It is generally believed in the life science world that all regulatory and compliance issues go away when a document management system is implemented, preferably the most expensive system with untold rewards. Most of these systems do not do all of the things required for the life science industry out of the box.
Powder metallurgy (PM) is an industrial method for obtaining metal or metal-like powders, molding semifinished goods from powders, and manufacturing particles from them by a thermal process, called sintering.
Positive reinforcement is the practice of rewarding desirable employee behavior in order to strengthen that behavior. For example, when you praise an employee for doing a good job, you increase the likelihood of him/her doing that job very well again.
The closed vial technology is based on a vial that is provided clean and sterile with the stopper in place. Thanks to such container design, the most complex filling steps of classical open vials, such as vial washing, stopper washing, and hot air tunnel sterilization, are eliminated.

Once obsessed with metallic impurity levels, reducing variations in the delivered gas purity has become the primary focus of contamination control engineers managing gas distributions systems. When used correctly at bulk sources or at the point-of-use, gas purifiers can remove harmful impurities down to the ppt range.
The exhaust ductwork in a laboratory at a major pharmaceutical company in North Carolina needed replacement. Since the ductwork was used to exhaust BSCs for testing on HIV and HCV, special precautions would be required during the demolition.
It is recommended that when comparing cleanroom consumable products manufactured by several vendors that all products be tested at the same lab, with the same test method, and by the same technician. What test methods are recommended for cleanroom consumable products?
