Managing Disinfectant Residues In Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms

Disinfectant residues

Cleanroom residues can be generated by the manufacturing process, raw materials, certainly by people, but a significant contributor to residues in a cleanroom are the disinfectants themselves. Many common and well used disinfectants leave significant residues on a surface, which can subsequently have a detrimental effect on the effectiveness of the disinfectant used. 

This is acknowledged in EU GMP draft Annex 1, “Cleaning programmes should be effective in the removal of disinfectant residues.”

There are currently no approved or validated methods for assessing the amount of residue on a non product contact surfaces. This webinar will look at quantifying the amount of residue left by common cleanroom disinfectants, the effect on different surfaces on appearance of residues, and other factors which can affect residue management.
