Keeping cleanrooms clean takes more than soap and water. Mark the calendar for Thursday, June 29, when Jim Polarine lays out the problems facing manufacturers plus state-of-the-art solutions.

Disinfectant Testing and Validation
**An FDAnews Webinar**
June 29, 2017 — 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

Think of cleaning and disinfecting as personal oral hygiene. Manufacturers want (and need) their cleanrooms really clean. No bacteria, no molds, no spores, no harmful residue…nothing, or as close to “nothing” as humanly possible.

Distressingly, levels of bacterial and mold contamination are on the rise. The FDA and EMU have responded with growing numbers of warning letters, 483s and other sanctions. For drug, device, biologics and supplement makers — compounders too — keeping it clean gets harder every day.

What are the best products to use? In what combination? On what schedule? How to test? These are just some of the questions being asked everyday on this subject.

Take charge of contamination. Sign up today for an all-new webinar from FDAnews featuring Jim Polarine Jr. MA., a recognized expert on disinfectant testing and validation.

Mr. Polarine takes attendees on a deep dive into the specifics of cleanroom sanitation. In this fast-paced hour-and-a-half learning session, attendees will discover:

  •     Proven ways to limit cleanroom contamination from incoming items
  •     Proper cleanroom design and condition
  •     Best products to control bacterial and mold spores
  •     Current sporicide and disinfectant regulations in the U.S. and the E.U.
  •     Proven approaches to coupon testing and determining spore contamination sources
  •     And much more!

Attendees will learn ways to address even such resistant species as Bacillus cereus, and walk through case studies on testing intricacies including porosity of surfaces, surface sterilization, and pooling on surfaces.

One patient death can destroy a company. Avoid lawsuits and liability, and keep regulators at arm’s length. Learn how to keep cleanrooms cleaner.
