Disinfectant efficacy validation for life science cleanrooms

Thursday, 22nd July, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CEST.

There are many disinfectants available for use within a cleanroom and there are various national and international efficacy testing standards available to compare and validate them. However, The choice and validation of a disinfectant for use within a critical environment is crucial and will form part of the facility’s contamination control strategy. Life science cleanroom facilities must know that the disinfectants they are using can achieve effective levels of microbial kill across a range of surface types. the problem faced by the validation team is that there are currently differences between EU and US testing methodologies, and the expectation of regulators such as the EPA, ECHA responsible for the BPR, EU GMP, FDA, USP als differs. This webinar will look at the different standards available and their individual pitfalls and challenges, and also discuss if comparisons can be drawn between disinfectants tested using the different test methodologies
