This article focuses on applying new and traditional techniques to design a cleaning process, ensure the surfaces are clean, and develop rinse solution analysis to continuously monitor cleaning performance.
Cleaning validation is a regulatory requirement worldwide and an integral process step within the manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and drug products. The approach of designing, qualifying, and monitoring a process is labeled a lifecycle approach. This article focuses on applying new and traditional techniques to design a cleaning process, ensure the surfaces are clean, and develop rinse solution analysis to continuously monitor cleaning performance.
