Life Sciences

Are you looking for air filters and clean air solutions for the pharmaceuticals and life sciences industry? Camfil is your expert for air filtration and dust removal in strictly regulated environments.


The life sciences sector is a strictly regulated industry that manufactures i.a. medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products in a wide variety of compositions. The production processes have to be protected in order to guarantee the reliability and quality of the products and to protect man and the environment from toxic substances inherent to the production process.

Before production can start or be restarted, strict controls are applied in order to ensure that the production process is in conformity with the applicable legislations and with the good manufacturing practices (GMP) quality assurance system.

The standards to be observed are defined locally or internationally. The most widely known directives for Europe are formulated by the European Medicine Agency (EMA), and for the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


Camfil offers air filtration, containment and dust removal solutions that meet the most stringent standards. These enable you to guarantee the quality of your production.
