Excerpt from the Alconox, Inc. Critical Cleaning White Paper, “Cleaning Validation for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing”

Why get Cleaning Validation Support from the Cleaner Supplier?

Cleaning validation is a necessary and time consuming part of manufacturing pharmaceuticals.  The validation process can be expedited and cost of validation can be lowered if the cleaner supplier can provide support, allowing for pharmaceuticals to get to market faster and at a lower cost. This paper outlines the basics of cleaning validation, as well as discussing the kinds of support services you should seek from your supplier of critical cleaning products in order to optimize your cleaning validation process…

…To simplify validations, it is recommended that a matrix of worst case equipment to clean and worst case residues to remove be created. Start by first assembling an equipment matrix and residue matrix that defines all shared and dedicated equipment with what residues they are exposed to.
