Contamination Control Considerations and Cleaning Challenges in  Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

10 Jun 2019 | 9am-5pm | Genting Hotel Jurong, Singapore


Microbial / viral contamination and product cross-contamination are two of the major challenges faced by manufacturing companies within GMP regulated industries. Contamination will affect the drug product's safety, identity, strength, quality and purity. The adulterated drug product will pose significant risk to patient safety.

An effective preventive measure is to design an effective cleaning process, and also understand various causes of contamination and the strategies for remediation and preventive measures.


This seminar will include the following:

  • Cleaning process design considerations
    • Regulatory evolution on cleaning
    • Critical cleaning parameters
    • Type and selection of cleaning agent
    • Lab scale study
    • Health based acceptance limits
  • Microbial contamination and remediation in water system / process equipment
    • Sources of contamination
    • Biofilm remediation
    • Case study
  • Strategies for remediation and prevention of rouge
    • Understanding rouge formation
    • Strategies for remediation and preventive measures
  • Virus safety of cleaned surfaces
    • Viral clearance strategy
    • Understanding critical cleaning parameters and viral inactivation parameters
    • Cleaning challenges and how to overcome them

Key Take Away:

Key take away from this seminar are the understanding of the regulations related to cleaning, important elements of cleaning process design, strategies of remediation of biofilm and rouge formation in water system / process equipment. 

The common cleaning challenges encountered in GMP manufacturing are also discussed, including the strategies of remediation.
