BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ARAMARK Cleanroom Services, the industry leader in providing sterile products and services for cleanroom environments, introduces the world's first and only reusable goggle that is validated sterile and does not discolor or breakdown during the sterilization process. Unlike other goggles, the ARAMARK Acuity Goggle™ maintains visual clarity, does not discolor and emits no odor when irradiated – a common process required to ensure sterility of items in cleanroom environments.
"The Acuity Goggle truly is a game changer for people and companies working in a research or manufacturing setting, where maintaining a sterile environment is critical," said Mike Rataj, Group Technical Manager. "Before, their reusable protective eyewear would turn yellow and start to break down each time they went through the sterilization process, and would often impede the visual clarity they need to do their jobs."The ARAMARK Acuity Goggle™ is more durable and retains its visual transmittance through a life span of 25 irradiation cycles, whereas other goggles can only be used from one to eight times before they must be discarded. This results in greater cost and safety benefits, and has the added environmental benefit of reducing waste and a allowing for a more sustainable approach for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, electronics and other companies who operate sterile facilities. Additional benefits to the end wearer include ARAMARK's patented adjustable low-particulating comfort strap with gamma compatible buckles, oversized indirect vents that limit fogging and improved air flow, and the goggles are custom designed to accommodate prescription glasses while providing superior peripheral visibility. "The Acuity Goggle is ANSI Z87 compliant and is validated and generally appropriate for use in both aseptic and non-aseptic environments," Rataj added. Each is delivered with Certification of Processing (ISO Class 5 Cleanroom) and a Sterilization Validation Compliance Letter.
