Air Quality Professionals from Camfil Explain the Need for Clean Air in Pharmacies

In a new resource, Camfil air quality professionals explain the importance of adequate air filtration in pharmacies.

Over 10,000 prescription medications, in addition to compound medications and biological products, are available in the United States. Many prescription medications are harmful when inhaled, which can have significant adverse impacts on the short- and long-term health of the pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and other staff that handle and dispense them.

In a new resource by global air filter engineering company and manufacturer Camfil, air quality professionals with decades of combined experience improving air quality in medical and pharmaceutical settings explain the importance of adequate air filtration in pharmacies.

“Medication can become unsafe or ineffective when contaminated with airborne pollutants. This is especially true of sterile medication, which must not be exposed to contaminants in order to minimize the risk of infection,” says John Tomanovich, Life Sciences Segment Manager for Camfil, USA, “High temperatures and humidity levels can cause medication to degrade over time. Poor air quality exacerbates this degradation, making medication less effective or potentially unsafe while reducing its shelf life.”

The resource covers the following topics:

  • How poor air quality in pharmacies can harm pharmacy staff

  • How poor air quality in pharmacies can reduce the effectiveness of medications

  • Federal standards for pharmacy air quality

  • State regulations for pharmacy air quality

  • Professional guidelines for pharmacy air quality

  • Airborne contaminants that affect pharmacy air quality

  • Best air filters for improving indoor air quality in pharmacies
