With GREENGUARD, we are extending our safety commitment to the indoor air quality impact of Parata's technology to assure a clean, safe pharmacy environment for employees and customers," said Tom Rhoads, executive vice president, customer and market strategies. "It's our hope that other pharmacy providers will follow our lead."

GREENGUARD's product standard and test methodology meet or exceed specifications and chemical guidelines of the State of California, U.S. EPA, ACGIH (American Counsel for Government Industrial Hygienists) and other regulatory agencies. In addition, Air Quality Sciences, an independent indoor air-quality testing and research firm, is ISO 17025 accredited the highest quality standard for laboratories.

Testing was conducted in a dynamic environmental chamber where Parata RDS was operated to simulate maximum use conditions, equating to about a 1,000-prescription day. Fine particle and volatile chemical concentrations were monitored in the chamber and used to predict actual exposure concentrations in the pharmacy environment where the unit is in use. The predicted exposures while using Parata RDS were below GREENGUARD acceptance levels.

The GREENGUARD program is the most stringent and rigorous indoor air quality certification program in the world. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute's indoor air quality standards define products with low chemical and particle emissions for use indoors, primarily building materials, interior furnishings, furniture, cleaning and maintenance products, commercial and consumer equipment and personal care products. The standards establish certification procedures, including test methods, allowable emissions levels, product sample col
