Cleanroom documentation is an often overlooked area of working in a controlled environment. Writing, note-taking, printing, labeling, and record-keeping inside of your cleanroom must incorporate the use of lint-free cleanroom paper, cleanroom notebooks, pens, and related supplies to avoid introduction of contaminants. Cleanroom paper is made of specialty non-shedding materials with sealed edges to ensure no lint or particles of any type come off of the paper.
Non-sterile and sterile cleanroom pens are manufactured using a non-shedding barrel material that holds up to frequent wipe-downs with isopropyl alcohol and other cleaning and sterilizing chemicals. The pens use specially made inks that are low in certain chemicals and made to be non-smearing.
