This page includes instructions on how to dress before entering the cleanroom.


Before entering the gowning room

Make sure you are wearing appropriate attire:

  • Shoes should fully enclose the feet (no sandals, open toe, or sling-back shoes).
  • Remove outer clothing (i.e., hats, jackets, fuzzy sweaters).

Make sure you have everything you need with you to work in the lab and that it is all cleanroom-compatible.

On entering the gowning room

Obtain a bunnysuit. Clean suits are available in the gowning room.

Put on the bunnysuit.

Put the shoe covers over your shoes and fasten the snap.

Put on safety glasses, plastic gloves, and a paper "snood" over your mouth.

Put on your hood and make sure all your hair is covered.

Now you are cleanroom ready!
