A New Approach To Laboratory Efficiency: On-site Instrument Concierge Service
Scientists are spending an enormous amount of their time and effort simply getting instrumentation to the point that it can be used,” the NRC reports. “This wasted time can be used more productively when a well-functioning repair and maintenance system is in place.
Avoiding Capping Or Lamination During Tablet Production
Anyone who has experienced capping or lamination during tablet production knows the frustration that comes from trying to diagnose the issue. In this article, we discuss a possible cause and several solutions.
Interpreting The Results After A Chemical Decontamination Cycle Performed With Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide
The unexpected growth of a biological indicator (BI) at the end of a decontamination cycle is certainly an undesirable and problematic event. What can and should be done at this point?
Case Study: Bag Handling, Check Sieving, Weigh System
In this installation, materials are received in 50-pound bags and semi-bulk bags and are security screened for foreign objects while being conveyed to a weigh hopper, where they are automatically hatched in predetermined weights and discharged into process drums.
Particle Testing in Cleanroom High-Pressure Gas Lines for ISO 14644
This paper provides guidelines for the testing of high pressure gases used in cleanrooms according to the cleanliness limits derived from the ISO 14644-1 cleanroom classification standard, the FDA cGMP guidelines and the EU GMP Guidelines. Specifically, this applications paper relates to satisfying the air particle concentration limits of Class 100 (ISO 5) where product is exposed to the air environment.
The Cost Of A Powder Stoppage
Operations managers cope with powder jams on a recurring basis. At least once a month, there may be a more significant event that brings production to a halt and seriously affects output for that day.
