Understanding Disinfectant Qualification Studies - How To Avoid Errors
This training on disinfectant qualification studies will discuss the many methods and variations used for disinfectant qualifications, the pitfalls in each method, the errors that can occur and how to identify them. It will show how you can translate the disinfectant qualification results to effective cleaning procedures and avoid FDA observations.
Why Should You Attend:
Disinfectant Qualification is an enormous undertaking for any company. If not planned and executed well; it may lead to results that can be erroneous. Learn from an expert who can share the various mistakes that can occur during this study, leading to unnecessary costs, leaving you with data that cannot be used.
This seminar will discuss all the technical details you need to know about the Disinfectant Qualification Study. The speaker will step by step walk you through the study's technical details and will advice on how to avoid errors. The speaker will also teach data review and how to evaluate log reductions. Using the nature of disinfectants how to pinpoint gross errors and technical glitches that could have occurred during execution of the study. Finally how to use the data generated by this study for routine clean room cleaning operations.
