Infection Prevention & Control in Hospital and Healthcare Settings

Air Source Technology, Inc. is an active member of APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc.) ASTI has the engineering background and expertise to properly examine the following factors:

  • Ventilation system and water system performance
  • Differential pressure verification for isolation rooms
  • Proper use of dust-control procedures and barriers during construction, renovation, repairs, demolition
  • Use of airborne particulate sampling to monitor effectiveness of air filtration and dust control procedures, including statistically valid interpretation
  • Routine culturing of water as part of a control program for Legionella
  • Guidance in recovering from water leaks, and natural disasters

Hospital/Healthcare Construction, Renovation, or Repair

Construction personnel along with hospital personnel are responsible for providing a safe environment for both patients and staff during construction activities. We will provide the tools needed to maintain a safe operating patient environment to eliminate infection control issues.

Air Source Technology, Inc. provides Infection Control Construction Monitoring:

  • In-progress Particulate Sampling
  • Construction Area Containment Verification & Monitoring
  • Baseline Bioaerosol Sampling
  • Infection Control Risk Assessments (ICRA) & Pre-Construction Risk Assessment
  • Alarmed & Data logged Construction Area Pressure Monitoring
  • Testing and Planning per Joint Commission (JCAHO)

USP ‹797› Pharmaceutical Compliance Testing

As a member of the Controlled Environment Testing Association & Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST), ASTI has access to the latest information and tools needed to properly test the cleanroom environments and workspaces per the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Revised Chapter ‹797› Pharmaceutical Compounding—Sterile Preparations. Specific guidelines for environmental control and monitoring are described in USP ‹797› that require a level of expertise and equipment that accentuate ASTI's leadership in Kentucky when it comes to technology and testing. Properly testing to USP ‹797› guidelines requires the background of both cleanroom certification and microbiological sampling that are a part of ASTI's history.
