Getting the best results from any cleaner requires proper mixing and cleaning procedures. Understanding the testing methods commonly used for determining cleanliness of pharmaceutical processing equipment is also important. This article includes mixing directions for aqueous cleaning detergent and methods for monitoring performance.
Virtually any pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment — from tablet presses to stainless-steel mixing tanks — can be cleaned to stringent critically clean criteria by aqueous cleaning. Learn how the use of aqueous cleaning in pharmaceutical manufacturing can provide numerous benefits in terms of efficacy, minimal surface contact, reduced residue potential, and easier cleaning validation.
In a cleanroom environment, it is important to avoid the creation of powdered clouds. In addition, detergents used in cleaning should have sufficient detergent capacity for the highly controlled and clean classified space but allow for an easy rinse. Read more about how liquid concentrate detergents are useful in these environments.
The principal concern for any scientist or technician working in the laboratory is that glassware, instruments, and equipment be free of interfering residues that can cause invalid analytical results. An effective cleaning method, in combination with an appropriate laboratory detergent, can eliminate that concern.
The use of aqueous cleaning in medical device manufacturing can provide numerous benefits in terms of efficacy, minimal surface contact, reduced residue potential, and easier cleaning validation. Learn what is involved in an aqueous critical cleaning process, how to select the proper aqueous cleaner for your application, and validation method guidelines.
Explore how pH affects aqueous critical cleaning. Different types of residues are best cleaned by either an alkaline or acidic cleaner. We outline the types of chemical structures found in pharmaceutical residues that are best cleaned by either acid or base.
Keylajet is a low-foaming high-alkaline liquid designed for hard-to-clean soils, grit, grime, slime, grease, buffing compounds, oils, particulates, deposits, chemicals and solvents, mold releases, metal oxides, and more.
Solujet is a concentrated, phosphate-free, biodegradable, and readily disposable detergent. This low-foaming, high-wetting detergent provides maximum performance. Free rinsing gives users reliable results and no interfering residues. Ideal for clean-in-place (CIP) cleaning and floor-standing lab washing machines.
