A critical technology in the science of contamination control, environmental monitoring is a technique that provides important data on the quality of a process, processing environment, and final product, which can aid scientists in identifying and eliminating potential sources of contamination in cleanrooms and controlled environments. In response to the scattered industry and ISO standards and technical reports on the subject, this title provides comprehensive information about environmental monitoring, including monitoring of viable and non-viable air, surfaces, water, alert and action levels, trending, procedures for responding to excursions, certification/requalification, and the application of new ISO standards. Because the interpretation of results is vital in controlling contamination, several chapters discuss the presentation of data, trending, and investigations, and how they are valuable in reducing risk to the product, process, and patient.

Biocontamination Control for Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare outlines a biocontamination strategy that tracks bio-burden control and reduction at each transition in classified areas of a facility. This key part of controlling risk escalation can lead to the contamination of medicinal products, hence necessary tracking precautions are essential. Regulatory authorities have challenged pharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers, and those in manufacturing practice to adopt a holistic approach to contamination control. New technologies are needed to introduce barriers between personnel and the environment, and to provide a rapid and more accurate assessment of risk. This book offers guidance on building a complete biocontamination strategy. Provides the information necessary for a facility to build a complete biocontamination strategy Helps facilities understand the main biocontamination risks to medicinal products Assists the reader in navigating regulatory requirements Provides insight into developing an environmental monitoring program Covers the types of rapid microbiological monitoring methods now available, as well as current legislation
