A Toxic Conversation

A cleanroom is one of the biggest single investments any business is likely to make. There are many great reasons why companies literally cannot afford to get it wrong, so it makes sense to ensure it is kept operational for as long as possible. The fact of the matter is that overspecifying on sterilisation could well be increasing the lifetime cost of cleanrooms through the wholly avoidable degradation of furniture and equipment.

All fixtures and fittings in cleanrooms must facilitate Good Manufacturing Practice, meaning that materials from which they are constructed need to be chemically inert. It should also be tough enough to withstand the regular sterilisation, which is why austenitic stainless steel has always been such a common feature in cleanroom design. Furniture and other equipment built from this material will maintain its structural integrity for decades, not years. However, this is only the case when it is looked after properly, which means matching it to the chosen sterilisation option and also ensuring it is not at risk from detergents and disinfectants.

PhlexEarchive: The Right Solution for Electronic Archiving of TMF Content

Phlexglobal Ltd

Many sponsor organizations have already recognized the value of moving from paper to electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs). But few sponsors have taken a more holistic approach to the TMF lifecycle and looked at the entire process from study start-up through archiving of the TMF in electronic format, also known as e-archiving. The recurring value of managing, tracking, maintaining and accessing electronic files should not stop at the point of archiving. All of the challenges of managing an active paper TMF carry through to a paper archive. All of the benefits of an electronic TMF also carry through to the electronic archive. As companies look to move their compliance assets to secure, long-term storage, it is important to consider ongoing compliance requirements, security, accessibility, efficiency and costs of archiving TMF content in a digital format.
