Particle Counters keep in mind 2

According to ISO 14644-1:2015 cleanroom classification standard, 𝘙𝘦𝘲𝘶𝘪𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘚𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘚𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘝𝘰𝘭𝘶𝘮𝘦 (VS) is the only formula (Formula A.2) that you should calculate as;

𝗩𝘀=(𝟮𝟬/𝗖𝗻)*𝟭𝟬𝟬𝟬

Where, Cn is the class limit for the largest considered particle
size.

If you print the below table out, you don’t have to calculate every single cleanroom ISO class and designated particle sizes. This table could prove to be useful for cleanroom qualification and contamination control departments!
