Application Note: Purair Ductless Technology and USP 800 Compliance Creating a better C-PEC
1 May 2017

This paper discusses the design and construction features of a set of engineering controls, collectively known as containment primary engineering controls (C-PECs), for hazardous drugs in healthcare settings. Biological safety cabinets and fume hoods in particular will be examined to identify the features that most effectively prevent exposure and meet USP 800 requirements.
