Lux level- Sampling area

Dear All,

What is the lux level requirement for sampling area of API and excipients,
Please provide the specification of sodium vapor lamp with respect to intensity and watt for light sensitive API sampling.


The Pharmaceutical sector often requires very precise and specific lighting solutions for laboratories and clean rooms. The work carried out in these environments is exact and critical, often with the need for climate control in the clean rooms and laboratories. Therefore the lighting needs to be meticulously chosen and fitted with pinpoint precision for its specific purpose.

Creating a good industrial pharmaceutical lighting system involves considering numerous design criteria while taking into account the visual tasks involved and the operating conditions at the facility. An ideal lighting intensity for office is 300-500 lux. It should be about 400 lux in all production areas and above 300 lux in sampling and dispensing should be higher than normal in inspection areas in order to see things in greater detail. Generally, an inspection room needs its light to have the intensity above 500 lux. Monitoring of the light intensity in all areas including manufacturing, stores, clean rooms and laboratories should be done yearly.
