Elizabeth Rivera
QA Validation Specialist
Johnson & Johnson

Elizabeth Rivera from Steris will present "Cleaning Agent Screening: Key Aspects in Selecting a Suitable Cleaning Agent for GMP Cleaning Procedures." The recent shift from traditional cleaning validation to a cleaning life cycle approach emphasizes the requirement for scientifically sound decisions in the design, qualification, and monitoring of a cleaning process (United States Food and Drug Administration, Pluta, 2009; LeBlanc, 2009; PDA TR29, 2012; Lopolito/Rivera 2014). Cleaning agent screening is a critical element of the cleaning life cycle approach and the right decision during the design phase can bring significant rewards during the qualification and monitoring stages. Cleaning agent selection is often based on historical practices; manufacturing Site A, uses cleaning agent X, therefore Site B, uses cleaning agent X. This approach is ideal if Site A and B are manufacturing the same product, on the same equipment, and have already successfully already transitioned their cleaning validation program to the life cycle model. If the original cleaning agent selection was made without scientific scrutiny then it could drastically increase cost of compliance and risk to the manufacturing process. This presentation will review different factors to consider in screening a cleaning agent based on a scientific, risk based approach. Some topics to be discussed are: chemistry, performance, rinsability, toxicity, environmental impact, safety, stability, among others.
