Disinfectant Validation and Efficacy Testing

Disinfectant Validation Studies are an FDA requirement to demonstrate the broad-spectrum antimicrobial efficacy of one or more disinfectant products employed for pharmaceutical production area qualification prior to use. Test designs are custom to the specific disinfectant(s) chosen by the facility, application method, contact time, surface materials cleaned and relevant microbes (some isolated from the validation site). Every pharmaceutical manufacturing facility is unique, which is why we tailor our approach to meet your specific needs. Our comprehensive clean room disinfectant validation service supports your precise process validation needs.
