring and testing equipment (e.g. inspection devices and microscopes)
  • Transport and handling facilities (e.g. linear axes, conveyors, robots)
  • Storage facilities (e.g. boxes, buffers)
  • Organisational resources (e.g. workpiece carriers)
  • Interior equipment (e.g. tables, chairs)

We carry out the necessary checks in all the areas of industry in which you wish to sell your products. We help you to develop your target and sales markets.


Our services include:

  • Certification of equipment, components, systems and environments for contamination-critical manufacturing
  • Support in the area of cleanroom-suitable design
  • Certification and development of testing and measurement methods for cleanliness control
  • Discovering optimisation potentials
  • Customer and market-oriented documentation (test report, certificate, record)
