I've developed a mantra of sorts over the years that talks about what people want from work. I've added and subtracted items from the list, and I've explained them in different ways over the years, but fundamentally, people want:
Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) can be a "silent poisoner" of your process and product. AMC is any unwanted organic or inorganic molecule that is carried by the air to the surface of the product.
We often take measurements. We want to know how much of something we have or donâ€™t have. Itâ€™s what we technologists do.
There can be no mistaking that we are entering a new era in the pharmaceutical and biotech marketplace.
Cost reduction is no longer just a part of the overall continuous program; it is the critical requirement for survival.
An environmental sampling process that employs technology, ensures cleanroom efficiency and security.
Perhaps the most commonly used metrics to compare consumables are sorbency and cleanliness. Sorbency, or the ability of a textile product to wick and hold liquid, can be a useful metric for cleanroom applications that may involve large liquid spills.
Some process or change you are driving requires a sign-off from what seems like every manager in your company. Even when your work is done, you have to chase people down (most often managers), process their feedback, and get them to click a button or sign on the line.
Given that the FDA’s compliance focus, as a result of 483 observations and warning letters, is on “inadequate facility design” and “environmental and personnel monitoring,” one can only conclude that the skill level, training, and attitude of the personnel involved were inadequate in the cases cited.
While we use phrases like “terminal sterilization,” we must remember that sterilization is a matter of degree or probability. In a sterilization process, the nature of microbiological death is therefore described by an exponential function, an expression of probability.
Boss A is reserved, rarely gives praise. Boss B is friendly, gives lots of praise. For whom would you rather work?
Green, environmentally-preferred, sustainable, biobased, safe â€” the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. However, their meaning and interpretation really depend on oneâ€™s viewpoint.
