Introduction
Congratulations on taking a big step towards improving the economies of scale, quality and speed of your microarray cleanroom research. This booklet contains a complete set of illustrations and protocols outlining the steps and principles needed to use Arrayit  microarray cleanroom suits, hoods, face masks and sticky mats.

Quality Control
Arrayit assures the performance of this product line. The finest scientific research was used to the develop these products. Rigorous quality control monitoring on a lot-by-lot basis guarantees that these cleanroom suits and other products conform to the highest cleanroom industry standards.

Product Description
Arrayit's Microarray Cleanroom Suits (Cat. MCSS, MCSM, and MCSL, MCSXL, MCSXXL and MCSXXXL) provide the highest quality synthetic, high-performance cleanroom suits at an affordable price. All of our cleanroom suits are manufactured in cleanrooms. Cleanroom manufacturing eliminates contamination of the suits with particulates, fibers, proteases, nucleases and other contaminants that impair the quality of microarray experimentation if non-cleanroom suits are used. Compare our cleanroom suits with traditional laboratory coats and gowns and you will see the difference.

Users will appreciate the following features:

  • Manufactured in cleanrooms
  • Free of particulates, fibers and biological contaminants
  • Ultra-low emission of volatile organics
  • Six precision sizes (small-3x large) to fit all cleanroom personnel
  • Convenient single suit per package
  • 100% high-tech synthetic composition
  • 99.9% retention of dry particles 0.2 µm and larger
  • Resistance to light chemical splashes

  • Anti-static packaging eliminates electrostatic contamination
  • Can also be used in traditional, non-cleanroom laboratories
  • Disposable
  • Five year shelf life at room temperature

Technical Notes
Federal Cleanroom Standard 209E defines and evaluates cleanrooms based on the number of particles of 0.5 µm diameter or larger present per cubic foot of cleanroom air, and those same standards are used to benchmark Arrayit’s microarray cleanrooms and cleanroom products. Class 1, 10, 100, 1,000 and 10,000 cleanrooms contain fewer than 1, 10, 100, 1,000 and 10,000 particles/ft3, respectively. Arrayit  Microarray Cleanroom Suits (Cat. MCSS, MCSM, MCSL, MCSXL, MCSXXL and MCSXXXL) are manufactured in class 10 cleanrooms. The ambient air in a traditional research laboratory contains up to 1,000,000 particles/ft3 depending upon the facility.

Arrayit Microarray Cleanroom Suits (Cat. MCSS, MCSM, MCSL, MCSXL, MCSXXL and MCSXXXL) are sized in accordance with standard laboratory clothing. Small, medium, large, and extra large sizes fit persons possessing but not exceeding the following height and body weight: small fits up to 5’ 2” (157 cm) and 110 lbs (50 kg), medium fits up to 5’ 6” (168 cm) and 145 lbs (66 kg), large fits up to 5’ 10” (178 cm) and 180 lbs (82 kg), extra large fits up to 6’ 2” (188 cm) and 220 lbs (100 kg), 2X large fits up to 6’ 4” (193 cm) and 250 lbs (114 kg) and 3X large fits up to 6’ 6” (198 cm) and 270 lbs (123 kg).

Short Protocol (Steps 1-6):
1. Remove the Microarray Cleanroom Suits from the shipping box.
2. Decontaminate the anti-static bag topically with 100% ethanol.
3. Decontaminate the anti-static bag with particle-free forced air (optional).
4. Transport the Microarray Cleanroom Suits into the cleanroom changing area.
5. Remove excess clothing and put on the Microarray Cleanroom Suit.
6. Enter the cleanroom and perform cleanroom tasks as needed.

Complete Protocol (Steps 1-6):
1. Remove the Microarray Cleanroom Suits from the shipping box. The packaging material is a silver-colored anti-static bag that prevents electrostatic and particle contamination of the suits. Do not open the anti-static bag until inside the changing room of a cleanroom.

2. Decontaminate the anti-static bag topically with 100% ethanol. Cover your hands with Microarray Cleanroom Gloves, wet a cleanroom wipe liberally with 100% ethanol, and wipe the outside of the silver anti-static package to remove particulates and other forms of debris. Do not open zip-lock package until inside the cleanroom changing room.

3. Decontaminate the anti-static bag with particle-free forced air (optional). For Class 1, 10, 100 and 1,000 cleanrooms, the anti-static package should also be decontaminated with a filtered source of pressurized oil-free air prior to entry into the cleanroom changing area. Forced air removes additional contaminating particles prior to entering the cleanroom facility. Make certain to wear Microarray Cleanroom Gloves at all times when handling the decontaminated, anti-static packaging material. Failure to wear suitable hand protection will introduce hand oils, ribonucleases, and other contaminants into the cleanroom.

4. Transport the Microarray Cleanroom Suits into the cleanroom changing area. Make certain to remove shoes, sweaters, and other non-essential clothing prior to entering the cleanroom.  Microarray Cleanroom Gloves or equivalent hand coverings should also be worn at all times when inside a cleanroom. Open the zip-lock package and remove the cleanroom suit. Unfold it carefully into its fully extended form.

5. Remove excess clothing and put on the Microarray Cleanroom Suit. Open the zipper completely and step into the Microarray Cleanroom Suit, making sure that the appropriate suit size (S, M, L, XL, XXL or XXXL) has been selected. Close the cleanroom suit by zipping the front completely, and make certain that the elastic wrist and ankle bands are positioned properly. The cleanroom suit should fit snuggly, but should allow free movement. Cleanroom suits that are too large or too small should not be worn in a cleanroom, and the correct size suit should be used at all times. Personnel with long hair should make sure that all hair is tucked inside the elastic hood of the cleanroom suit. Face shields and other respiratory devices can also be worn to provide additional containment against contamination. Gloved hands should be decontaminated topically with ethanol using Microarray Cleanroom Wipes prior to entering the cleanroom.

6. Enter the cleanroom and perform cleanroom tasks as needed. Microarray Cleanroom Suits provide excellent protection against cleanroom contamination by the human body, which can emit up to 1,000,000 particles per hour if not properly covered. Personnel should avoid excessive or extreme movements to prevent tearing the cleanroom suit. If the cleanroom suit is torn during use, exit the cleanroom immediately and put on a new suit. The use of torn or damaged cleanroom suits in a cleanroom is strictly forbidden. Personnel should replace their cleanroom suits every 20 hours of use as part of good cleanroom procedure. The use of soiled cleanroom suits is not recommended under any circumstances. Microarray Cleanroom Suits are disposable and soiled suits can be discarded in the cleanroom waste containers located in the changing room. Cleanroom suit material should never be exposed to flammable substances or sources of open flame.

Troubleshooting Tips
Occasional cleanroom suit tearing:

  • Choose a larger size or avoid excessive or extreme movements

Cleanroom suit uncomfortably warm:

  • Reduce the temperature in the cleanroom and remove excess clothing such as heavy shirts and sweaters.
