The Role of Glasses in Aseptic Production: A Detail Often Ignored

October 2, 2006

Pharmaceutical Technology

Glasses are important when operating in a sterile environment, and it is necessary to ensure that they will stand up to repeated sterilization processes without introducing contaminants. The glasses were subjected to numerous steam sterilization cycles to assess durability and microbial reduction. Results showed that the glasses most widely available on the market have been refined by the manufacturer to satisfy pharmaceutical customer needs by withstanding repeated sterilization cycles and minimizing contaminating particle release.
