Cleaning and disinfection best practices


Within the pharmaceutical organisation, microbial contamination may arise from many sources such as water, raw materials, environmental failures and people, as well as from inadequate cleaning. Due to these multiple sources of contamination and the different types of microorganisms associated with them, disinfectants used in the pharmaceutical industry must have a broad spectrum of activity and be effective against a wide range of organisms in different physiological states.



With this important subject, Tim Sandle has written a detailed white paper.


The focus of this white paper is upon the regulations and procedural requirements, and the qualification requirements for introducing a disinfectant into use.


The reference is:
