Human Microbiome and Implications for Contamination Control: Webinar


People are the biggest source of contamination in cleanrooms. The findings from the human microbiome project suggest an overview of controls is required. This presentation reviews the latest research into the human microbiome, especially in relation to the skin, and looks at the levels of controls and risks required, such as behaviors and gowning practices. The presentation also considers the impact of the knowledge on the use of environmental isolates for culture media testing and applied areas like disinfectant efficacy testing.

Most contamination within the pharmaceutical facility can be traced to humans working in cleanrooms. This is, in some way, evidenced from the association of microorganisms transient or residential to a skin being the primary isolates from environmental monitoring in controlled environments. Human personnel shed high numbers of skin cells mostly as skin flakes. The cleanroom garments worn by personnel cannot contain all human detritus. How effective are these controls in relation to new insights into the human microbiome?
