Cleaning of Isolators and Bio-Safety Cabinets

Cleanroom Management in Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare

Cleaning of separative enclosures such as isolators and bio-safety cabinets requires specialized procedures for optimum results — procedures termed as “critical cleaning.”

"The manner in which pharmaceutical isolators, compounding aseptic isolators and bio-safety cabinets are used dictate the somewhat varied approach to cleaning and where applicable, disinfection practices. Good contamination control practices and dedicated adherence to established, written SOPs will minimize cross-contamination surprises."
This is the basis of an introductory article by Karen Bonnell, Howard Siegerman on cleaning isolators and safety cabinets.
The article can be reviewed via Controlled Environments.
