     Selvam,
        MOST likely sources of molds I've seen, are CORRUGATED CARDBOARD
     materials in or near the facility (chemical or materials packaging,
     etc.)- then the DUCT-WORK leading into the areas. If you've removed
     everything from its shipping packaging elsewhere, and no corrugated is
     getting into your Class 10,000 area, then check your HVAC ducts; you
     may have a reservoir of mold-spores somewhere there- a puddle of
     condensate, an old prefilter, whatever- which is blowing mold spores
     into your area. Last item is PEOPLE, and how they access the facility
     (and from what kind of environments), and how they're garbed or
     prepared for working in the area.
        Hope this helps-

        Hi Every body,

        I am a Microbiologist working in  Pharmaceutical industry. We are
        manufacturing bulk drugs in our facility. In recent times we were
        observing frequent mold contamination from our environmental samples.
        The area is class 10000 and we are now trying to find out possible
        source of contamination. I would like to get some more suggestions
        from the group members to find out possible source.

        Thanks

        Selvam.

        Singapore.
