Cleaning Fundamentals for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Though cleanliness is important in virtually any industry, companies in the pharmaceutical landscape are held to particularly stringent standards.

Everything, from the cleaning agents you choose to the pharmaceutical cleaning validation strategy you follow, needs to be carefully assessed to ensure the right results. Whether you’re implementing measures to avoid microbial contamination or you’re committed to keeping your cleanroom environments in exceptional condition, the right pharmaceutical cleaning company can help.

At Pritchard Industries, we can aid with all of the key components of pharmaceutical cleaning, including:

  • Selecting cleaning agents: The choice of cleaning agents and detergents used in pharmaceutical cleaning is crucial to ensure microorganisms, residues, and contaminants are removed from surfaces and equipment, preserving product safety and compliance.
  • Implementing the correct cleaning process: Pharmaceutical cleaning methods encompass various approaches, from “Clean-In-Place” (CIP) methods for on-site equipment cleaning to “Clean-Out-of-Place (COP) measures and manual cleaning strategies. We can help you select and implement proper standard operating procedures for safety and hygiene.
  • Validation and verification: Validation and verification processes are crucial to ensuring the efficacy of your cleaning procedure. We can help you follow strict cleaning validation standards to establish your cleaning methods are effective in removing contaminants from your facility, safeguarding products and patient safety.

Challenges in Pharmaceutical Cleaning

The unique nuances of the Pharmaceutical landscape lead to unique challenges for innovative businesses to overcome. Pharmaceutical manufacturing companies don’t just need to adhere to strict compliance guidelines and requirements; they also need to mitigate a range of problems on a daily basis, from potential contamination issues to risks caused by exposure to dangerous substances.

For many in the pharmaceutical landscape, cross-contamination is a primary concern. Even the slightest amount of residue left over on a surface can impact product safety and efficacy, making attention to detail and the use of the right sanitizing agent essential.

Companies need to be able to effectively detect and remove residue left behind on products and equipment, often using specialized equipment that requires extensive expertise. What’s more, the use of the wrong cleaning solution can risk the longevity of essential equipment.

Sensitive and sophisticated equipment in the pharmaceutical industry can easily be damaged by a harsh detergent solution or chemical. This means cleaning professionals need to be educated on equipment cleaning procedures to know which materials and processes are safe to use when working with complex machinery.

On top of all this, strict regulatory guidelines, such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and FDA guidelines, can be difficult to manage. Compliance with these guidelines requires more than the use of the correct cleaning station and services. Companies also need to design and follow standard operating procedures, maintain meticulous documentation, and audit their processes regularly.
