Cleaning Validation

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing Netherlands is well versed in performing effective cleaning validations to eliminate chemical cleaning agent residues on laboratory surfaces and equipment to ensure compliance with guidelines.


Contamination of starting materials, intermediates or finished products by another material or product must be avoided to obtain consistent quality medicinal products or medical devices. The risk of accidental cross-contamination usually arises from uncontrolled release of dust, gases, vapors, sprays from materials and products in process, from residues on equipment and from operators during manufacturing. The potential hazard for patients is determined by the level of hazardous contamination, such as highly-sensitizing compounds, hormones, cytotoxics or living microorganisms, and the administration route, such as injection. Besides a lack of knowledge and thus inappropriate understanding of the cross-contamination risks, is ineffective cleaning the most common source of cross-contamination.
