Basics Of Labwasher Cleaning Validation
A Q&A with James Espiritu, Laboratory Equipment Business Applications Manager, Miele
Validation is vital to pharmaceutical processes because it assures quality, consistency, and keeps your operations compliant with GMPs. The FDA provides guidance for proper cleaning validation, however challenges occur because interpretation of those procedures vary between facilities.
To better understand the validation and qualification process, we turned to Miele’s James Espiritu. In his 12 years with Miele, Espiritu’s expertise has included glassware washer use in pharmaceutical, wastewater treatment, forensics, and research facilities. In this Q&A, he covers nine fundamentals to keep in mind for labwasher validation — including important validation guidelines to follow, issues that may occur, and the benefits you’ll experience when you properly validate your labwashers.
