Humidity problems in Diagnostic Centres


Many diagnostic centres functions 24X7 and houses the state-of-the-art, fully automated electronic equipment and advanced instrumentation from leading international brands. Such expensive medical instruments require environmental stability to operate optimally and maintain the accuracy of results.

A small amount of variation in humidity may affect the accuracy of their diagnosis or interrupt a process. Humidity obstructs the smooth functioning of sensors installed in them for the purpose of measurement which can affect analytical results.

Also, uncontrolled moisture strongly influences culturability. As collection (culture/ stool) samples are highly vulnerable to get impacted from the environment and require optimum humidity level for storing and testing, high humidity can increase overgrowth of bacteria and impact the accuracy of the test result.

Additionally, uncontrol humidity in a diagnostic centre leads to degradation of various chemical compounds and substances which are used for the test or analysis.

Effects of Uncontrolled Humidity in a Diagnostic Centre

Usually, the instrument sensors are somewhat sensitive to humidity/moisture. Moisture present in the environment gets absorbed by your sensitive devices, which can result in:

  • Corrosion
  • Increased microorganisms growth
  • Condensation
  • Moisture Regain
  • Frosting

This may further lead to:

  • Inaccurate readings
  • Recurrent breakdown
  • The shortened life cycle of instruments
  • Elevated maintenance cost
  • Loss of credibility and reputation

Our Recommended Solution

Dehumidification is essential for maintaining dry conditions in diagnostic laboratories, testing rooms- to avoid condensation and contamination. It helps in maintaining the perfect environment and obtaining accurate test results. A comfortable working environment is considered 20 to 25 °C with a relative humidity of 35% to 50% depending on the geographical area.  In general, the work areas should be free of temperature extremes that are hazardous to health or which interfere with safe operations. We recommend maintaining the Relative Humidity (RH) level at 40-50% in MRI Room, CT Scan Room, X-ray machine Room and other high-value equipment rooms.

Bry-Air Desiccant Dehumidifierscan help you in maintain Relative Humidity (RH) levels to prevent moisture-related problems regardless of ambient conditions.
