Many diagnostic centres function round the clock and houses the state-of-the-art, fully automated electronic equipment and advanced instrumentation from leading international brands. Such expensive medical instrument requires 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.
In addition, uncontrolled humidity strongly influences culturability. As collection (culture/ stool) samples are highly vulnerable and gets impacted by the environment, they require optimum humidity level for storing and testing. High humidity can increase overgrowth of bacteria and impact the accuracy of the test result.
Failing to control excess humidity in a diagnostic centre can lead to degradation of various chemical compounds and substances which are used for tests 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 sensitive devices, which can result in:
Increased microorganisms growth
This may further lead to:
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 and 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.
