Components of an Effective Disinfectant Prequalification Strategy

Environmental monitoring

Microbial control in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities is essential to ensure the production of safe, high-quality medicines. Cleaning procedures designed specifically to destroy microbial contaminants that may be present are an important component of any microbial control strategy. The effectiveness of disinfectant regimes employed in these cleaning procedures must be demonstrated to destroy common organisms recovered in the classified areas, which are identified through appropriate microbial identification in trending efforts.

In this whitepaper, we discuss the importance of pharmaceutical product manufacturers to ensure microbial control in the production environment through environmental monitoring, microbial identification and trending, and the use of proven and continually updated cleaning/disinfectant protocols.
