Vaccines, Parenterals, Injectables, Inhalants and Ophthalmics produced in ISO Class 5 or higher aseptic fill areas or in sterile isolators require stringent cleaning and disinfection protocols.
Polyester knits are preferred for critical areas where visible fibers are of concern. Polyester/cellulose and polypropylene nonwoven wipers may be used in less critical areas. Wipers are often used with Sterile 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) trigger sprays. Pre-sterilized wipers pre-wetted with 70% IPA offer a convenient alternative. Benefits include optimal wetness levels for effective particle removal, minimized VOC’s, reduced spill potential and elimination of storage and disposal of excess IPA.
Cleaning validation is conducted to verify that no residue remains from previously manufactured product or from disinfectants and cleaning solutions. A full line of cleaning validation swabs and TOC Cleaning Validation Kits are available.
