WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Rouge & Biofilm: Compounding Cleaning Challenges
Rouge may facilitate the development of more tenacious biofilms. Both rouge and biofilm represent cleaning and decontamination challenges to manufacturers. By Michael Gietl and Paul Lopolito
Variability In Sterility Test Processes And The Benefits Of Modular Workstations
A review of the current operational practices that incorporate sterility testing and provides an insight into the role of hydrogen peroxide vapor bio-decontamination and continuous particle monitoring.
Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
Past experiences have shown that too often product quality is based on sole reliance of vendor certifications, statements and promises. To diminish such reliance new technologies started to be implemented, like process analytical technologies (PAT), process controls, automation etc. often once again overexerted as the solution to all problems. Activities that supposedly result in higher product quality due to better process controls. Maik W. Jornitz, Chief Operating Officer, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination: Vapor Vs. Aerosolized Systems
When facing a microbial contamination challenge, hether from multidrug-resistant organisms in a hospital or in bio-pharmaceutical production facilities, not all hydrogen peroxide-based decontamination systems are the same.
Monitoring Chemical Processes For Early Fault Detection Using Multivariate Data Analysis Methods
Multivariate statistical methods can be used to monitor process variables and predict final product quality at an early stage, while also providing deeper understanding of the process. This allows engineers and production managers to optimize their processes, thereby realizing significant cost and time savings. By Dr Frank Westad, Chief Scientific Officer, CAMO Software
How To Eliminate Heat Effect In Your Fume Hoods
Chemical procedures commonly require the introduction of heat. This is typically in the form of a hot plate or open flame. While the best place to perform these types of chemical procedures is inside a chemical fume hood, most people are unaware of heat’s effect on the airflow through the fume hood, and the potential impact on containment.
