What is Cleaning Validation?


In the pharmaceutical sector, cleaning validation is mandatory to ensure that a cleaning process removes chemical and microbial residues from the active, inactive, or detergent components of the product manufactured in a piece of equipment.

Analytical methods used to determine the absence of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) must be properly validated to demonstrate their ability to detect any remaining API. This approach applies to all manufacturers operating in the pharmaceutical GMP environment.

Why QbD Group?


The pharmaceutical industry focuses on cleaning validation because cross-contamination of previous batches must be avoided under all circumstances to ensure patient safety.

Cleaning validation for the introduction of new products into a manufacturing facility requires significant resources from the QC department for analytical method validation and sample analysis.

In many cases, this work is on top of the routine QC and R&D activities performed by the laboratory.

Outsourcing validation and the necessary QC work not only helps to allocate your QC staff to their core activities but also provides a clear picture of the associated costs and timelines in advance of the project.

Quercus Labs – part of the QbD Group – has a GMP license, an ISO 17025 certificate and is audited by the Belgian FAGG. We are qualified and happy to help you.
